iPlayer for iOS now allows you to download content

The BBC has updated its iPlayer app for iOS devices. The biggest change is that the app now lets you download content over WiFi for viewing while off line. The app lets you download content for up to 30 days at a time.

There isn’t much more to say about the app other than a recommendation to grab it, if you’re eligible to download it (ie, pay a fee or be in the UK). The app plays any content from the iPlayer service and with the download option added, makes it handy for WiFi or WiFi+3G owners who might want to catch up with a show whilst on the move.

You can grab the app from the Apple App Store or via the iTunes App Store on your Mac or PC.
