BBC iPlayer Updated
If you´ve been following development of BBC iPlayer, this major update will be of your liking. XDA member FryWalker incorporated the option to watch all the latest Soccer highlights from World Cup. The dev also added an option to keep the device awake while downloading. CorePlayer v1.3.6 is recommended as default player.
As in previous versions, QVGA, VGA or WVGA are supported on devices running WM6 and up.
An Android version is available too.
