myPlayer – Now Available for Android

You may remember an article written not too long ago about an app by the name of myPlayer for Windows Mobile, which allowed users to access BBC iPlayer without using web browsers (see original article here). XDA member FryWalker brings us the same app, but this time for Android devices. Unlike its WM counterpart, this app is designed to work only with BBC (no Hulu and others). The app is still in Beta but the dev has promised that expanded functionality will be added in the upcoming releases..

Features:

  • Extensive BBC iPlayer integration
  • Fully featured programme search
  • Browse by iPlayer category
  • Automatic stream quality (3G or wifi)

Requirements:

  • Android OS version 1.5 (cupcake) or higher
  • An internet connection that is UK based

You can follow development and find more information in the application thread.
