Official BBC Android App On It’s Way

UK users rejoice! Even if you’re a BBC fan in the U.S., and I know plenty of them myself, you’ll be happy to know there is a BBC Android app coming to the Android Market soon. The app will deliver news along with sports. It’s also even possible that iplayer will be included which will allow users to watch news they might have missed.
