    Default BBC iPlayer app

    i thought the beeb had brought an app for the Nexus 10 so we don't have to go through the BBC website. It currently shows up in the Google Playstore has incompatible with my device.....

    If it works like the original iPlayer it will not be compatible as it uses Adobe Flash which is not supported.

    You have to download further files to make it work...
    See this blog:
    How can I watch iPlayer on my Nexus 7? - Telegraph

    Which takes you to the XDA Forum:
    BBC Iplayer Working and how to, with files - xda-developers

    I agree though, the Beeb should have addressed this by now, as they acknowledged the issue in August 2012! Look at the history on XDA...
    There seems to be several solutions if you read the lot, and I'm not sure which one is best yet...

    that would be it then. Silly me expecting a region locked app to say it is region locked instead of claiming "This app is incompatible with all of your devices."

    Downloaded the new version last week, great that we can now download programmes to our tablets to view later on.
