    It's just a plugin to enable the Website to work. The app is out next week. People slating it in the reviews don't seem to realise that.

    Is there any reason to install this over the iPlayer app next week? I installed this on my S2 as well and don't see the point.

    Yes one on. Google play is not the new one. Hence telling. People it will be out next week.
    I cannot paste the link from yesterday's news from my nexus. Perhaps someone else could to clear this up.

    The media player released a few days ago is only useful if you have a Jelly Bean device and haven't side loaded flash.

    What is the iplayer app like for Nexus? Im a bit sceptical about updating my iplayer app to the new one just incase it isn't as good. Ive updated it on my HTC and and I've had to download the BBC Media app thing aswell to get the iplayer to work.
