app.jpgYou may have already heard the news that today at a keynote speech at Mobile World Congress, BBC Director of Future Media & Technology Erik Huggers has announced that the BBC is to offer a new range of applications that will deliver BBC Online services to a range of mobile devices. Licence fee payers have already been able to access the BBC website on mobile phones for eight years and today's announcement means that public service content can be better enjoyed on the move.

Erik's own blog post concerning the evolution and thinking behind the initiative is here on the Internet blog, as is David Madden's post demonstrating the News, Sport and iPlayer apps in more detail. And for even more detail we have Pete Clifton getting to grips with the implications of the BBC News app on the BBC Editors blog.
