BBC Sport app now supports larger tablets

BBC Sport has updated its app to support larger tablets - the iPad, Android tablets and Kindle Fire 8.9" devices.

This update is available across devices for UK users; the app is already freely available from Google Play  for Android devices, the App Store  for iPhones, and the UK Amazon Kindle Fire Appstore. 

Previously, the app had been optimised for devices up to seven inches, however, based on user feedback, a decision was made to scale up the app to make the most of larger screen sizes.

In our previous update to the app we added live streaming of BBC Radio 5 live and sports extra, meaning UK users can listen to live sport while reading the latest match reports, news and analysis.

Accessed from the main menu within the app, the integrated radio player shows now-and-next information for both stations, with links through to the full schedule. The app already offers streaming of all our live video and on-demand highlights.

To stop or pause the audio, it is simply a case of hitting a button in the menu; there is no need to go back into the player.

BBC Sport app updates

Over recent months, there have been other updates, including making customisation available on all devices. Got a favourite football team or sport? Simply add them to the quick links and they will always be just a click away.

Ahead of a year that includes the Winter Olympics, Commonwealth Games and World Cup, we have also made it easier to access the indexes for these events. 2014 will be full of iconic sporting moments; with the BBC Sport app you can enjoy them all through video, radio and text coverage.
