BBC's iPlayer for iOS has received an update that should make owner's of Apple's third-generation iPad rather happy. In addition to improving overall performance and adding more VoiceOver controls, the popular streaming app now delivers video and graphics worthy of the tablet's Retina display. This particular update only affects the UK version of the app, although iMore expects that the improvements should hit the global version of iPlayer in the near future. The free app can be downloaded now for subscribers that want access to the last seven days of BBC's television and radio programs through their iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
