The free application will also be available, at a later date, on BlackBerry and phones running Google's Android software.

BBC said it intends to update the application later in the year to include more content, including Formula 1.
It also announced that it will release a news app to be released in April that will offer content from the BBC News website including written stories, blogs as well as audio and video.
