BBC releases new iPlayer Downloads app for Mac, PC without Adobe Air

The BBC has released a new version of its iPlayer Desktop for Mac and PC that offers improved downloads of BBC television programs. BBC iPlayer Downloads, which now no longer uses Adobe AIR nor offers Windows Media files for security and cost reasons, will let users download shows from the on-demand service for later viewing, with users able to cue a download of a show in the client using links on the iPlayer website itself. Existing BBC iPlayer downloads will continue to work until their scheduled expiry dates.

Twitter upgrades embedded photo tweets, makes images more prominent

Twitter is updating the way it displays images in embedded tweets putting the graphical content front and center. Embedded posts with photographs will now show the image first, with the related tweet underneath as a caption. The larger image will be larger and work for both portrait and landscape photographs, while clicking the picture will now show readers Twitter conversation resulting from the image post, as well as more relevant information.
