How BBC’s top 10 apps have fared

MUMBAI: BBC has announced that its top ten apps have been downloaded over 70 million times since launch. The UK pubcaster is anticipating a bumper year for app downloads as new tablets and smartphones are unwrapped at Christmas.

BBC iPlayer leads the way, racking up 30 million downloads on its own, followed by BBC News with 15 million downloads and BBC Weather with 9.5 million.

Since its first app launched in 2010, the top 10 most popular BBC apps in the UK are:

1. BBC iPlayer – 30 million downloads

2. BBC News – 15 million downloads

3. BBC Weather – 9.5 million downloads

4. BBC iPlayer Radio – 6.8 million downloads

5. BBC Sport – 5.3 million downloads

6. CBeebies Playtime – 3.4 million downloads

7. The Voice UK – 825,000 downloads

8. CBeebies Storytime – 576,000 downloads

9. CBBC Ludus – 180,000 downloads

10. CBBC Gory Games Play-along – 156,000 downloads

Recent Ofcom research shows that over eight in 10 of adults now go online using any type of device in any location. 44 per cent of households also now have access to a tablet (up by a factor of four over the past two years).

One in three children in the UK now has their own tablet, which has also nearly doubled year on year, and with new apps for young ones such as CBeebies Storytime and GO CBBC launching in 2014, the BBC is expecting their apps for children to continue to grow.
