The last update of the BBC’s iPlayer app for iOS was supposed to have fixed the disappearing download issue that was affecting the app (they said “The mystery of disappearing downloads is over!”) but it looks like it didn’t resolve all the issues. The BBC have released another update to the iPad and iPhone app that attempts to address the problem. Hopefully Version 3.1.1 will fix issues.
The updated app is free from the iTunes Store.
What’s New in Version 3.1.1
Thanks for letting us know that our last update didn’t resolve the disappearing downloads issue for all users as we’d hoped.
We’ve done some further investigation and have made some more fixes for this release.
Hopefully you will be back to enjoying downloaded programmes without any more issues.
