AirPlay connectivity added to iPlayer

The BBC's iPlayer (UK only) received an update on Tuesday, reaching Version 2.2.

Version 2.2 also includes an improved search function, providing one-tap access to previous searches, results grouped by series, and a dedicated search section on iPad with image-led results. Accessibility features have been improved as well, with better VoiceOver support added prior to and after favorites have been added to the Favorites screen.

Waze's latest update now live

Waze, a community-based traffic and navigation app, released its newest version yesterday. The crowd-sourcing method of mapping traffic conditions and cheap gas station locations has been improved predominantly in terms of its search function. Google Search has become the default search provider, and is now at the forefront of the main map screen. Auto-complete has been added, and is to be made public in the upcoming weeks. Lastly, the map format has been simplified, grouping duplicate condition reports together. Version 3.7.3 of Waze is available for both Android and iPhone.
