A free international iPhone and iPod touch app has been released by BBC Sport.

The application, providing football transfer news, will soon have other features, including video. It will also release a version for Android.

Head of interactive for BBC Sport Ben Gallop said: «Our aim is to provide the best of BBC Sport wherever you are. A third of traffic to the BBC Sport site already comes from mobile — a proportion that rises to more than 40% at the weekend when live sport is going on.»

Controller of Digital and Technology, BBC Global News James Montgomery said: «Thanks to our responsive mobile site, the sports content we provide on mobile devices is already a large traffic driver for the BBC, which gives us a competitive edge in international markets. Now with the launch of our international sports app for iOS devices, we are giving users another simple way to get the content they love, whether it’s checking out how their team have got on, following live text updates on the day’s sporting action or catching up with the latest news.»
