International BBC Sport app now supports larger tablets

The international version of the BBC Sport app has now been updated to support larger tablets - the iPad, Android tablets and Kindle Fire 8.9" devices.

Following the UK update in December 2013 this is now available for all users globally; the app is already freely available from Google Play  for Android devices, the App Store  for iPhones, and the Amazon Kindle Fire Appstore. 

Previously, the app had been optimised for devices up to seven inches, however, based on user feedback, a decision was made to scale up the app to make the most of larger screen sizes.
