ABC iPad app updated Just a day after sources said it was set to happen, the popular ABC iPad app has been updated to support streaming 3G, giving users a chance to stream their videos on-the-go.
Version 1.1.1004 is the latest version now available in the Apple App Store.

The update was submitted a week ago as the iPad 3G was set for release last Friday.

The ABC app was at times the top free app available, and is currently number 5 in the iPad App Store.

Among the new features are:

- 3G streaming (requires a 3G capable device)
- Landscape orientation support for all screens
- Support for the iPad's orientation lock
- Updated player controls that are more responsive
- Improved display of parental ratings
- Numerous other bug fixes and stability enhancements


It is still unclear what kind of bandwidth restrictions AT&T has imposed on streaming via 3G, but reportedly the video streams will be capped at 64 Kb/s, strongly degrading quality.

64K? What is the point of having 3G when you have a 64K cap?
