Mmm, it's ok if your just wanting to setup recordings to your box. But this lacks the ability to actually watch your recorded shows on the go or from another room in your home from your linked devices. If it had these features, it would be an awesome app! So come on Freesat, let us all be able to record AND watch our shows too.
The TV guide has been updated in a beta version and is much better - it's now based on a moving grid which brings it closer in line with guides from other providers. It still has a few issues though. The guide does not show the record status of a programme - please inlude this. The 'now' button is a good idea, but it's in the wrong place at the bottom of the grid and obscures the final row of the grid. Please put in the 'ribbon' at the top.
It's a great app the remote programming feature is excellent. However I find it unreliable often not able to display data or not updating. The new Today feature again is great but often displays "loading" or "cannot display data" message. If reliability could be improved I'd give it 5 stars.
OK, after the "issues" in November 2016 the developer if contacted directly was able to issue a "temporary" work around which got it all working again, albeit with what I consider missing features. However the latest version (2.1.94) for me is really very good, everything works, and the "floating" programme menu where you can easily scroll horizontally and vertically all just by dragging with your finger is great. Setting recording seems to be 100% reliable so far as well, all in all, vast improvements have been made!
I used to have Sky and was worried I'd lose the features it offered. I've been using this for almost 3 months now and don't miss Sky even a little bit. I can do all I want and expect from an app like this. If you want to stream content then use the appropriate app. I get more from this app than the Sky app gave me.
Impressed with the app. There appears to be a bug when searching for a show. The series/episode entries are the wrong way around. They are correct when you go into the detail. E.g. Series 20 Episode 4 in the search result, but Series 4 Episode 20 in the programme detail.
We’ve taken your feedback on board and built a new layout for our TV Guide, so you can now seamlessly scroll through the next 7 days.
We’ve done a huge amount of work under the hood as well, improving the stability of Remote Control mode and fixing bugs along the way.
