YouView has added new search function to its iOS companion app. Which works with the iPhones from 3GS and up, iPod touch from third generation and the iPad.
You can search for shows in the TV Guide and Now & Next menus and the app will save your most recent searches to make finding your favourites channels and shows even easier.
The updated YouView iOS app will let you search for both channels and TV shows, so you can search for say ‘Dave’ or ‘Holby City’ and the app will do the rest.
It will also show other programmes in a series and HD versions of shows will be presented where available.
Right now only the YouView iOS app has been updated. YouView say the Android version is coming soon. But have so far not given a time, to when this will happen.
Download YouView for iOS from iTunes here.
So pleased that YouView has now launched an Android App. Been waiting for this since app, since I got my YouView box just before last Christmas (2012).
Here is a list of the apps features:-
• TV GUIDE: 7 day television programme guide
• NOW AND NEXT: See which programmes are on Now and Next across all channels
• CHANNEL LIST: See all programmes on a chosen channel
• PROGRAMME INFORMATION: Information on TV and radio shows for the next 7 days
• REMOTE RECORD: Set your YouView box to record your favourite TV shows or series while out and about
• CONNECT MULTIPLE DEVICES: Connect up to 5 devices (Android and iOS combined) with your YouView box so you and your family can use the YouView remote record service
