Sky+ for Android App Gets an Update

BSkyB has updated the Sky+ for Android application to add a few extra new features as well as a new UI for the application. Sky says the app now includes enhanced search, the ability to browse the full on demand service and download programs to a compatible Sky+HD box.


"We're now taking the Sky+ experience even further with enhanced search letting customers find shows in a more intuitive and faster way," Luke Bradley-Jones, brand director for TV products at Sky, is quoted by Recombu as saying. "And as more customers use search, the richer the technology that powers the search suggestions will become."

Sky+ for Android originally launched back in July 2010 and is now on version 4.0.0. It's supports Android 2.2 and higher and is currently rated at 4.5 stars (based on more than 10,000 ratings) on the Google Play Store.
