Sky Sports for iPad Gets a Hefty Update

Football fans will be pleased to know that Sky has released an update for its Sky Sports iPad app in time for this Saturday's Champions League final. Recombu reports that the Champions League Event Center portion of the application now contains support for Sky Sports 360, which means 20 camera angles. That's right. If you've ever felt the need to review every goal in slow motion from numerous different angles, the Sky Sports application has you covered.

"This is great news for the Sky Sports for iPad app, which keeps getting better and better," David Gibbs, Director of Sky Sports Digital Media, is quoted as saying. "This is about putting the technology into the hands of the viewer and allowing them to recapture the big moments in the final. It’s the first time we’ve offered this through our app and it’s another example of our investment in the Sky Sports viewer’s experience."

The Sky Sports for iPad application is currently on version 5.4 and is compatible with devices running iOS 5 or later. It presently has a 3.5 star rating in the App Store.
