Connected TV platform YouView has updated its remote record app for Apple’s iPhone and iPad to include a search facility.
Users can now search the app’s built-in 7 day programme guide and set their boxes to record while away from home.
The updated app also includes a redesigned date selector which better matches the design of the YouView box’s EPG.
The programme information page now includes links to related programmes plus details of HD and repeat showings of the selected programme where available.
The YouView App is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later.
YouView says the search facility will be added to its Android app “in due course”
