YouView updates iOS and Android apps

YouView_logo_380Internet TV platform YouView has updated its remote record apps Android and for Apple’s iOS devices.

The latest version of the Android app includes the ability to search for the app’s built-in 7 day programme guide and voice-to-text entry on selected Android devices.

It also includes a redesigned date selector r 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.

All of the above enhancements were added to the iOS version of the app last month.

A new version of the iOS app released today includes support for Apple’s iOS 7 operating system, improvements to the search facility and support for both Hidden and Internet (IPTV) channels.

The hidden channels feature means channels hidden by the user on their box’s EPG will no longer show on the app.

IPTV channel support will allow users with additional channels such as BT Sport to record them from the app once boxes receive a software update enabling this feature.

YouView have previously promised the ability to record internet channels will be enabled by autumn 2013.
