If you have a Sky+ box then this app for the iPhone and iPad is a must. The app has listings for all your Sky channels, and once you have set up your account it just shows the channels for your region. Browse to a show you want to tape and press record – the request arrives on your Sky+ box within seconds!
The only downsides I’ve noticed are that you can’t set a series link via the app, and you can’t start a recording once the programme has begun.
This is a great addition to the Sky service which means that whenever you are made aware of a program you don’t want to miss you can set it up to record there and then – no more missed shows.
