    I may be wrong, but on the face of it, it looks like the existing web remote. Anyone able to do a review?

    It's just a basic TV guide app but allows remote record. It's in no way like the fully functional ipad app, but I never expected that.

    It's just much quicker and easier to use on the phone than the website as it's formatted for the screen and remembers the logon details, with the website I was forever having to log out and back in again to get it to recognise me.

    Not bad at all. Fairly slick assuming the remote record request I tried out works :)

    Of course, no-one makes anything like this for us poor Symbian users :( (Not that I need it; but we don't get any other good apps either!)

    I think quite a few android/iphone apps are just a wrapper around an exisitng website designed to preset the data in a way more appropriate to a small screen.

    Anyway, downloaded it and had a quick play and it looks good ... probably a bit easier to use than the website.

    Any of you early adopters able to upload/share the APK file directly please? I've got an android tablet which, as it isn't a telephone (there's a clue in the name), Android market refuses to acknowledge exists so can't download from there.

    Pretty please?

    Just scheduled a recording with it ... spotted that Horizon on NASA and the moon looked interesting tonight during my lunch time read of the "i".

    What phone do you have? It seems some low res phones like the HTC Wildfire can't run the ap.

    Runs on my phone - Yay :up:
    But not on my tablet - Boo. :thumbsdown:

    Which is a shame, because the tablet was where I imagined using it the most.

    Well, it's a start.
    It only (by default) shows now & next for all channels.
    Clicking on a channel shows the listing for the day

    There is no search facility! :\

    Changelog is 'Removed tablet support and revised help wording'.

    So might not want to update to this if you're on a tablet.
