I always wanted something like this on my mobile phone. It’s such a convenient way to get entire TV programme schedule on a handy device instead of switching on the TV set and keep browsing on a slow, sluggish guides available on set-top boxes.
We must set our calendar to Gregorian if using iOS 4 on higher to get this app working. In most cases, there is no need to do this step unless you have changed the calendar settings which are under Settings> General> International> Calender> Choose Gregorian Calender.
The USPs of this app are:
- It is lightweight and nicely designed (especially on iOS)
- Hence it works fast even on GPRS connection
- We can create a list of favorite channels which helps get quick info
- We can create alerts for specific programme & it delivers the alert 5 minutes before the programme begin
- No Internet required and can be viewed offline once the data is updated.
- And post it on Facebook and Twitter so that we can tell them what we’re watching or what we don’t want them to miss
