If you are lucky enough to be a Sky subscriber you will already know the great services that they provide including your satellite television, broadband and telephone services. Recently Sky have developed some great new applications for the iPhone 4S which can be enjoyed by Sky subscribers along with those who do not subscribe.
The most impressive app that Sky have developed is the Sky+ app. This service enables iPhone 4S users to set their decoder box at home to record straight from their handset. This is great for people that sometimes leave the house forgetting to record their favourite programmes and important sports matches. Before setting recordings users can click on the TV Guide provided and choose the programme from the list. There is also an easy search option where users can simply enter the name of the show which will take you directly to it. Another one of Sky's new applications is new Sky Go which allows you to view a wide range of Sky TV broadcasts directly on your handset. Lots of channels are included such as the sports and movie packages. These services work at their best with a Wifi connection, however 3G also provides great viewing.
The Sky Cloud application is great for people on the go allowing Sky Unlimited broadband subscribers to connect to one of thousands of nationwide WiFi hotspots. As most iPhone 4S users only have Wifi in the comfort of their own home this is a great application that will prevent them from eating into their monthly data allowance. This along with the great browsing speed makes using services such as social networking sites while on the move an enjoyable and fast experience.
Sky have also developed applications which are available for all to enjoy, not just Sky subscribers. The Sky News app offers users a great service to find news stories and current affairs. You are will be presented with a very neat and easy to use interface which displays columns of news stories and a horizontal bar which will allow you to select different categories such as local weather, sport and also international news stories. Video clips are also available with many of the stories. A very similar service which is provided with Sky Sports News which is also very easy to navigate around and will allow users to keep up to date with their favourite sports, fixtures and results.
