Freeview launches iPad and Android apps

Digital TV service Freeview has released an Android and iPad app, while also updating its iPhone app. The app will list TV schedules for each Freeview Channel, while also allowing users to share their watchlists through Twitter, Facebook and email, and leave reminders for upcoming shows, and can be viewed offline. Another feature allows users to check what is trending on Twitter to find out what hot topics are being discussed about programmes airing at the moment. Adrian Mack, new media manager for Freeview, commented: "Freeview aims to offer the best subscription-free TV service possible and the upgrade of our Freeview HD TV Guide app underlines this. "We want as many of our viewers to be able to benefit from the new features, with the Android and tablet market opening doors to an even wider audience - as well as offering new features such as the personalised recommendations to new and existing users."
