What's New in Version 4.3.4
Fixes crashes in 4.3.1
Good but buggy
Happy with the overall output but very frustrating that every single time that I use the app, any show that I watch from my downloads will cause the app to crash a few seconds in to the start of viewing. Also, there used to be a download % indicator to show how far away from completing your download you were. Where has this gone??? Very annoying when downloading a show and you have no idea how long it will take to compete the download. Please sort these points out but pleased with everything else.
Considering the vast sums of money Sky generate, this app is appalling and an insult in the face of the £90 per month we pay for Sky's services. I learned to live with the constant crashing before because generally once I loaded a program I could watch it without interruption. More recently it has become completely unusable and will not load at all. I try installing it again and it works very briefly before crashing once more. The process of downloading is also terrible you have to have the app open in order for a program to download and it will not download in the background. Really really disappointing.
Handy when you are out and about
I use this app everyday to watch sky content on my long commute to work and back. I like that I can watch live shows and catch up on my TV series. Download speeds seem to have improved recently - maybe something they have changed at their end.
Highly recommended if you are a sky subscriber.
