Ratings and Reviews
First time having this App was a drama as I was on a different WiFi plan and so couldn’t pick up the guide well being out in the lounge so I deleted it. Since then I have got faster better Internet plan and range must be good cause I can get the guide with no problems and am able to book program viewing and this works with my calendar. Alarm reminds me on my iPhone when programming is about to start. Love the layout of this Freeview App they have designed it well. Happy I can now see what is on for the week and don’t miss my favourite shows.
Before I downloaded the app I read previous reviews. Consequently I was not expecting a fantastic app. But what a pleasant surprise. I have none of the problems mentioned by some other reviewers. It downloads fast. I never get connection problems. The search function is good. The layout is clear. I am very pleased with this app and can recommend it.
Good but needs more
This app still does not allow for downloading and storing data for offline viewing!
Also needs the ability to either zoom in as some shorter progs are just two parallel lines. You cannot tell what the prog title is.
Being able to select a channel listed on the left side which then shows a text version of the lineup would help as well.
Shows the relevant data but long titles do get shorten so you cant make out what its saying. You can tap on the programme to see more as well as adding an alarm to the ipad calendar.
One thing that it needs is the ability to save data for offline viewing
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
