A great new update to the YouView iOS App is now available (App version number 2.1.6)

There will be a number of new features included with the update:

1) Support for the latest Apple iOS 7 operating system.

2) Improvements to the search functions:

• Search results are separated by date to make it easier to navigate through a large number of results.
• Channel search suggestions are presented in the same order as on the TV guide.

3) When using your device in landscape Guide and Now & Next views show more of the channel name to make it easier to identify individual channels.

4) Future features: This app will also support features which will be released in due course to the YouView box:

• Internet Channel support – When connected to a YouView box which allows Internet Channels to be recorded, the YouView App will allow you to send remote record requests for programmes on these Internet Channels.
• Hidden Channels- channels you have hidden on your YouView set top box will no longer be presented in the YouView App.
Availability:

The YouView App is supported on Apple devices running iOS6 and iOS7 and is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad (first generation iPad is not supported).

In some instances it can take up to 24 hours for the app to go live on the store. For more information on the new features you can find the release information here http://support.youview.com/articles/S....

The YouView App is compatible with all YouView set-top boxes and is free, but mobile network and/or Wi-Fi charges may apply. The terms and conditions of using the app can be found directly via the app menu, or on the YouView website at http://www.youview.com/terms-conditio....

    Why o why does it need to reload program data so soon after scrolling around?

    Take a look at the BBC radio app. The way the schedule shuttles the program details along the timeline (landscape mode). Much better.

    *Update- A maintenance update has been released for the YouView iOS App (App version number 2.1.7)

    The app update fixes an issue where channel names were presented incorrectly for the new CBBC HD and BBC THREE HD channels. Please note this issue does not affect the YouView Android app.

    In some instances it can take up to 24 hours for the app to go live on the store.
