Sky+ iPad app is now a remote control
Sky has released an update to its Sky+ iPad app allowing you to use the app as a remote control.
The update gives you complete control of your Sky+ box on your iPad, allowing you to view the EPG and manage and delete recordings without interrupting the picture on the screen.
The TV Guide has also been given a new look, with new genre tabs, improved search and navigation and an emphasis on a more intuitive user experience.
You will need to connect your Sky box to your internet connection - and have the new look Sky Guide on the box – while also having the iPad on the same network.
If you have multiple boxes in your home, we're reliably informed that you can switch between boxes, too, making for a nice multiroom Sky remote.
Further enhancements are planned for later in the year, including second screen viewing on the iPad app and the integration of social TV service Zeebox.
