Naspers has so far been pretty quick with releasing great mobile apps to support their ever expanding empire – their News24 app is a popular app on many SA iPhones, and their recently released Supersport iPad app is a pretty great addition to any couch potato’s sports watching session. If you are already someone who watches TV with your tablet on at the same time, the new DStv guide app should prove useful.
The latest DStv guide app is now available on iPad, and it makes a lot more sense than the previous iPhone one. It uses the extra screen estate of the tablet perfectly, and the interface is exemplary to other SA app developers. It is pretty feature rich, and it serves as a great replacement for the paper based DStv guide:

The 10-day TV Guide displays in both grid and list views giving users easy access to the information they are looking for. The guide feature provides users with greater control by allowing them to sort channels according to country, genre, DStv bouquet or selected favourite channels. The DStv iPad app also allows users to set reminders for any show, movie, or sport event

 This app provides the latest entertainment news, keeping users abreast of local and international stories as well as news from DStv and its host of exciting TV channels. It also displays the latest TV highlights, making viewing planning for DStv subscribers so much simpler.

If there was one thing we could have asked for is better integration with PVR. While we realize it would require a big system revision, this app would be even better if I could set which shows / events to record right on the iPad, instead of only reminding us. Maybe in a future release?
