Sky has unveiled an update to the Sky+ app for iPad which allows Sky TV customers to use their iPad as a remote control.
Sky customers can also now manage their planner through the iPad app, allowing them to add and delete recordings they have stored on their Sky+HD set-top box while watching TV.
Other key features of the enhanced app include a redesigned TV Guide, with new genre tabs, and improved search and navigation.
Further enhancements to the Sky+ app due later this year include the integration of second screen functionality powered by zeebox, including twitter feeds and bonus second screen experiences created specifically around Sky content.
Luke Bradley Jones, Brand Director, TV Products, said: "The Sky+ app has proved hugely popular, with millions of Sky customers embracing the convenience of being able to set recordings of their favourite shows while they are on the move.
"Today's update marks a major step forward in using mobile apps to make the Sky TV experience even better, and it's just the start, as we'll be following it up with a series of further enhancements later this year."
