Sky+ Android app gets update with keyword search, on-demand listings and download-to-box

UK TV network Sky has updated its Android app to add keyword search, on-demand listings and the ability to tell your Sky+HD box to download a programme direct from the app (via Engadget).

The previous version allowed text searches on titles only; the new version allows searches on any field (for example, cast members) and partial searches, so you don’t have to get an exact match to find something. When you find something you want to watch, the app can tell your Sky box to download it, but only when your phone is connected to the same wifi network as the box.

You can download the free updated app from the Google Play store.
