Sky Movies app coming to iPhone 4S and iPad 2

Sky launches Flipboard style companion for Sky Movies

With Sky Go boasting nearly 1.6m users in the UK it seemed logical, if not inevitable for Sky to start releasing apps under the same umbrella, while not a competitor the Movies app is more a companion

Sky has announced the launch of the Sky Movies app for iOS 5 which is designed as the ultimate companion for Sky customers with Sky Movies.

The app shows not only all the films that are playing on Sky at the moment but also shows any films that are being shown in the cinema as well. Featuring a simple UI with large images it has a feeling of navigation that’s not unlike browsing an iPad magazine, with Sky aiming to make the app as easy to use as possible.

While you can use the app to record any movies being shown on Sky you can also use it to browse any films available for Sky Go then simply press play and the app will switch over to Sky Go and play the film.

Launching next week this is is just one stage in some major changes that Sky are promising to deliver to customers with increased content and more apps surely being at the top of the list.
