With Sky TV pretty reluctant to support Windows Phone there is a distinct need for a 3rd party solution to access all the remote features of modern Sky + DVR boxes popular in UK.
TV Guide+ by Topperware is a free app which seems to bring some of the functionality of Sky’s Remote Control app to Windows Phone.
The app will download and cache a full 7 days of TV listings from the service, and allows users to sign in using their Sky ID and set a program to Remote Record or Series Record.
Of course this is still pretty far away from the official Sky app, which lets you actually replace your Sky remote with your phone and watch some programs streaming to your phone, but it is likely the best we can ask for at the moment from a 3rd party app.
Find the app in the Windows Phone Store here.
