BuddyTV Launches Latest iPhone TV Guide App with New Search, Grid, and Quicklist Functionality

Seattle, WA, Nov 28, 2012 ( via COMTEX) -- BuddyTV, the leader in TV discovery, announced today that the newest version of their app, version 2.7, is available for the general public. The popular BuddyTV Guide app now features new search, grid, and quicklist functionality.

"This release makes it easy to replace the old cable TV guide," said Andy Liu, CEO and co-founder of BuddyTV. "Searching for your favorite programs, favoriting channels, filtering by genre, and summary views for quicklists makes finding great TV fast and easy." Search is one of the primary ways users find their favorite programming. Whether it's on the advice of a friend or a commercial, searching for the show makes it easy for the user to discover when the show is on and add it to their watchlist so they'll be reminded when it is on. BuddyTV's proprietary search engine leverages its TV expertise to produce the most relevant results based on the users' search query.

The TV grid includes several unique features to help users find great TV content quickly. Favoriting channels allows users to see only the channels they want to see. The filter allows users to filter based on their mood and what genre they want to view. The date and time selector allows the users to quickly surf through all the content. With a simple flick of the finger, the user can see schedule data for several channels. Compared to the old remote and old guide, this grid significantly improves the speed of finding TV content.

The new quicklist functionality found on the homepage provides summary information including what's playing now and how many items are in the quicklist. Quicklists are an innovative way for users to discover content based on useful groupings of programs. Quicklists include the Watchlist, Most Popular, Live Sports, The Holiday Guide, among others.

BuddyTV is the #1 TV discovery app in the world. Users use BuddyTV Guide before watching TV to discover the best content to enjoy watching. The BuddyTV Guide 2.7 app is available for free in the app store on iTunes. To learn more, visit the BuddyTV Guide website for more details.
