We are pleased to announce that TVCatchup have been voted as the 'best app ever' in a poll run by Tap! The iPhone and iPad magazine.
The top 10, as chosen by readers and the public was:
1. TVCatchup (GZero)
2. Tweetbot (Tapbots)
3. 1Password Pro (AgileBits)
4. Jetpack Joyride (Halfbrick Studios)
5. Clear (Realmac Software)
6. Dropbox (Dropbox Inc)
7. TuneIn Radio (TuneIn)
8. Instagram (Burbn)
9. Hero Academy (Robot Entertainment)
10. Skype (Skype Communications)
Speaking on the reader choice, Christopher Phin, Editor of Tap! magazine, says:
“Celebrating something so apparently old-fashioned as broadcast television might seem odd for such hugely innovative devices as the iPhone and iPad, but it actually makes perfect sense. Not only is TVCatchup a well-made and reliable app, it’s also a great example of how, by just adding an app, your iOS device can completely transformed into a sketchbook, a sat-nav, a piano or, in this case, a television.
“There were no surprises in the 10 most popular apps; I use Tweetbot dozens of times a day, Clear is a beautiful, simple reimagining of the to-do list, and everyone at Tap! is still hopelessly, cripplingly addicted to Hero Academy.”
Bruce Pilley, spokesperson for TVCatchup, adds:
“Being voted as the ultimate app of all time is the greatest reward possible for so many people who have worked miracles to develop TV Catchup. It is even more encouraging to know that the vote has come from the informed and discerning readers of Tap!, who have been overwhelming in their support.
“It has been a long and challenging road for all of us at TV Catchup; we pioneered new technology to bring live TV to iPhones, Android, tablets and PCs, but we now know that we have a service that’s second to none. We won’t stop there, though. We will continue to listen to our marketplace and further develop TV Catchup to meet the needs of our valued users.”
