tv24.co.uk was officially launched today. This is our new brand in the UK and with this web release we now cover both iPhone, Android and the web.
We want to challenge other TV listings web sites in the UK. We think users want great user experience, speed and simplicity. That’s what we tried to focus on with this new release.
We are proud to present our brand new app TV-Guide USA – now available on both iPhone and Android. It has been a lot more work than we expected to get this one out, but we are now happy to have a first version out in both Android Market and in App Store.
Many of our users have been waiting for a TV-Guide for the US-market. However, it required some extra effort to make this happen because of the huge amount of channel and program data that’s available in the US. TV-Guide USA supports over 12 000 channels and thousands of providers (Digital/Cable/OTA).
Please download the app and try it out for yourself. We will update the app regularly with more nice features and improvements.
Please also check our special web site for TV-Guide USA:
TV-Guide just broke top100 free iPhone apps in UK. Lets see how high we can go this time (and how fast!).
Updates: TV-Guide UK (free) is now:
Update Jan 30: Phew, ok… no more updates now (it was just fun while the number was getting smaller ). Just check the top100 free apps for TV-Guide, it’s there somewhere around spot 70-80.
Time to celebrate! Our free version of the TV-Guide UK was finally approved today in App Store.
We have got lots of wishes from our users to add new channels (especially the free view channels) so we are very happy today when we both got the free version approved and also introduced 20 new channels to the popular TV-Guide UK!
Go ahead and download it today – and enjoy the new channels – and it’s free!
Alan Harten at Mobile Wire writes about Jersey Productions and the TV-Guide UK application.
”Jersey Productions, a Swedish iPhone app development studio, has announced the launch of a new TV guide application for iPhone users in the UK.”.
Well, the rather long header says it all. In their latest issue, M3 Digital World magazine lists ”The 101 best apps for Android”… and we made it onto the top 10 in the entertainment category!
Thanks for the vote of confidence M3, we love you too.

Swedroid, one of the biggest Android sites in Sweden just posted a pretty extensive review of TV-Guide.
Read it in full here: http://www.swedroid.se/tv-guide-sweden
After keeping us waiting for a pretty long time, Apple finally accepted the UK version of TV-Guide into the App Store. For some reason only the paid version got accepted, the free version is still ”In Review”. I guess they are pretty busy over there.
The application is available at only £1.19 – a real bargain (if you ask us) considering how much time it will save you.
So… take a look at the TV-Guide product page, see the screenshots and the features, then head for iTunes and download the trial. Free version should be out *any day now* (have we heard this from iPhone developers before?).
The first review of TV-Guide UK for Android just got posted on Android App Review Source.
We won’t copy-paste it all, but some highlights were:
”Overall, this is app will save you lots of time searching to see what’s on TV.”
”If it was available [in the US; our note] I would personally purchase this app for sure.”
Finally we managed to find of a reliable provider of TV listings data for the UK and British Android users can now start enjoying what Germans and Swedes have had for almost a month now.
You can find the application by searching for TV-Guide UK in Android Market. As all TV-Guides by Jersey, it comes in two flavours: the free-but-ad-supported-version and the $1.99-version without any ads.
For those who haven’t been blessed with an Android device but want to see the app, here are some screenshots:
With Germans being one of the biggest buyers of Android phones in Europe (and one of the first to get support for paid applications) we decided that Germany was a good place to launch the TV-Guide.
Initial download numbers have been quite high and it looks like it will overtake TV-Guide Sweden within the next day or two. The Swedes still don’t have an Android phone on the market, so the comparison is maybe not 100% fair, but still – go Germany!
TV-Guide Sweden was today published in the Android Market. Interest is expected to be low at this point, since no phones based on Android have been launched in Sweden yet.
But… in spite of low download numbers, we are proud of a couple of things, three of which we’ll share now:
1) We are very happy with how the app turned out. We (and our initial users) think TV-Guide Sweden is great!
2) TV-Guide Sweden is the only TV listings application available for Android.
3) TV-Guide Sweden is one of the first swedish applications in the Market. There were maybe 5 or 6 others at the time of posting.
Anyway, we like Android so be on the lookout for more apps signed Jersey Productions in the market soon.
Oh and don’t forget to download the application (Search for TV-Guide Sweden in The Market), or at least take a look at the screenshots.
The first version of TV-Guide has been launched in the Swedish App Store.
So far the app has been very appreciated by the users and by the community, making its way onto the top 25 list in the second day of its existence.
Update: #1 on the top list! TV-Guide Swe is now the most downloaded application in Sweden!
