Sky released an update for the Sky+ app today adding an interesting new feature. You can now send photos stored on your tablet or phone to the TV via the Sky+ HD box. Both the Android and the iOS version have the feature and it makes for a nice easy way to get your photos onto the big screen. Other changes in the app include an update home page that replicates what is on your Sky+ HD box, an easy way to select HD formats of on demand content and improved accessibly voice over support.
What would be good if Sky enables streaming of content stored on the Sky+ box to a tablet running the Sky+ app.
The iOS app is available from the iTunes Store and you can find the updated Android app in the Google Play Store.
