There's a fresher look along with some bug fixes but the real main draw of the updated release are the new devices added to the compatibility list; HTC One Mini, Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, Sony Xperia SP and the new Google Nexus 7 tablet (2013).
You may not realise, but unlike the one-app-fits-all approach from the likes of Netflix, Sky custom creates the app ONLY for certain devices. Also, it does not work on rooted devices and any OS upgrade usually scuppers the app until a fix is released. As you can imagine, this approach has caused much frustration for users.
But in a surprise (and welcome) move, Sky have released this updated version of the app virtually on the Nexus 7 2013 release date. We can only hope Sky continue down this proactive road.
The full compatibility list now reads:
Google: Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4
HTC: Desire, Desire S, Desire X, Desire HD, Incredible S, Sensation, Sensation XE, One, One Mini, One X, One XL, One S, One V and One X+
LG: LG Optimus 4X HD
Samsung: Galaxy S, Galaxy S2, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S3 LTE, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3 Mini, Galaxy S4 Mini, Galaxy Ace2, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note2 and Galaxy Note2 LTE
Sony: Xperia S, Xperia T, Xperia Z, Xperia SP
Motorola: Motorola RAZRi, RAZR HD
Google: Nexus 7, Nexus 7 (2013)
Samsung: Galaxy Tab2 7.0, Galaxy Tab3 7.0
