A review of mass market mobile apps

Plan your Xmas TV on your mobile

Posted by Admin on December 17, 2008

If you fall into the category of people highlighted by the Venn diagram below then British company Vizimo has got a great solution for you.


Vizimo has developed a new application for mobile phones called Tioti TV that allows you to plan your TV viewing schedule, across all the different channels available, on your mobile phone. The software displays programme schedules for the week ahead, so you can go through it choosing the programmes you want to watch. When you’re done, you can choose the ‘My TV’ – and the software produces your own, personalised viewing guide, telling you which channel you need to be watching and at what time.

Simon Steward, CEO of Vizimo is pretty pleased with himself: “It sounds quite clever, and of course it is. What it means for everyone is something very simple: we don’t need to worry about what we chose to watch at 8.30pm from the choice of umpteen channels, and we don’t need to worry about missing something we wanted to see, because it’s all worked out and remembered for us.”

But fair play to him, it is pretty cool.

If you’re an iPhone or iPod touch user you can download the application, named Tioti TV+, from the App Store for £1.79. And you can even programme your Sky+ box to record specific shows from your phone. Other phone users can download from their mobile by visiting
