Most apps should work just fine on new versions of Android. That is, if you have a forgiving definition of the words "most" and "just fine." Sky PLC's Sky Go streaming app for the United Kingdom and Ireland was one of a few that ceased to function on devices that came with Lollipop or received a subsequent software update. The latest version of Sky Go works with Android 5.0, at least according to the "What's New" text for version 4.1.2.
Hey, Sky? You do know that the same Google Play Store listing can be used for both smartphone and tablet versions of an app, right? No? You're still going with separate smartphone and tablet apps, like it's 2010? Okay then. The Sky Go tablet app has the same basic features of the smartphone app, but it's restricted to 7" or larger tablets running Android 4.0 or later.
Kidding aside, the feature set of the Sky Go app is pretty admirable, with live TV and streaming TV on demand.
Sky Go, a service which allows Sky TV customers to watch live and archived content on the go, has been available in the browser and on iOS devices for 7 months now, and according to Holly Knill, the head of Sky Go, it's finally coming to Android devices next month as well.
Customers running "a selection of Android smartphones starting with Samsung Galaxy and HTC handsets" will be the first to have the opportunity to test the new Sky Go app, but there is no mention of support for any other devices in Sky's post just yet.
