Great news for iPad owners in the UK today as Channel 4 launches its â€œ4oD Catch Upâ€ iPad app. The app has quickly shot to the top of the Free Apps chart in the UK iPad app store, and joins the BBCâ€™s iPlayer iPad app as the only other on-demand TV app in the UK. According to Tech Radar, the app is initially sponsored by Heineken, and is therefore free to download, but for a limited time only. The app appears to be almost identical to the online and PSN versions, and features a selection of shows from Channel 4, E4 and More4. Unfortunately the app excludes archive shows, and, annoyingly, shows from the US, which explains why I couldnâ€™t find The Event or Brothers and Sisters on there. Boo! Channel 4 says that it is working on getting the archive programmes onto the app soon, so hopefully we might one day see the US shows on there too. As some Channel 4 shows can be a little racy to say the least, parents will be glad to know that the app has a parental control feature where you can set one of two PIN levels to prevent the viewing of all 16+ rated content or all 18+ rated content, or both.
