    About App Permissions:
    This application asks for BBM and Calendar permissions. It connects to BBM to allow you to invite others to download, and Calendar permissions are needed so you can set calendar reminders from the schedule.

    I bought this app and really love it - thank you! However, I have searched and searched around and can't seem to find where or how the calendar reminder function works. I noticed one of the raters in BB World commented about this function, so I assume it's working, at least for some people. Also, when I go into the schedule, most of the shows listed aren't shows I am "following" or have marked as favorites...and the schedule time doesn't begin until evening time. Is there a way to fix this so the schedule can cover all times of the day and night, and only list shows I'm following so I can see when they're on? Other than these issues, it's great! Love the blog/news page!

    Very cool! I see it's now available in BlackBerry World, so add a link directly to it! I also see that you have three reviews and each one is giving you 5 stars, so unless those are three friends of yours, it must be pretty darn good (haha).

    Well, I don't have cable and can't remember the last time I watched TV, but thanks for posting your debut app here. And good luck with what looks like an awesome app! Have a great day!
    BB then, now, forever!

    Thanks for the feedback, glad you like it!

    To add a calendar reminder simply "long press" an item in the schedule and a context menu will pop up where you can add the reminder, etc..

    The schedule itself is pulled from the TV Rage API so unfortunately that is all that's available, but I'm adding in the ability to select the country for the schedule in the next update.

    'What's On?' update to v1.0.1.2 was approved last night!

    Here's the changelog:


    • Removed tabs from the main action bar.
    • Moved news feeds refresh button to the action bar and removed from the overflow menu.
    • Added search button to the "my shows" action bar.
    • Added setting to select the schedule country.
    • Added dialog to ask for schedule calendar reminder minutes.
    • Added confirmation dialog when deleting shows from "my shows".
    • Added share target picker in the main app menu.
    • Changed schedule item click action, now shows quick info screen instead of searching for show.


    All feedback, requests and suggestions welcome.
