      Gingerbread is by far the most popular.

      I posted earlier in the thread that only 7.1% of Android users actually have version 4.0.x (Ice Cream Sandwich), compared to 65% using version 2.3.x (Gingerbread). Those were the numbers for June.

      As of 2nd July, it is now 10.9% for ICS and 64% for Gingerbread: https://developer.android.com/about/...rds/index.html

      Nobody argues with those figures. Of course Gingerbread is still the predominant OS! My own phone (Desire HD) won't even receive its official update to 4.0 until sometime next month.

      The point is Sky is infuriating its customers who are updating their devices or taking updates and finding they can no longer get the service. The Sky developers really need to keep up - especially now if they expect to be attracting new tech-savvy customers to their NOW-TV service.

      Tech Savy people are surely not the demographic that will use NOWTV. Marketing is a very important part of a business and its the market research that dictates where investment is made and what priority is given to development. Why invest in new tech when it's not the prevelant tech used by its target customer base?

      Yes, I'm sure it's infuriated people but has it infuriated most? It's also well known for tech savy people that if you adopt a new software then there's a chance that your existing addons will cease to work while companies play catch up.

      A good example of this is browsers.

      You would be surprised how many people are still using IE6 and visit this site.

      Short of us paying extra for us to get the site to render just for these users, there is not a lot we can do. If you are reading this on IE6 then perhaps an upgrade to at least 8 or 9 would be beneficial.

      No - not most. Of course not most! What a daft thing to say. What do you think Sky is - a democracy or something ? For sure, as a long standing, 13-year top tier customer, I am infuriated. I have been thinking about trimming my TV package (to pay for my fibre ) and now most certainly will.

      Do you really think Sky couldn't care less if they lose custom from people upgrading their phones and getting into non-Apple tablets?

      I just think they got the whole approach totally wrong and for some reason are still being a lot less than open about any of it! This great song and dance over how hard it is to support Android has made them look totally foolish. Can you see any other supplier of media content to mobile devices failing in this way? To listen to their arguments it's like they are the only company in the world who have ever had to negotiate with content providers!

      It is now over 12 months since Sky Go was released. Here we are finally with an ICS update but there is still no support for any of this year's HTC devices or any android tablets at all! Yes, we've heard why - too hard to disable HDMI-out. And yet you can register any tin-pot laptop or netbook to receive the service - no questions asked! It is this total lack of consistency that annoys me more even than getting the app on my Transformer Prime!

      As for expecting to wait for companies to catch up with new tech, well I really wouldn't mind at all having to wait for my update so long as I knew it is on the way!

      Re: Sky Go Outrage!

      SkyGo will connect and play via wifi but not without it. I get an error, "3g network usage is disabled Go to Menu Settings Network Preferences to enable streaming on 3g" Can anyone point me in the right direction on a Samsung Galaxy S2 please.
