In the relatively short time that I have been looking at the IceTV iPhone app I have only ever seen one recommendation per day. I was under the impression, perhaps erroneously, that with the Android app, the recommendations reflected what had been distributed on the most recent "what's on" emails.

What should I expect to see, and is there some way to tweak the iPhone app to show more than one recommendation for each day?

The Android app generally shows exactly what's in the most recent IcePicks email, with, in my experience, few exceptions.

I don't use the iPhone/iPad app.

Thanks for the confirmation about the Android app. I would like to the same in the iPhone app.

Hi there raymondjpg,

Many thanks for your message about Recommendations for the iPhone app. I have checked my app this morning and the recommendations are there. We had an issue with them yesterday morning and it was corrected by midday.

Cheers,

I don't know why I can't see them all. I just reset the application, reloaded the  data, and all I can see when I hit the recommendations button is "Behind the sash". Like I said before, I only ever see one recommendation a day, although it does at least change day by day. I can't see anything in the app settings that either limits recommendations to one per day, or opts to show all of what's in the most recent IcePicks email. Do I need to lodge a support ticket?

Edit: User error!I was swiping down not across. Not my finest hour, but I excuse myself for being an app and smart phone fiddling hater.  It does come in handy for whiling away the time in doctors' waiting rooms and annoying people just as much as their fiddling annoys me.

Are you scrolling the day to the right to get to the next ones?

Thanks I just worked it out (see my edit above). I'm not a believer in smart phones and apps, so have persistently refused to learn how to use them until recently.
