DMAX, the German men's channel operated by Discovery Communications, has launched a free-of-charge app for the iPhone and iPad. The application, which can be downloaded on Apple's App Store, contains programme details, videos accompanying TV shows, "behind the scenes" material and a picture gallery. If viewers like a video, they can share it with their friends on Facebook or Twitter. A special feature is the reminder function: DMAX fans can set an alarm to remind them to switch on the TV set 5 minutes before their favourite TV series starts. The offering, which was developed by US company Phunware, will gradually be expanded by adding new features.
