SlingPlayer just launched an update for their Android application that brings some pretty slick new features that should make their users quite happy. The main feature of this update is higher quality viewing for 4.x+ devices. Not long ago, they launched HQ mode, and this update makes HQ mode look even better on the latest Android devices.

Another feature added to this update is the addition of an electronic program guide. This should make it easier for users to find the shows that interests them. It looks pretty slick and easy to navigate.

This update also adds the ability to set reminders directly from the newly added program guide. To use this feature users will need to long-press a future program and the reminder will be added for them. This new feature should come in handy for users who have a hard time remembering to watch their favorite shows.

This update also brings some minor changes to the look and feel of the app. Early user reports are mixed on the update. Some user reviews are claiming it is the best thing since sliced bread, and others do not seem nearly as thrilled. The price of the app has not changed and is still $29.99. Interested users can snag it from Google Play.
