We have an Android app!

We are live with our 1.0 version of Android App. You can download it from Google play store at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=in.apptvtain.ientertain. When you search in app store for ‘iEntertain’, it is not appearing and I am trying to understand why.

We had issues before this happened though. Our app was suspended based on Impersonation issues when we submitted as can be seen in the image below.

Suspended

I had to file an appeal for reinstatement of the app and Google got convinced that I am not impersonating anybody.

Please go ahead and install my app and see if you like it. Give feedback and we will try to improve. Many channels currently don’t get the schedule properly and even some classification of channels is incorrect in terms of language, genre, etc…
