[Apps] Shahid for iPad

July 23, 2012  |  Apple, Apps, iPad

Yesterday as I was browsing Shahid.NET to catch the latest episode of “Kannat Al Sham” and “Saher Al Lail 3” I noticed a little mark that said something along the lines try our new iOS application.  I was surprised and later that evening before going to bed I downloaded the FREE app.

It’s simply a cool app which allows you to access Shahid.Net’s database of TV Shows/Episodes whether they aired on MBC4 or MBC1 they’re there.  Ramadan Shows along with English Shows.  All you would have to do is select which program you’d like to watch and you can watch it immediately.  Currently for Ramadan they are uploading the episodes as soon as they air (let’s give it an hour or so after it airs the episode is available) and you can watch it with little interruptions.  The awesome feature of the app is that if you have an Apple TV (read: Swera) you can immediately send the show you are watching to ‘AirPlay’ on your big screen.  It’s clear enough and depending on how fast your internet is, you can easily enjoy your time with it.

One of my pet peeves with the app is the fact that it only functions on Wi-Fi and sometimes can experience some crashing.  Otherwise it’s a great one out there.  If you remembered my earlier post as to where to watch your Ramadan Shows, Shahid.Net was an option there now there is an app to further help it out. To find out what shows are currently available on the app regarding the Ramadan series here is a list I have compiled:

  • “Omar”
  • “Ferqat Najy 3a6allah”
  • “7alaft 3omry”
  • “Saher Al Lail 3”
  • “Kannat Al Sham o Kanayen Al Shamiya”
  • “7eber El 3eyon”
  • “Wi-Fi”
  • “Al Khawaja Abdulqader”
  • “6aish 3eyal”
  • “Ya Hala Eb Shooj Weyana”
  • “Banat Al 3eela”
  • “7ekayat Banat”
  • “Khawa6er 8”
  • “Al Mesageyel 2”
  • “Ma3a Sebq El Esraar”
  • “6areq o Hayona”
Along with other US shows and previous ones as well.

  1. That’s fantastic !!

  2. Im impressed that they are coming out with all these Apps and the shows airing for free and the apps are for free which is pretty cool!

  3. that app is really useful!! easier access to episodes!

  4. whats frustrating about this app is the ads that interrupts the tv shows every now then! wish they would keep them only at the beginning o khala9!

    • But the reason why it’s free is because of the ads, the ads are what make them not ask you to pay for it, although I don’t know why they don’t offer a paid version ad-free.

      On the computer it’s great!
