MBC Group's Shahid app has reached the top slot on the Apple Store for Middle East and North Africa, within just one week of launch.

The application, which allows viewers to watch MBC content on their iPads, has become the most popular app for the region.

The Shahid app was launched after a strong response to MBC's TV catch-up service, Shahid.net, proved highly popular, reaching 63 million visits and 90 million video views for the year to date. Shahid.net offers content from MBC channels as well as other Arabic TV content.

The new app will also allow users to watch Shahid on the television sets via Apple AirPlay.
