TiVo did say it was coming. And now it has arrived… as TiVo’s iPad app has morphed into a universal app that now also supports the iPhone and iPod Touch. While I’ve enjoyed the rich and powerful iPad edition, I much prefer the smaller form factor of a smart phone to use as a virtual remote and for device management.
In addition to the new iOS platform, version 1.5 of the free TiVo app brings limited DVR management to Series 3 and TiVo HD owners along with the requisite and supported virtual remote. Also, it appears TiVo is shooting for some sort of halo effect by offering a new “guest mode” to allow non-TiVo subscribers to browse their local guide.
