Thanks to an ad run in CE Pro, we knew TiVo had Android and iPhone software in the pipeline. And a variant of their Android app has now been released… in the UK. Unlike TiVo’s rich and powerful iPad app, the Android experience being made available to Virgin Media TiVo subscribers is significantly pared down – merely featuring a guide, with the ability to record individual episodes or schedule a Season Pass. The free app, available via the Android Market, also features Virgin’s red theme and minimal TiVo branding. So it’s safe to assume this won’t be exactly what makes its way to TiVo Premiere customers here in the US. However, beyond cosmetic changes, I’d hope for somewhat more robust functionality – including the ability to manage recordings and a virtual remote. But, perhaps that’ll have to wait until v1.5.
