For those of you who use TiVo, you should be happy to know that iPhone and Android apps are reportedly on the way. Get ready for a Season Pass in the palm of your hands.
According to a leaked ad in a new issue of CEPro:
One of the biggest trends to sweep through the consumer electronics industry is the adoption of software delivered through Apple’s iTunes App Store. For TiVo owners, the California-based company developed control and management apps for the iPad and (soon) the iPhone and Android OS products. Williams says that TiVo approached the development of its control apps with the goal of making it easy for users to maximize the power of its products and extend the TiVo experience to a “second screen.”
The TiVo iPhone, Android apps make a lot of sense because convergence means that the differences between screens is rapidly blurring. With Hulu, Xfinity, Time Warner Cable and DirecTV apps, it’s super easy to get your TV on the go.
