ATT U Verse iPhone App
After days of silence on its presence, AT&T today formally launched its Mobile Remote Access app for the iPhone and iPod touch. The free software gives subscribers to the carrier's U-verse IPTV service control over their DVR units, including queuing up future recordings based on the TV schedule as well as deleting shows that are already stored on the set-top box. It can filter to only show favorites or HD content and can find shows based on metadata like an actor's name.
The software needs an existing U-verse subscription to work but is accessible over both 2G and 3G cellular connections as well as Wi-Fi. It currently only requires iPhone 2.2.1 or later.
