Allows channel, DVR control

Verizon has launched FiOS Mobile for the iPad. The app is a effectively an elaborate remote control for FiOS subscribers, on a basic level letting people change channels, adjust settings or pause, rewind or fast-forward material. People can also browse schedules and video-on-demand listings however, and set DVRs to record individual episodes or an entire series.

The app is a free download, but users must have a FiOS router and a set-top with a compatible featureset to take full advantage. An HD-capable set-top, for example, is required for direct remote control functions. Any version of the iPad firmware is supported.

Verizon says it is planning to add more options to FiOS Mobile "over the next few months." One of these is described as "photo flicking," allowing people to "flick" images from an iPad to a TV. At some point in early 2011 people will be able stream live FiOS TV to an iPad, though whether this will be integrated into the current app is unmentioned.
