TiVo updates remote app for iOS, adds new layout

updated 07:15 pm EDT, Tue March 20, 2012

Wish lists, remote management, more

TiVo have updated its eponymous remote-management app for iOS to provide a new look for browsing, making it easier for users to discover and learn about new TV shows or movies. New categories have been added, such as "4 Star Movies This Week" and "2012 Academy Award Winners." The update also let users make more changes to Series4 and Series3 DVRs remotely, and adds the ability to create a wishlist along with other improvements.

Version 1.9 includes new high-resolution (Retina) graphics for the iPhone version, new "collapsible" folders and a new full-screen browse mode in the iPad version, and a new "Keep Until I Delete" option for My Shows. The app also gains lots of little management fixes, including notations that make it easier to identify which shows are new, the ability change recording options from the To Do list, a prompt to extend the "stop" time on recordings of live events, create wishlists for shows that are not currently airing, and makes Away mode more resilient against network drops.

The app also adds My Shows, To Do, and Season Pass manager capability to Series4 DVRs, and adds To Do and Season Pass management to Series3 DVRs. Version 1.9 also improves the Facebook and Twitter login processes, keeps background music playing when using the app, and adds recording options for shows set to record in the To Do list.

The company says it is working on an Android tablet version, which should debut sometime this spring. The changes made to the iOS app will be passed onto the Android app sometime during the summer.
