DIRECTV does it again! The all new redesigned app for iPad 2.0 expected to be available today in the app store! This is the first in a series of redesigns for all of DIRECTV's apps. The 2009-style backgrounds are all gone, replaced by a slick, Android-like interface with a slide-out menu. You'll like the fact that they added filtering to almost every part of the app. Take a look at the the top right -- you can filter by all programs, or those programs that can be watched on the tablet, or on TV. Tapping once on an item brings a flyout that lets you watch and record easily. The app's screens have been redesigned so it's really easy to see where a program is available (on TV, tablet, etc) and there's a nice big "Watch" and "Record" button. If you're worried that the remote would be taken away... don't. it's there and just as good as ever.
