    Am I missing something or does the Directv app on Android not offer the remote functions the same as the ipad does ? What I am wanting is to be able to change channels from my android phone or possibly a tablet if possible ?

    The DirecTV Android app went from 11MB to almost 20 Megabytes! And you can't move it to your SD card either. Plus, most of the streaming video didn't work on my phone so I dumped it.

    Instead, I happened to discover an old mobile URL that still allows me to set my DVR's using my phone's internal browser. It's such an old link it recommends you download the NEW BLACKBERRY APP!! :D

    But it still works!! In fact, I used it earlier today to set my R22 to record "COPS" since I was too lazy to walk in the other room and turn on the TV. ;)

    I think we are discussing two different types of apps, one type being remote control apps created by independent developers, and the other being the official DIRECTV app by Directv.
    ThomasM, If your referring to the "official" Directv app for Android it is only 9.49 megabytes. I have it and use it all the time to set recordings on my dvrs and watch streaming. I don't have a clue what app you're referring to that takes up so much space.

    I have a SGII.
    You might want to try one of two (or both), clear cache/data, or uninstall and reinstall.

    If you look at the screenshot I posted, there's only 160 kb of data and no cache. That's not going to reduce the size significantly.

    Them you might want to un-re install. I don't get how there would be such a great difference in size due to phone type.

    Me either, but ThomasM saw a similar size.

    I have an HTC Incredible 4G. Nothing stands out as being dramatically different between the two phones. Is the SGII on ICS?

    On my Galaxy S3, the official DIRECTV app is a little over 20 MB, virtually all of which is the app itself. On the other hand, the 3rd part remote app that I have, which works quite well, is only about 250 KB.

    No need to apologize.....this thread is covering many topics. Easy to get lost. It took me a bit to figure out exactly what app the OP was referring to. :confused:
