Same here. As much as I'd love to get an iPhone, I will NOT switch to AT&T under ANY circumstances.

Back to topic, nice write up! :)


Impressive review guys... nice job.

As for AT&T, I've been saying the same thing since the iPhone came out. But, after a traumatic switch about 4 months ago I've had to eat a few of my words re AT&T. Even here in the boonies, it's mostly 3G and absolutely no complaints so far.

You guys did a wonderful job. I think DirecTV and Apple should pay you all some royalties. Your work is bound to help increase sales. Keep it up.

I'll be grabbing this for my Touch. I've been a Verizon customer forever and have no interest in switching to AT&T, so my iPod Touch makes me a very happy person. The Apps, especially, are amazing. Looking forward to this one. Thanks for the heads-up because I didn't know about it. Cool.

Now I can justify the ipod touch I purchased this week


You will never regret buying it, I promise. Go crazy in the App Store.

I hope they'll come up with an app for WM6.1 because this device is what I'm sticking to. Never liked the iPhone operating system and stuff.


+ 6.1 (lol, get it?)

great job guys !!

I got iPhones to test AT&T last month (probably the week the selection closed) after being a Verizon customer since '84 or so when they weren't Verizon and cell phones were big as a lunch box (and weren't called cell phones!)

It's been a very positive conversion and I'll be dumping our Verizon contract in a couple of weeks as it expires.

Looking forward to adding this app tommorow!

Good job guys!

Since it costs 1.66¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 3.32¢ worth.  That 3.32¢ is my own and not the 3.32¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

A little idea on using the iPhone.....I bought mine, used, on eBay (2G model), never intended to use it as a phone (wi-fi only), and it works nicely with all compatible apps that way. No need to be an AT&T customer.

I assume just a search for 'Directv' at the App Store will produce the app when it's ready?

Free or $?

To download you just need to go into the App Store from your iPhone or in iTunes and search for "DirecTV" and I'm sure it'll pop right up.

Unless you're referring to a DirecTV page describing the app?
