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 $?

Should be easy to put a link up in this thread once it's up. No idea about DirecTV's site.

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?

Very well done (as usual). I hope they port this over to other phone platforms as well. (Android, Windows Moble).

The interface is great for the casual user and miles ahead of the web based version.

So true ... now if collectively we can convince DIRECTV to make m.directv.com a little more robust, they could make ALL mobile uses happy! :)

So this is just a very nice interface to the mobile scheduler. That's what I figured, I'm not so sad I got rid of my iPhone anymore. :)


It's more than just an interface to the mobile scheduler and has more features than the mobile scheduler.

True ... I think people really need to read the First Look to appreciate the differences between the features in the iPhone app and the normal web scheduler. There IS a difference...

I read the first look, and I didn't notice any difference in actual functionality...


Well let's see...

1. You can set a recording on more than one DVR at a time.
2. You can browse by date & time.
3. You can browse by channel
4. There are the showcards
5. More information about the show [Original Air Date, longer descriptions, etc]
6. Search results are sorted and put into folders for ease of use

And that's just naming the big ones...

I'm confused... you mean they should READ the info on the app BEFORE commenting on it????
