TiVo app for Android tablets launches

TiVo said back in January that it would be launching an app for Android tablet users to give them control over their DVRs and recordings. The company has had an app for iOS devices for a long time, and I bet a lot of Android tablet users have been waiting for their own version. That wait is over.

TiVo has officially launched its Android app, and it is available on Google Play right now to download. The app offers remote control functionality, a show guide, search, and programming/actor information. Users can also use the app to their storage and organize Season Pass recordings. Those recordings can be organized with drag-and-drop functionality.

The features of the app include the ability to call up information about a show and see all the relevant details for the program at a glance. You can explore the show cast, crew, and see what online partners have the show. Actor information is also available via the app, and you can view your My Shows list. The app is compatible with TiVo Series 3, HD, and HD XL DVRs.
