Will provide control, program guides
The official TiVo iPad app should be at the App Store by the end of January, the company has announced via Twitter. Although not providing more details on the matter, it also adds that the prospect of Android and iPhone apps is being investigated. The iPad app will require a connection to the same network as a TiVo set-top.
Though primarily intended to handle DVR functions, the app will also serve other purposes. Users will for instance be able to browse program guides, or substitute an iPad for a TiVo's normal remote control. In that respect it may closely mirror Verizon's FiOS Mobile app.
