Cable TV giant Comcast already offers a mobile app that lets iPhone and iPod touch users view program guides and remotely schedule recordings on their DVR. Now the company reprots that it’s also working on versions for Blackberry and Android devices.
There’s no word on the launch date, but the new versions will likely be free for existing Comcast users.
While the DVR remote scheduling function is probably one of the coolest features of the Comcast mobile app, it has other features that come into play if you’re a Comcast Digital Voice or internet subscriber. For instance, you can listen to voicemail and view phone call logs, or forward your home phone calls to your mobile phone.
The app also lets you watch movie trailers.
