TiVo for Android

TiVo has finally released an official Android app which you can use as a remote control for your TiVo digital video recorder. In fact, the remote control function actually looks like a TiVo remote. But that’s just one of the things you can do with the free app.

You can also browse a 14-day program guide, schedule and manage recordings, view cast and crew information, and comment about shows on Facebook or Twitter.

The app also lets you search for on-demand content from Netflix, Amazon Instant Video or Blockbuster.

While the TiVo app is optimized for smartphones and tablets with 7 inch displays, it should run on any device with Android 2.1 or newer.

The new app looks an awful lot like the TiVo app for iOS which was released in July, 2012.

  1. New TIVO app is much better than I expected. It has a cool gesture only section where you can use two fingers to the right for the 30 sec skip forward feature. The only thing missing is an ability to directly watch your recorded TIVO shows.
