If you still rely on your TiVo more than your new AppleTV for watching television, TiVo’s soon to come out with a new app that will make it even easier to use their service from a supine position on your couch, using an iPad as an advanced remote control.
On Monday, TiVo announced the forthcoming arrival of a new app that will allow you to control most of the features of your TiVo service from the iPad, without ever having to drag up an obscuring menu over the program you’re watching.
From TiVo’s new remote control app, you’ll be able to browse TiVo’s program guide, set-up programs to record, remote control your TiVo unit, browse your library of recorded content and even search broadcast, cable and even Netflix for content you might want to be able to see.
You can also use the new TiVo app to make sure you don’t miss any of your favorite movies or shows while you’re away from home, as well as to check out detailed information about the cast and crew of any content you’re watching or have recorded.
This looks like some great software for the die-hard TiVo warrior, but unfortunately, there’s no exact release date being mentioned yet, with TiVo’s only promise that they’ll be crowing loudly once the app is finally available on the App Store.
