While there is no release date just yet, Comcast announced its plans today to bring a DVR application to Android. The iOS devices were already greeted with a DVR app earlier this year, but it is nice to see Android get some more lovin' from the likes of those corporate types. With a Comcast app, you will be able to set your DVR remotely, as well as forward your home calls to your phone and receive push notifications when you receive home voicemails. Check out Comcast's blog entry:
There you have it. So, anyone eagerly waiting for this app? I know it's been a long time coming.Finally, we have introduced a mobile app that runs on the iPhone and iPod Touch and we’ve blogged about that here. While one of the most popular features of this app is the ability to remotely control your DVR so you can record your favorite shows on the go, it also provides a number of other very useful phone features. My favorite is the ability to auto-forward calls to your home phone directly to your mobile device. In this way, if you’re at the beach or out of town, you’ll never miss a call. You can also receive “push” notifications that someone has left you a voicemail at home and you can check and listen to your home voicemail via the app. We hope to make the app work on as many different devices as possible, including Blackberry and Android.
