Comcast Joins in with a DVR Scheduling iPhone App

Posted Fri Mar 5, 2010 at 11:00 AM PST by Mike Attebery

The new app from Comcast allows remote scheduling of your DVR from anywhere you can use an iPhone.

Not to be left out of the iPhone app party, Comcast has launched Comcast Mobile. It’s a free app, and it works with more than just your DVR, even though that might be the most attractive feature.

You can access your email, check your visual voice mail, sync your address book. and watch trailers. But let’s face it, the DVR scheduling it the only real reason to pick this up.

It may have a bit of a limited use. After all, you’ve probably got your DVR schedule down already. Still, if someone at the office recommends a show, or the time of a game gets moved, it could come in handy. Not bad for a free app.

Comcast also notes that a similar DVR scheduling app will be making its way to Blackberries in the next few months.
