Say what you will about Apple's tablet – it makes one hell of a remote.
The iPad is a divisive gizmo. Some people love it for its ease of use, others claim it serves no practical purpose. Whatever side you fall on, you've got to admit that using it as an advanced remote for your TiVo is pretty darn cool.
TiVo's iPad app works just like you'd expect it to. You can bring up a live TV schedule or a list of your recorded shows, scroll through them and select the one you want. It's simple and intuitive, just like it should be. TiVo says that the app will be available in the coming weeks.
"We’re bringing TiVo’s innovative user interface from the TV directly to your fingertips, taking your TV viewing experience to a whole new level," says TiVo marketing president Jim Denney. "There’s no better example of TiVo’s passion for innovation and focus on ease-of-use than the TiVo Premiere App for iPad."
Don't have a TiVo and an iPad? You're in luck. The folks at TiVo are giving away nine prize packages that include a TiVo Premiere and an iPad on their Facebook page.
