Setting Your DVR from Anywhere

Every year, the Forbes.com website decides which are the best of all technical offerings and puts them into their Top Ten lists. One of the top ten branded mobile applications of 2009 was the DirecTV iPhone App.

For many years, digital video recording (DVR) was only something you could access from your living room and program recordings with the DVR remote. Since DirecTV put up options for programming online, customers have enjoyed being able to schedule show recordings from computers outside the home.

This iPhone app from DirecTV is yet another step forward, because you can now set up recordings from anywhere. For example, if the meeting has run late at work and you can’t get home in time to watch your favorite show, you can set your DirecTV DVR from your iPhone and watch the show whenever you get around to it.

Forbes.com pointed out that this iPhone app has a nice streamlined interface. They also touted its ease of usability and convenience for busy people.

The ability to search for the show or shows you want and quickly select the show and either record one show or the entire season is another reason why this app is so popular. You can search by title, actors, descriptions, date and time or channel.

Perhaps the best feature of the DirecTV iPhone app is that it is a free download for DirecTV customers. Over 1,000,000 downloads of this app took place within months of it coming out. Busy people in today’s society appreciate any time-saving convenience they can get.
