    Can anyone say update needed?
  • by Chris 11/15/2014
    Folks need to stop complaining this app doesn't do things it never said it did! I can set my TiVo to record when I'm not home - that's what I want it to do, and it works well. Would give more stars for navigation improvements and more control over recording options (early start, extended stop times).

    Such a pathetic effort...directv should be ashamed, might as well just take this garbage out of the store....

    This app desperately needs an update :( NOW!!! It's been 4 Years 😞

    Terrible app. Crashes when you search for anything. Non functional
  • by Dawn 10/28/2014
    Errors out all the time. Great in theory, not so useful in reality.
  • by Bryan 10/27/2014
    Not even close to other platforms! They should be ashamed to call this an app worthless. Updated: Still worthless just pull it from the store and be done.

    I would give no stars if i could. It is hardly worth the space on my phone.

    Just switched to a Nokia WP8 from a Motorola Droid Phone and this WP app is the epitome of dysfunction. I actually use my old Droid phone just as a DIRECTV controller; the Google play app is that good. Enough complaints and maybe they’ll do something. Amazing that I can watch DIRECTV over a Windows Network laptop but not on a windows phone.
