    Amazon Prime and HBOGo should be on a short list of future apps. No one really wants to play games on their TiVo. People have Xboxes or phones/tablets for that. The TiVo UI is so slow I can't imagine it will have enough power forma decent game experience.

    I would agree that there are way more important apps than games. Its good to see that there is now an app development house in sync with the TiVo platform that should result in more apps now and in the future. I assume they have significant reuse from their other platforms so new apps should be rolled out pretty quickly.

    A couple of apps I would like to see in addition to more content apps mentioned (HBOGo, Amazon Prime Streaming) is a sports app that provides a snapshot of current sports being aired, what the scores are, and quickly allows a user to switch to a game. I would also like to see an app that allows for a twitter stream next to a live video playing... so for example you would be able to watch the Bill Clinton speech and see what the twitter verse is saying about his deviation from the transcript.
