    Any word on a TiVo app for android? Not the TiVo remote app like iPhone but scheduler app like blackberry.

    The Android remote app available for 99 cents works OK usually, and does offer some nice shortcuts and the ability to use the Android keyboard for searches, but it's a bit laggy and sometimes I have to stop/start my phone's wifi connection to get it to work. But you're right, that's only remote, not scheduling.

    As suggested, m.tivo.com works OK for scheduling over phone.

    The existing TiVo app for iPad works just as well on iPad 2. No difference at all.

    I think RIM developed the Blackberry app, not TiVo. I wouldn't hold your breath.

    Meh. It's not compatible with some recently released platforms (like the Droid Bionic). At the very least, I'd like it to have the functionality of the "My Tivo" page at tivo.com. I know that the S2 doesn't have the remote control functions, but you should at least be able to schedule recordings.

    It works great on my 7" Galaxy Tab (T-Mo version), but it's not working on my Nexus One rooted with CM7, can not see either of the 2 Tivos on my homenetwork (1 PXL, 1 plain Premiere).

    The unofficial Tivo Commander has the same problem, can not see the Tivo's on my Nexus One, maybe issue with the phone, and not Tivo app. But Tivo Commander allows me to enter my Tivo's IP address manually and can still get full functionality with that workaround. The official Tivo app does not allow manual input of Tivo's IP, so it's useless on my Nexus One.

    I was able to put in my Tivo Premiere's IP, but since then my only option is to force close it. This is on a rooted Nook Tablet.

    Tivo Commander seems to have disappeared from the Android Market :( Good thing I still have it on my phone

    How did you enter the IP? That was the best failsafe idea of the tivo commander app, and I had hoped tivo would put it in theirs, but i couldn't find the option.

    Yesterday's Free App of the Day from Amazon allows you to control your PC with your Android Phone. It's pretty cool. I think it costs $4.99 today.
    You would have to leave a PC on, but it seems to be pretty neat.
    So you could run TiVo to go on the Go.
    But not sure how you schedule a recording that way.
    You can do it online can't you?

    I think it's still available somewhere but was removed from the official app store. See the Underground forum for more details.
