    It also adds a "login in once with your TiVo.com account, use anywhere" feature, which is touted after first launching the app after updating. Unfortunately it doesn't work. After logging in with my TiVo account at home, when I went to my office (WiFi) and launched the app later in the day, I was told it couldn't find any devices on my LAN and asked me to log in again. So much for logging in once.

    As for the "What to watch" feature, at first glance I guess it could be somewhat useful to some people, but I'll probably never use it. It's annoying that it always opens to that page when starting the app.

    I like the new What to Watch functionality.

    I'd like the TiVo to start playing the show immediately when I click the cover art in WtW (maybe implemented only when you tap and hold on the cover art?).

    I wish they would add password persistence when in "away" mode. Having to input your password every time you open the app outside your home network is a deterrent to using the app when not at home. Thought that might have been fixed in the 3.0 update but no dice.
