    Wow, their web presentation is impressive. You'd almost think you were using a native iPhone app!

    What other cool app-like bookmarks do you have for the iPhone? :D

    That's what I'm waiting for. :) In fact, I think I'll write them saying so.

    i would love to see this happen, as it stands it's not too hard to go to tivo's website, but being abel to bypass that step would be even better

    There are quite a few ideas that are actually better as web apps than native ones. This is one of them.

    No need to clutter up the store and have to deal with updates when this works just as well. Glad to see them take this approach.

    Don't hold your breath. We're still waiting for Tivo to make a full Tivo2Go app for the mac. I don't think they really understand or care about the viral marketing benefits of broadening their reach into other mediums. Besides the iphone, they have never provided a mobile version of their scheduling site. And even their normal scheduling site is pretty week. You basically have to blindly schedule shows instead of being able to give Tivo permission to upload your todo list and showing you exactly what the conflicts are before you add a show.

    Do they have an iphone-optimized scheduling site? When I go to it, it looks like the same page/interface as the full-blown site. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something..

    Also, I think Tivo has a scheduling app on Verizon phones, so they may have some exclusivity deal which would explain lack of presence on competitors..

    Oh yeah forgot about that. As much as I love my TiVo, the company is close to incompetent for most other facets of it. I think we may have to wait to see if the web scheduler has a public API for it?
