Windows 8 app for Uverse

I LOVE my Windows 8 Lumia 940 phone, but am shocked there is no U Verse app .  How can this be, since ATT Wireless SELLS my phone?  When can I expect to lose my Third World status with Uverse?

You should be able to manage your DVR from http://uverseonline.att.net on your phone.

There's a Lumia 940?!?

Do you have U-Verse TV and U-Verse internet?

Yeah, I am not having any luck either.  You would think if ATT is going to sell a phone to its Uverse customers that the uverse would be supported with Apps for the phone.

Yes I have both TV and Internet services and am an AT&T wireless user. The total lack of support from AT&T for the WP platform is beyond disappointing, especially since they're supposed to be the premier provider for Windows Phone. The few apps they do have are just absolute crap when compared to their iOS and Android counterparts.

I too have a Nokia (1020) and a Windows 8 tablet. Why is there no app for the Windows 8 tablet? I didn't buy the tablet from AT&T but still all the same I take as an insult that AT&T would put out an APP for Apple and Android users and NOT for Windows users. I have been an AT&T user for many, many, many years (including wireless when it was Cingular) and very, very, very offended. It seems AT&T does this all the time and it take years if ever for AT&T to get the app ready for Windows users. In my opinion AT&T shouldn't release an App for Apple and Android users unless there is also one ready for Windows users.

 

Disappointed,

Its down right stupid AT&T still has no App for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8. I am not going back to iOS or Android but very well may change my ISP and Television provider if AT&T continues to ignore Windows.

Blame market share.  Looked at how many Windows 8 phones get sold compared to iPhones/Android?

Marketshare is irrelevant. You can't tell me that AT&T doesn't have enough Windows 8 phone users that creating a Windows 8 app is not worth it. Besides, I'm also a Uverse subscriber as well as a Uverse digital phone subscriber and wireless phone subscriber. AT&T gets plenty of my money. I've been with AT&T wireless for over 15 years (iincludes when it was Cingular). I've been with Uverse for over 8 years and before that had AT&T DSL and have been an AT&T landline subscriber for over 40 years.

 

Marketshare, Bah Humbug!!!!

I can tell you that it has taken them 2 years to give to Android apps a feature that they introduced on iOS at the beginning of those two years (U-verse Connected).  If Android's marketshare had not dwarfed iOS's in that interval, it would not have happened.

 

It is not worth developing and supporting any application on any platform unless there is return on the investment fo develop and support that application.  Heck, for all I know they may release one tomorrow.  But I'm not betting that way.

Pretty sure Microsoft Windows dwarfs iOS and Android considering that 90% of the business world and home pc's run on Windows.

Add in Xbox One runs on Windows 8 OS as well, AT&T is not too sharp. I went to a Nokia 1520 and have Office 365, SkyDrive, OneDrive, Xbox Glass all through Microsoft. Yet my Uverse service is worthless because their lack of support for actual users rather than the smart phone for dummies iOS users.

what a joke!

Here, here! That is exactly right not to mention that if AT&T isn't going to completely support Windows OS they shouldn't feature phones that have it.

After at&t discontinued the uverse app for wp7 I had been hurting for years for a u verse app, after coming across this thread and reading the employees posts and followed their web link. We actually are able to manage our uverse dvr queue with the mobile uverse web app on our windows phone. Try this web link http://m.uverse.com/ and try it on different 3rd party browser apps for windows phone to get the best experience on your phone. I know it really stinks that we have no real app to use on windows phone but at least we can manage our dvr queue on our phone also like the rep said on your windows tablet you can manage your queue through the web app and its not too bad, I even pinned my dvr queue as a tile on my start screen. So with that being said we may not have an official app but we can still manage our DVR with our windows phone and windows tablet, even though its a web app I am grateful!

Thanks for the information. While it's true the link works it is not a good solution. The information is truncated and it's difficult to maneuver the site.

I have a Nokia 920 with Windows 8.1 and cannot use the mobile App nor the online site.  Windows phone does not have flash player.  When I first went with the Windows Phone 7 ATT had an app for Windows phones to use Uverse,  Now Att has decided to create an app that only works on Apple and Android.  They are also doing away with UVerse Media Share and are only going to use an app called Jukebox.  Quess what?  It too doesn't work on Windows phones.  ATT has offered me the chance to upgrade ny phone, at a total cost of close to $700 (Next program for 30 months).  I feel this is almost a bait and switch move to get loyal customers to switch to the new program and spend more money.  I feel ATT has fallen very short in taking care of its customers in the case.  Looking at other mobile options.

But an iPhone or iPad! Seriously, it has EVERYTHING to do with market share whether you like to hear it or not. Eventually, they will develop an app for the Windows platform but it likely isn't worth it at this point. Developing an app is NOT a simple task and it costs quite a bit of money... I'm not talking thousands of dollars, more like millions or tens of millions of dollars. Then you have the security issues and since Uverse is a voice delivery platform, there are additional security issues and compliances that have to be met.

Way too many startups including teens, college students and every entity in
between develops apps so it can't be that expensive. I know your thing is
why don't do my own, well if I could I would. Market share has nothing to do
with it. They have sold enough Windows phone to make it worthwhile.
Especially considering it's their own customers. Let us just agree to
disagree.

I believe this conundrum was answered in the second post, but was not recognized because it is a simple basic reason (which was not mentioned in the post).

 

Apps are for simple/primitive portable device OS's not computer level OS.

 

There are no apps for MAC OSs because the equivalent support is on a browser or stand alone programs - In this case, browser access to  http://uverseonline.att.net  or uverse.com.

 

The iphone/ipad OS is more primititive than the MAC OS. It does not fully support browser  access to functionality. Therefore, it uses simplistic apps to do a single function.

 

Apps can apply to other minimal OSs on portable devices. But, windows 7 & 8 are fully robust computer OSs, equivalent to MAC OS. Therefore, access is easily accomplished via a browser. There is no need to build a focused app to accomplish the same thing.

 

It should be a good thing that some portable devices have a robust computer level OS to access anything available on a computer. Seems like people prefer a gazillion simple little apps (most of which I find seriously deficient) than one generic browser to accomplish almost anything you can imagine.

 

The equivalent to a page full of app icons to select from would be a folder of bookmarks in a browser.

 

If the web access via browser is not working well, then work to have that improved or repaired.

Why should market share have any bearing on a paid for service!? They also should put a disclaimer (apple and Android only) at the end of the commercials I see 10+ times a day!!! They should let a third party make the app they would prob do a better job anyway! Ex Rudy Huyn, Lazyworm
