The new AT&T U-Verse App for IPad is a small improvement but you still have a long way to go!

To AT&T team,

 

The new AT&T U-Verse App for IPad is a small improvement but you still have a long way to go!

 

I just download the app but from my perspective there is little use for it.  Let me explain.  I already have 6 receivers and HDTVs in my house including one wireless receiver. The ability to watch my recorded programs ONLY WHEN I AM CONNECTED TO THE AT&T Wi-fi on my IPAD is not high on my priority list.

 

As I stated on a previous posting the U-Verse App for the IPhone allows me to download programs to my IPhone and watch them on a plane while Airplane Mode in active. There is no similar feature on the IPad becuase of licensing issues.

 

Please continue to work on delivering the same service to the IPad.

 

Sincerely

 

Raul Gonzalez

Raul,

 

For you (and for me), watching live TV on a tablet in my home is not a big deal.  For others, it is a phenominally big deal.  Hey, I'm not sure why anyone would prefer a 10" iPad to a 42" (or larger) HD display, but apparently those people exist.  And Post.

 

I wish the content providers didn't see the iPhone and iPad as different platforms that can be licensed differently, but they do.  I wish that AT&T would view the Android platform as being as important as the iOS platform, but they don't.

Welcome Raul (Don't be a stranger on the forums) and thanks for the insight, Jeffer!

 

 

I also feel that Android is treated like a Red Headed Step Child also but Windows Phone users must feel like they are in the Dog's house.

 

108 channels sounds cool but when you subtract the 88 channels that are "in home only," I don't see that as that big of a deal, considering the 3 rooms that i spend 90% of my free time in, already have STB's....
