Sort of works, but missing a lot of features
It seems there are literally thousands of negative reviews on here, but Verizon does not seem to be interested in responding to them by implementing any of the suggestions or fixing the problems. I can now kind of understand why they never will because of the imminent sale of their wireline business toFrontier, who will most probably not be interested in improving the app, if they don't abandon it completely. My biggest gripe, from the beginning, was the lack of ability to view LOCAL programming on my mobile device. There are but just few channels available for viewing on mobile devices. Why does Verizon think their customers want to use their mobile devices only as an additional remote or program guide?
Good idea, bad application
I like this app when it is working. It freezes and crashes often when you can get it and you can only get the most channels when it’s on WiFi. Very few of the channels I want are available when my iPhone and iPad are on cellular and not on WiFi at home. It is not truly mobile. When connected to my home via WiFi, it works fairly well, but I would like it to get more TV channels. It does work well as a remote, getting TV listings, and scheduling recording when away from home. Lastly, it would be nice to be able to see recorded shows via this app when away from home.
Useful but room for improvement
I use the app often so I must say I recommend it. That said I often experience problems connecting to the set top boxes on my house. Not sure if that's an issue with the box or the app. Also I don't quite understand the option to watch certain channels and certain shows on my iPad and iPhone. Sometimes it's available. Sometimes not. Back to where I began this review--I recommend the app. I can't always find the remote but my phone is always handy.
