TiVo and web firm Mobui today rolled out TiVo Mobile. The web app gives the iPhone, iPod touch and other mobile devices with full web browsers the ability to remotely schedule one of TiVo’s Series 2 or 3 DVRs and to find shows using most of the criteria the set-top boxes themselves use, including content and keywords from shows as well as daily highlights and popular shows.
Flash video support on the iPhone can be a real pain, especially when you want to watch someone’s video on a site like Qik.Thankfully they have heard out frustration and have launched a mobile version of their website with QuickTime-formatted videos that can be watched from the Mobile Safari browser.
