App Showcase: i. TV 2.0 Brings TiVo Remote, Push Notifications, Amps Up The Shiny
i.TV version 2.0 [App Store, Free] was released this week with some incredibly compelling new features. For those unfamiliar with the app, i.TV allows you to browse TV listings and new movie releases. In this latest release, i.TV now sports a significantly updated user interface along with a nice performance increase. Likely the most talked about feature will be its new remote capability which allows it to control any network-based device with the proper integration. TiVo is the first to introduce a soft remote for i.TV, although other manufacturers are welcome to add support for their devices.

The killer feature for me is the addition of push notifications. With just a few taps, you can have i.TV alert you whenever your favorite show is coming on. How awesome is that! And of course you can now view and purchase content from iTunes using i.TV.
If you haven’t checked it out in a while, i.TV definitely deserves your attention. Version 2.0 is available in the App Store at the unbeatable price of free.
