Looks like Verizon has finally taken my advice and has begun consolidating their disparate FiOS-related apps into a unified control panel. Instead of say launching an individual mobile program to change channels on our Verizon DVR and then launching another to manage recordings, those formerly distinct functions are now logically accessed and controlled via the single interface of MY FiOS. Further, Verizon tells me:
The new app will allow Verizon customers to more nimbly enjoy the company’s expanding base of remote-access media and entertainment services, while also making it easier to manage their personal accounts anywhere and anytime on their favorite devices. It also paves the way for easy access to dozens of new remote applications currently in development by Verizon and the company’s content provider partners.
MY FiOS is now available to Android owners in the Market with the iPhone equivalent expected to hit later this year. I assume Verizon intends to decommission their earlier app smorgasbord, but they indicate both new and old apps will coexist for the time being.
