I'm usually not too fond of carrier's bloatware, manufacturer's skins, and other causes of lag and potential frustration for end users (not to mention that I'm especially skeptical when it's coming from AT&T), but AT&T's new U-verse Mobile app for Android isn't looking too bad. To be clear, this isn't anything new; the app's already been available for the iPhone, the Blackberry, and the Xbox 360 in addition to being available on Windows Phone 7 devices at launch, but now it's made its way to our operating system of choice!
The app is only relevant to U-verse subscribers, and rather than allowing users to actually watch TV over a 3G connection, AT&T merely allows its minions to:
- manage DVR recordings
- browse the U-verse TV program guide
Literally, that's it - unless you're on WiFi, in which case you can download (not stream) the content to your device.
