AT&T today announced that they have launched the U-verse Mobile App. It lets U-verse customers record and watch TV shows from their iPhone, as well as manage their their DVR.
This software, AT&T says, will replace their Mobile Remote Access App, and incorporate some extra features.
Though the App lets you download shows, know that it's only over wifi. Not surprising, but we figured we should answer the question before it's asked.
The App is available here for free: Link
