Sweet. This should make a lot of people here happy.
Why is this new ? I have always been able to play Live & recorded TV on my 5" smartphone using a web browser (Dolphin)
@lowbee - While these apps are still based on HTML, they will behave much more like a native smartphone app and will be available for download from the app stores.
@TabloTV is the whole app HTML based or will only playback be html?
@Jestep - We’ve wrapped the HTML in a smartphone-friendly envelope. Playback is native but the rest is HTML.
Will this support AirPlay on iOS … and the whole sync thing is very painful if you only seldom watch on your phone … Honestly when the app launches it should allow you to play a video and in the background do a sync … …or better yet just display only the required information needed to render the current screen on the phone and just store the rest of the data on the tablo itself… and eschew syncing completely (think thin-client).
@Ericgus @TabloSupport yes and no – it’s still thick-client. There is work going on though to support thin-clients, but this round of phone apps has the same behavior as the other apps in that there’s an initial sync process.
Woo Hoo! Will this have the same functionality as the Tablet App? The reason I ask is that for some reason I can access Tablo from my Nexus 7 on my LAN but not my Note II but when on WAN Tablo Connect works perfectly on the Note II. Will this allow Note II access like Nexus 7 on LAN?
@Artemus - We haven’t done testing on a wide variety of phones yet so I can’t say for sure how it will work for you. However, it will have the same functionality as the web app.
