    The “Comcast mobile App” will be delayed until 12/03 forAndroid devices. Originally, it was scheduled to launch yesterday, 11/30.The release available for Android devices will be version 2.0.

    The features included in Android 2.0 include: Email Inbox; Voicemail; Universal Address Book; TV Listings/Guide; On Demand; myDVR Manager; Videos On Demand. In order to support these products and help reduce some confusion surrounding the products, features, services and applications we have developed a new LOQ – XFINITY Features that should be your starting point for each of these products.

    My source is direct since i work for them. FYI...

    I got it just now. It is under XFINITY Mobile. I had to get it from the Market directly from the phone. AppBrain and market via AndroidForums does not show it on the search.

    You need a comcast.net email address to use it, which might be only available if you are internet subscriber, (although you might be able to get the email address just by being a phone or TV subscriber, but I dont know).

    Already set my DVR to record something and I was able to see all my calls from in last 24 hrs. So it is a pretty slick app so far.

    I would love to have seen it be able to control the cable boxes too, such as changing channels, etc. Oh well.

    From the website, it seems like you select the from the guide and click Watch on TV... so it is not acting like your infrared remote, it's actually the cable changing the channel, like it does for DVR.

    How evil would it be to change the channel from work, while my wife is home watching it? :D

    Can Comcast do nothing right?? I downloaded the new app, very excited because it looked like a really useful way to manage my comcast email from my phone. But as the previous commenter noted, it freezes my phone and gets stuck downloading messages. I'll uninstall and reinstall, but I'm not hopeful. I'd be interested to hear if others have had the same problems.

    I installed it on the day that it came out on Market. After I used it for a few minutes I noticed that the back of my HTC DINC was very warm and that my battery had chunked down quite a bit. Along with that, the lack of a landscape view on the TV listing is a deal breaker. Portrait view is far too limiting.

    And do these apps count as BW usage?

    It is now over nine months since the last post in this thread, and the Xfinity app is still not working properly. I installed it and discovered that the "manual" setting in how often to download e-mail is broken. You can set it to "manual," and it still downloads new e-mail every hour.

    I had to uninstall it.
