Re: Windows phone app

It seems that when the Chicago Cubs win a world series we will get one. The windows phone remote app no longer works and I have been asking for a windows phone video app since I got my windows phone 8 in November of 2012

Re: Windows phone app

To put it bluntly, probably not for a long time, if ever. It took the better part of a year to get the Android version of apps that were released first on iOS & android is a commanding force in the smartphone market, whereas windows is not. Have a look at the chart below, the last bar on the right was the market shares for the major mobile OS's at the end of last year. Windows is a teeny piece of that. Large companies can't justify resources (IE - time which = money) to make these apps or convert them over.

 

Oh and corgi11, I hope you're wrong. We used to say the same thing here in MA until the Sox won in '04. We've won 3 world series in the last 10 years now whereas we hadn't for 86 years prior. Don't give up hope!

I hope you are right, but as far as the Chicago Cubs go, I guess any team can have a bad century

I know right, give it a few more decades, I'm sure they'll come around! =)

Re: Windows phone app

not talking about a remote app - more like a live tv app like advertised.

Re: Windows phone app

I would like a windows phone and tablet app now that developers have the platform.  Especially since xfinity keeps sending me emails to dowload their apps.  Disappointing when you don't have one for me. Hopefully,  the more people ask the more developers will respond.

Re: Windows phone app

Very Strange my wife and I are using 2 Nokia Windows 8 Phones we bought in November of 2012 and once we switched over to X-1 from regular DVRs the remote app stopped working. Are all your boxes X-1 and which windows phone are you using and what is the version of the remote app you are using. I have removed and downloaded the latest one and it only shows tv information and it does not show any DVR information at all.

When will Comcast get some windows phone and windows 8 apps?

There are over 20 million windows 8/ windows phone 8 users in the USA now. Even if only 20% are Comcast users  that is still some 4 million devices - not enough for Comcast to make some apps ....

Re: Windows phone app

Agree completely.   Comcast needs to address this lack of a windows phone app.

Re: Windows phone app

Another reason to switch to DirectTV.  I can't justify the cost of Comcast with the lack of support and features.

Re: Windows phone app

Please consider releasing a windows phone app for tv and movie streaming. If you can make one for the remote you should be able to make one for viewing on a windows phone.

Re: Windows phone app

everyone is wanting an app for windows to operate the dvr and tv. How about an app for Xfinity Home so I can do remote set and disarm of my alarm system and check my camera for safety of my family. If anyone knows of a app that will work let me know. Support says they are working on an app but no one knows about it.

Re: Windows phone app

Windows 10 is out. Thats a lot of devices for Comcast to keep ignoring especially with Microsoft's Surface line seeing large growth and the iPad shrinking. Time to make a Windows 10 Universal app Comcast or I will go back to cord cutting. At least when I buy the shows I can take them with me.

Re: Windows phone app

I have 5 Windows phones running Win 10 (Windows Insider), a laptop running win 10, and a desktop running win 10. A universal app would be nice.

Re: Windows phone app

They can just port the app to windows without changing any code. Microsoft ha made it very easy for apple and android apps to be ported to windows.

Re: Windows phone app

After reading this. ..I'd like to point out a few things. ..1 quit buying windows phones for entertainment purposes they really aren't great for that and the windows platform is seriously lacking. ..2 just because an OS releases doesn't guarantee an app release. .porting apps from android or ios isn't so simple Microsoft made got think it's easy by giving you ways to run the app via an emulator on the back end. ..still buggy and will cause issues depending on other apps you have running. ..be patient if the demand is great enough I can guarantee comcast will make it. ..after all they are in the business of making money. ..until then use a better platform

Re: Windows phone app
