It looks like Verizon has just combined home monitoring, customer service, entertainment, and remote control functions of several separate FiOS apps into one single “My FiOS” app. It used to be that FiOS users would have to download and use separate apps for each device or account they wanted to control. Now, Big Red has made it super convenient by removing the need to use functions of many apps and simply combined them into one.
Currently only available on Android, Verizon’s new app allows users remotely access home automation, movies and Flex View TV programs while being able to monitor account activity and billing all within the same application. You can even control your home phone and DVR, but there are a few requirements to do so. The Android Market states that “you must have the current version of the My Verizon Home Account, Verizon FiOS Digital Voice, Verizon Media Manager, Verizon Home Control, or Verizon FiOS Remote mobile applications on your device.”
Like I said earlier, it is currently only available on Android and your device must run on Android 2.1 and above. Jump past the break for download links and a full press release with all the gritty details. If you are Verizon FiOS client and give this new app a whirl, be sure to let us know what you think.
