Rumors of a more full-featured U-verse iPhone app surfaced last September, with a report from an AT&T insider earlier this year also detailing a forthcoming iPhone app to control U-verse's TV component. The released version, however, does not provide the ability to control DVR playback as the previous rumors suggested, instead focusing solely on searching and scheduling functions.
