Google Fiber is only available in a handful of cities right now. Recently Provo, Utah and Austin, Texas were added to Fiber’s list however the service roll out there will take some time. Right now only Kansas City and its “fiberhoods” have access to Google’s gigabit internet and TV service. The iPad exclusive Fiber remote app is now available for download, no iPhone version is available as yet though the company is planning on getting it out in the near future. Android users obviously have the upper hand. They can control Fiber TV with any recent Android device by downloading the app, which has been available for quite some time now, from Play Store.
Google Fiber iPad app is similar in functionality to its Android counterpart, though it has been specifically designed for iOS 6, so one might notice some slight design changes. The app allows Fiber TV streaming straight through iPad, ability to search for TV shows and record them on to DVRs. Its now available for download from iTunes App Store. You must have iOS 6.0 or higher firmware version in order to download this free app.
