Most issues resolved with this release. Wish some more features were available and links for Connect to X1 Services Greatly improved. Make & take calls via your Comcast phone number anywhere there's a data connection. Even check e-mail and store your contacts to your XFinity address book. Accessible on the web. Missing featured, Still no calendar. It'd be awesome to have an Xfinity Calendar that gave you reminders that alerted you on your X1 TV's. Also, text message alerts still won't come up unless the app is open. I would also like to see text messages appear on the X1, in the message boxes. IFTTT Recipe or something.
Took a step backwards The app used to work very well. After the last update, I can no longer toggle between it and any other apps. I often times copy & paste addresses & text from other apps into an email. I used to be able to toggle back & forth, but now this app no longer appears as a recently used app to toggle to
Lots of great features I can receive phone calls sent to my home as well as check Caller ID of previous numbers that called. Playback and read transcripts of voicemail left for me. Send and receive text messages sent to the home phone. It's like being at home, even when you're away. You can even set up an extra account under someone else's name so your children can call or text over WiFi without cell phone service.
Update= even worse On top of previous issue, now i NEVER receive notification in notification bar of a new email as i did before installing update, and they wonder why people are so hesitant to update the xfinity apps!!!! can NEVER attach any file or picture to my emails from this application. What's the point of using it is that's the case????
Surprisingly good. I'm not a big fan of Comcast. Chose them as my ISP due to lack of options, kept them due to laziness. However, fair is fair. This app is sleek, intuitive, and doesn't skimp on functionality compared to the website, like most apps do. Huge upgrade from the default pre-installed e-mail application.
Does what it says I just wanted an App to check my Comcast email. It does that very well. It does well more than that, though I haven't explored them yet. For an email App, I'd say that it hits all the desirables. The management of emails is easy and let's you move through them at a comfortable pace. The thing I like most about it is the instant ability of opening email. So basic yet so simple.
