I was on the phone with a friend talking about a TV show that I recorded and she had not. The idea of emailing her the show to her play list came to mind. If we are both FIOS Internet and FIOS TV customers, then using an email widget from the TV screen or an option on my playlist, I would like to send the show to a friends play list to watch. List of contacts from selected email account will need to be available to select sender. Now on Receivers end, she would have to accept the show option with sender name, name of show and description for it to download to her list. This accept option is not for Pay Per View shows or content on channels not available to the receiving system, without a fee. If the customer has the channel then the cost is free. Example, we both have HBO, we can send movies to each other but if only the sender has HBO, the person accepting does not have the channel then she pays a one-time fee, if legal otherwise the send is denied with channel not available to sender message. If the person accepting the show, does not have space on there play list, then the systems prompts giving deleting options that will allow enough space or an option to accept later so the person can watch some of those options prior to deleting. If you accept later, then when ready just click on the accept option, anytime. I think this would be really cool feature requiring FIOS. An ideas to make it better?
During the recent upgrade, maybe, the NYC 311 widget stopped working. It lets you select cameras, but they can't be opened up. Is there a way to do it? Pressing the OK button doesn't work. Please fix it.
I only accidentally found the FIOS remote control widget for my ipod touch yesterday, it could have been available for months or more. How about a What's New in the monthly billing email /paperless statement?
Are there are plans to allow internet video streams to be viewed through the VZ media manager in the same way we have internet radio streams now? I want to be able to put in the stream address myself and not be locked in to youtube and others. Is this capability coming?
I notice you have the I Heart Radio App in the widget section. How about adding the TuneIn Radio App to receive the rest of the radio stations out there? I Heart Radio is only clear channel radio stations but TuneIn Radio gets the rest. I use it on my Andriod phone and I think it would only compliment the I Heart Radio App. Thanks.

I know there have been people that have suggested wireless keyboards and mice. It would be nice to have the optional slide out type remote keyboard that the other DVR supplier has. Gyro type positioning pointer for the mouse. Then access to the community.
Or a nice App that would work well with the Iphone and provide complete web access to the Community. I believe it would be cool to have a widget and STB access. But without a keyboard it would be rough.
I am recording a college football game on the DVR for my fiance while he is at work, which I would rather not watch. I attempted to turn on Pandora using the widgets on Verizon Fios while I do my house cleaning. It showed a prompt that said I would have to stop my DVR recording in order to use the widgets. Needless to say, I am unable to listen to Pandora.
Perhaps you guys can fix this. Us women would greatly appreciate it. =)
During the college basketball season, ESPN.com (not ESPN network) air many games that are only viewable on the internet via ESPN.com. In order for me to get the best viewing experience, I connected my laptop to my TV and was able to watch the games via that hookup. However, connecting the two was quite a pain, especially with wires sticking out.
Given that FIOS now has some internet access widgets, how about adding a widget that allows customers to watch the games that are only available via ESPN.com on TV? This could work in the extact same manner as Youtube whereby the customer would need to install and have running the Verizon Media Manager.
I realize this idea won't make it into the next few releases of the IMG, but the next big leap I would like to see is pointer like control for the guide. Scroll, scroll, scroll, is old. Take the Nintendo Wii console for example. Using simple IR technology, an on screen pointer can be used to select items on screen. This is a lot more intuitive than scrolling through items. Another implementation could be to expand the FiOS Remote app for cellphone, tablets, and home pc to be WYSIWYG. So for the PC for example I could move my mouse pointer and I would see a mouse pointer move on the TV screen. I could type in a search on my regular keyboard and it'll type in on screen simultaneously. Smartphones and tablet applications would be touch based instead of a pointer, but the idea would be the same, what I do on the device simultaneously comes up on screen. So instead of scrolling through the guide by pressing the arrow keys, I could swipe my finger across the touch screen and the IMG on the TV will move accordingly, or I could even swype in my searches.
