DirecTV for iPhone reaches version 3.0, touts redesigned look and improved navigation

We knew DirecTV had a few things in mind for its various mobile apps, with the focus being on discovery features and an overall better experience. Now, following a refresh to the iPad app earlier this month, the iPhone version is getting updated to version 3.0. The highlights of today's release are the completely overhauled look and user interface, which allow users to browse content in an easier way and have more customization options within the guide -- things like setting your favorite channels. DirecTV also added a redesigned Info Page that displays more details about the content you're interested in, while a new Watch Button will let you seamlessly choose whether you want to view something on your iPhone or TV. Oh, and just in case you're still stuck in the old days, we should tell you that the company says this is the last update to support iOS 5, so any future versions are to only be friendly with iOS 6 or later.
