Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC), which is still tied up in litigation with Viacom (NYSE: VIA) over what content can be shown on iPads linked to the system's TV service, is plotting an update on the iPad app.

According to PadGadget, a leaked document revealed that the application will soon provide seven days of program listings, remote control capabilities, a new settings tab, and the ability to remotely program the DVR similar to what can now be accomplished via the Time Warner Cable website.
