4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Idea If You're Into Social Media but... January 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
For some reason Google play says this is incompatible with tablets. Yet, the Amazon Appstore let me download it to my Toshiba Thrive with ICS and all works and looks fine. Go figure?!

There's several apps like this out there, but the basic premise of this one is to watch live TV with friends online and share in the experience. So you can have a viewing party for most any TV show, yet not have to clean up, get dressed or invite everyone over, since they're wherever they are, and you're all experiencing the same TV show and interacting via this app. I suppose this might be a good way to stay connected with friends, or even make new ones online.

Local Results

The thing that makes this app interesting from similar ones, is it actually hones in on who is in your area watching the same thing. I could see this turning into a dating app as much as a TV app. Hooking up, frankly, seems to be the whole point of FB and social networking in general; not exclusively about that, just mostly.

Well Laid Out

Stuff made sense to me and I was able to easily find the shows I like and see what others are saying about it. Everything was easy to navigate, was snappy and responsive, and I had no glitches.

Tragic Flaw - This App's Kryptonite is a DVR

Watching live TV with friends online sounds novel. But I watch 99% of everything from a DVR. I don't watch anything live anymore. So that in itself, renders this app useless to me. What's the point of connecting with others live, if I'm always late to the party? Sometimes days late because I watch TV on my own schedule, and never at the assigned time-slot. I guess this might be good for actual live events, like the Superbowl or the Oscars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not work on Kindle Fire HD August 1, 2013

This app lags and crashes on the Kindle Fire HD. The app itself seems to be well designed, but it's useless to me on my device.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smooth October 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
Download and install was clean, app is easy to use and navigate. Layout for guide is an exact match for my U-Verse. I assume that it would match any other provider as it asks for your provider during install. While the app is excellent and has no flaws I can see, I'm not sure I would liek watching programs this way and just get more distracting info. But as far as app goes, I like this one.
