You know what is unexpectedly awesome?

Viggle.

I gave it a shot, thinking it would probably be worthless, but in 10 days of TV watching and checking in, I've earned (and used, it's practically instantaneous) $10 in Starbucks gift cards.

I wish it was available on Android, but it is on iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad (I bought a microphone since it wasn't built in to my 2nd gen Touch.)

So anyway, anyone else use it? Want to? ( I get points if you sign up, *grin*)

I have never heard of such a thing...what is it? Not that I watch that much TV at this time.

It's an app for Apple devices. You have it listen for a couple of minutes at the beginning of a show, and it gives you points for each show you check into. You get ~50-100 points per show, but many offer an extra 200-300 points additional. More if you share it on Twitter or Facebook. I've earned 1,930 pts just in the last 24 hours. And rewards start at 7,500 pts (like the $5 Starbucks cards).

It even counts things like the local news and recognizes my Hulu and On Demand watching, though I haven't tried anything older than a week yet.

I have it too and like it a lot. I thought it would be scam-ish but it's really not. I already got an Amazon gift card from it, which is really nice.

Do you use the share my check-in? I've been using one of my alternate Twitter accounts to avoid spamming, but I can't find anywhere how many points it adds. (it definitely seems to!)

I'll do it! I watch a shitload of TV, might as well get something out of it.

I'm curious about it but it looks like it's US-only. Ah well.

Ah, man. I was hoping it was at least North America. :( I knew it was not UK or elsewhere.

I have no idea what it is, but if it's still around in 18 months when I might get back to the States and get an iPhone I'll certainly look into it :D From your description below it sounds AWESOME
