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.

If you PM me the email address you would use to sign up, I'll invite you! :)

Sounds pretty interesting, however I don't have an iphone or ipad.

Or an iPod Touch? If not, they told me they were working on an Android app. Hopefully it'll come out soon!

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 planned on downloading the app to my iPhone so do I just send you the e-mail that is on my Apple account?
htbthomas
Mar. 2nd, 2012 08:26 pm (UTC)
No, you can use any email address for it, since it's a sign-in through the app. I use a different one!

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 suck - I meant to reply to this and then you know me and my distractions...

I'm sort of thinking maybe I don't watch enough tv for it though? It's worth a try though...

Chickalea at gmail dot com. :)

Oh wait! Unless it's the e-mail attached to my iTunes account which is actually my real full name at gmail! ;-)

Like firstnamelastname@gmail? I don't have that one in my contacts.

But no, it doesn't have to be the iTunes account. Mine isn't. Just whatever addy you'd prefer to use when signing up.

Oh ok! Well then Chickalea@Gmail.com is good! :D YAY!!!

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
