Have you heard about the newest technology that’s headed straight to your home? Sites like http://www.slackware.org are going on and on about the Genie, there’s the Roku, just so much. There are also these pieces of software. Companion apps are what they’re called, and these mobile devices keep you connected and provide you extra information about what’s on TV without taking away from your big screen. Turn on your iPad or smartphone and you’ll find yourself in a brave, new world.
Among the features of companion apps are the ability to post to social networks, chat live with friends, view clothing and accessories that the stars are wearing and view exclusive content about your favorite TV shows. If you’re already a member of sites like GetGlue, which allows you to check in and earn “stickers” for tuning in, then you’ll enjoy that aspect of companion apps on the way!
Companion apps aren’t exactly new, but they’re really starting to take off. Cable and satellite providers as well as broadcasting channels are among the groups pushing this newest trend. Even companies from across the pond are getting in the action, so you might ask about these programs the next time you head to a TV site to sign up for a plan, troubleshoot your service or just see what’s available for you.
