IntoNow from Yahoo is this week’s App of the Week in the iPad App Store. It offers a ‘companion television experience’, or as Yahoo describes it:
IntoNow from Yahoo makes watching TV more engaging, social, and fun –
using a little bit of magic.
Just tap the green button when you’re watching TV- whether live or recorded – and IntoNow will identify the show and reward you with related content, personalized recommendations, and discussions to connect with friends.
I’m glad to see this fun app featured in the App Store, as it was our pick last weekend for Best Free iPad App of the Week. I described it in that post like so:
It’s another real ‘wow factor’ iPad app. Just as with the Shazam app for song identification, it’s pretty amazing to surf around your TV channels, then just tap the green button, see it listening and receiving info, and watch it identify perfectly the show or movie you’re watching. Or the football game or other sporting event you’re tuned into.
Here’s an App Store link for IntoNow; it’s still a free app.
