There is a cool new Apple iTunes app that may be a great tool in our quest to overcome Nielsen invisibility.
Doesn’t “Viggle” sound like a Walterism? *grin*
Viggle is the next generation of interactive television check-in services. It is also a new twist on a loyalty program. The app takes advantage of the iPhone’s sound recognition capabilities in order to determine what television show is being watched by the user. As this can be registered during a live airing of a show, or from a DVR recording, this would be great to record views for Fringe. The program awards points for the viewing, and these can be exchanged for gift cards to places like Amazon.com. Or the points can be converted to a charity donation.
All in all, a pretty good deal just for watching Fringe.
