As a long-time Andriod user, I get excited when cool apps that iPhone users have had for a long time finally come to Andriod. This week, Andriod got Viggle! Have you heard about Viggle yet? If you haven’t my dear Android friends, you are going to love it. (Yes, iPhone friends you will love it too if you haven’t heard of it yet.)
Viggle is the app that rewards you for watching TV. Oh yes, for watching TV.
How does it work? When you watch TV – live TV – you check in to Viggle to earn points. You can also take quizzes about the show you are watching to earn more points. Then when you accumulate points, redeem them for gift cards. What kind of gift cards can you find? Old Navy, Starbucks, Fandango, Papa Johns and more.
How quickly can you earn? For watching Revenge I earned 300 points and another 5 for taking a quiz. (I also go a new-user bonus of 1,500 points) A Starbucks $5 gift card is $7,500 points, so I am on my way!
The big catch for me is that you have to watch live TV – no DVRs for check ins. But I can do that, from time to time.
One more reason to love my Verizon Droid Phone!
PS – it is NOT in Google Play yet (still in Beta), but Android users can get it here.
