Application of the week
Clicker.com has announced that they are releasing an application for smart phones. Clicker is a college student’s best friend. This application allows a user to download, blog, and discuss about any show on television.
The application supports shows from Itunes and Hulu. This way if you miss that all-important episode of the Jersey Shore you can simply stream it to your phone.
There are currently 1,800 web shows, over 200,000 television shows, and 12,000 shows from iTunes that are downloadable.
Clicker is also in the works with Netflix, to see if it is at all possible that users could download and watch a movie directly from their account. This is impressive since the Netflix app isn’t even in the app store yet. However Netflix and Hulu Plus will only be supported with the iPhone.
One of the best parts about this application is that it can also be downloaded to the iPod touch, so users tech fans that don’t possess a smart phone yet, can enjoy this application as well.
On top of all the other cool features clicker allows a user to keep up with social media. Users can us the “check-in” feature on foursquare to show that they are watching a show or movie! Users can also see what is trending and which one of their friends have “checked-in” to a show as well.
See, it is possible to watch show on the way home from a tournament, shopping trip or even in class! Clicker is a great way to keep on top of your busy schedule and make forty-five minutes for yourself.
