12 Best TV Apps

The verdict is in: TV watchers regularly supplement their viewing with a second screen, typically a tablet or a smartphone. According to Nielsen’s latest research, 84 percent of smartphone and tablet owners use their devices at the same time as watching television. That’s more than double the numbers from a year ago. While smart TVs have tried to embrace some of these elements of social networking or interactive program guides, ultimately consumers embrace the hand-held convenience of an app on a smartphone or tablet. Here are our top picks to satisfy the app needs of the casual or binge-viewing couch potato.

    My fave is Droid TV Primetime,
    Pretty much every primetime show(even most cable/premium shows like True Blood, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, etc.) are there to be viewed the day after original airing! Plus, some classic oldies from begging to end of run.
    Basically, you turn your device into a DVR. You download them on your SD card so you don’t use precious data (set it to record WiFi only).
    Drawbacks? It’s only showing in 480p. It’s not in play store anymore (now in Amazon). But, at $8.99 for 3 months, NO app can touch it!
    With this, you can finally cut the cable & not miss anything.
