GetGlue for iPad has arrived and let’s cut to the chase on the social network’s latest app offering.
The main features of the GetGlue iPad App are:
- Check-in to tv shows, movies, music, games, and books
- Share check-ins with your Twitter and Facebook friends
- See what your friends are currently watching, reading or listening to
- Earn leaderboard points and get stickers from GetGlue and major brands
- Rate lists of popular shows, movies, music and books
- Get suggestions for weekly new releases and old favorites picked just for you
- Take your favorite entertainment and suggestions with you everywhere
The GetGlue app takes advantage of the native iPad UI elements and bigger screen. The app creates overlays for conversations, encouraging users to interact with fans and friends around shows, movies, music and books they love. The app also makes it easy to vote directly from the stream, to quickly navigate to profiles, objects details and conversations.
At this point, you may wonder, “what is GetGlue, and what devices is the app compatible with?” We have you covered if you enjoy a good read, or below if you enjoy a good film.
In addition to the launch of the GetGlue iPad app, the service continues to grow with new partnerships and building on existing ones:
FOX: A new partnership with FOX, features rewards for fans of Glee, Bones and two new shows premiering this fall – Raising Hope and Lone Star.
HBO: GetGlue is now permanently placed on show pages on HBO.com. Moreover, a set of new exclusive rewards for Boardwalk Empire and Eastbound and Down are in the offing. Starting today, users will have the opportunity to earn the trailer stickers for both shows, with exclusive rewards for fans who tune in during every episode.
Showtime: New, exclusive, rewards for fans of the biggest show on Showtime – Dexter. Dexter fans will be able to earn the trailer sticker for season 5 and after the premier on Sep 26, fans will be able to earn new stickers for tuning in and following the new season.
PBS: A new, broader, partnership with PBS, including rewards for fans of NOVA, Nature, POV, Charlie Rose, American Experience and Masterpiece. PBS will be also offering special rewards for watching their highly anticipated mini-series – The Tenth Inning, God in America, Circus and Michael Feinstein American Song Book. Rewards for mini-series will be limited only to the users who check-in while watching live.
Universal Pictures: Starting today, GetGlue users will be able to earn Catfish and Devil trailer stickers. Additional rewards will be available once the movies come out in the theaters.
Users of GetGlue no doubt love the service, the launch of the new iPad app, and the announcement of new partnerships. If you haven’t tried GetGlue yet, get after it by signing up. You can find my profile here and delve a little deeper into what I like and don’t like.
