Valley App of the Week: Zeebox

Posted: Updated:

Zeebox is an app the creators describes as "a next-generation TV guide."

It's been downloaded more than 5 million times and was rated one of the year's best apps for Apple and Android in 2012.

The heart of the service is the guide.  When you login you set it to your location and cable or satellite provider.

You can search up to a week ahead and if you find something that looks interesting just click on the show to get more information, download related apps, see what people are saying on social media and even set a reminder on your phone so you don't miss it.

Want more info on a show you're watching right now?

Zeebox will listen to your TV for you and figure out what's on.  Then you can check out one of my favorite features the live "Zeetags."

The app scans closed-captioning services, finds words being used in the show and searches the internet for related material.

So if you're watching the Today Show, and they're talking about some hot new fashion item, the Zeetag will tell you where to buy it or even let you buy it right there on your couch.

Zeebox also let's you interact with your favorite shows with live polls and games or chat with other people who are watching.

If you catch most of your prime time TV on your DVR, the newest version will listen in, recognize the show and replay Zeetags and Tweets in your feed just like you were watching live.
