Getting sucked into a mini-series may be cool especially when you can gloat around the watercooler about the 67 hours of life you lost watching a TV show.
But spring-boarding from the success of eyeball-addiction "what are you doing" apps twitter and facebook combined with the vanity of see-where-I-am-this-instant location is apps like foursquare and gowalla, PHILO aims to help TV-watching get even more interesting allowing you to waste time watching TV… with friends!
Presumably getting its name from inventor of television Philo T. Farnsworth, PHILO aims to "make TV social (again) by letting you connect with your friends and watch, chat, score points, and win awards and credits together."
You can browse around television shows and see what your friends are watching and saying, what’s popular, what’s on that you may like based on what you’ve watched, or scroll through a guide to see what else is on. Once you find something you like…. Tune-in!
