Sidecastr replays time-shifted live-to-broadcast tweets across a growing archive of 1000s of top TV shows, seasons and episodes, and lets you like, reply and tweet new comments even when you're not watching live TV.
Using your iPad's mic to stay in sync with whatever covered show you're watching on your primary streaming device (TV, laptop, iPhone, etc), Sidecastr uses the '2nd screen' of your iPad to play back a representative sampling of tweets filtered in from our Twitter feed at an episode's first-aired date, hand-curated on the fly into categories, and replayed in sync to the exact time-in-show you're watching at a target display rate of 6 to 10 comments per minute.
Sidecastr's live syncing and comment stream filtering adds a less than 10 second delay to the live twitter stream, making it the perfect TV companion app for live as well as time-shifted TV. Our objective in filtering is not to sanitize or bias for one point of view but to capture a representative sampling of all opinions being expressed, minus comments that are redundant, blatantly promotional, or spoilers.
A sample of some of our top covered shows include current and past seasons of:
Dancing with the Stars
Better Call Saul
Fear the Walking Dead
The Walking Dead
The Big Bang Theory
How I Met Your Mother
Jane the Virgin
The Vampire Diaries
So You Think You Can Dance
Pretty Little Liars
Game of Thrones
America's Got Talent
Saturday Night Live
Lip Sync Battle
Sidecastr covers a large and growing list of the top Social TV shows and live sports. Our curated comments are available live-to-broadcast or time-shifted. All shows/seasons/episodes are permanently stored and instantly streamable. Full list at http://www.sidecastr.com/Schedule.html.
Bug fix: optional setting 'Post my sidecasts to Twitter while show is live in my timezone' behaves properly again for top level comments, replies, and 'likes'.
**Also includes all of the recent updates:**
Fixed Facebook compatibility bugs so you can again log in using Facebook, share individual comments to your FB timeline tagged to time-in-show, and read/reply to comments posted by your FB friends. Updated to iOS 9.x for compatibility with latest iPad and iPad Pro models including Apple keyboards and pencil.
