New Year, New Features: GetGlue For Android Gets A Makeover

by claire on January 31, 2012 · Comments

2011 was an amazing year for us here at GetGlue and we’d like to continue that momentum by revamping the GetGlue app for Android marketplace!  The updates will match those of the iPhone app and website, and just in time for all the new mid-season premieres that you won’t want to miss.  New features include a new visual stream, the ability to participate in multiple conversations as well as personalized guides.

New GetGlue for Android

The major new features of the GetGlue for Android are:

  • A new visual stream of check-ins.
  • Ability to participate in multiple conversations.
  • Personalized Guides for TV, Movies, Music and more.

New Stream: A more visual look and feel for the Stream that turns your friend’s entertainment into user generated art. The comments overlaid on top of the images inspire the discovery of new shows, movies and music through friends. You can vote and reply on any check-in right from the stream or tap the entry to get more details.

Real-time Conversation: Each check-in is a gateway to an interesting conversation. The new Conversation screen displays friends and interesting comments from other fans who are checked-in to the same show right now. You can tab through the arrows to to easily switch between several recent conversations. This interface is particularly handy for staying on top of conversations that happen in the evening around all the shows and sports you watch.  Because let’s face it, we are all multitasking like crazy and watching two shows at the same time or listening to music while talking to your friends.  Now you can stay on top of those conversations without having to check-in all over again and the stream is filtered to bring you nothing but the best comments from your friends, the GetGlue community and Twitter so everything is nicely placed into one stream.

Guides: The new Guides help you quickly find things to watch, read, or listen to.  Each Guide is dynamic and created based on personal tastes, friends activity, trends across the GetGlue community, and popular genres.  The Guides are constantly updated with fresh recommendations for shows, movies, and music and make it easy for users to preview, save and discover their next “favorite.”

Download this update right now from the Android Market.

We hope you enjoy these updates as much as we’ve enjoyed working on them.
