ABC released My Generation yesterday, an iPad-specific app that offers live interaction during the broadcast of the My Generation TV show. ABC already offers two other popular iPad apps – ABC Player, which offers streaming of a number of the American network’s top shows, and ABC News for iPad.
The My Generation app is unique in that it “listens” to the audio of the My Generation show playing on your TV and synchronizes with it after a short wait. The app will then display show interactive content in sync with what’s happening on the show.
The app’s sync technology connects your iPad to your TV allowing you to participate in real time with the show. Take polls and quizzes, get behind the scenes info. All in real time. No additional equipment required. Turn on your TV, tune in to ABC’s My Generation, launch the app and hit the sync button to get started. You can use the ABC’s My Generation sync app while watching recorded episodes of My Generation as well.
Like the other iPad apps currently offered by ABC, My Generation is free.
