Enhance Your Television Experience with IntoNow by Yahoo!

 

Yahoo! has dropped another app into the Android Market today with the release of the television-centric IntoNow.  Ever walk into someone's living room and wonder what show they were watching?  IntoNow will tell you the name of the show, the episode title and synopsis, cast info, and more details from any show from TV over the last five years.  We just tried this with a few shows on our DVR and it recognized every single one, even stuff from just last night.  By the way, Storage Wars was fantastic as always.

A simple press of the green button shows the app listening to the TV, much like Shazam or SoundHound does for music.  Once identified, it gives users the ability to share results over Facebook, twitter, search IMDb for additional information, and much more.  Follow friends to see what they are watching, leave comments, add shows and movies to your Netflix DVD Queue/Instant Queue.

Simply put, this is one of those apps that "wow" you.  Try it a few times and watch how incredible the system is and how much cooler your TV experience gets!  IntoNow is free to download and works on all devices running Android 2.1 or higher.

  • Features of IntoNow include:
  • Identify live TV, or anything that’s run on TV in the last five years, from your television, computer or mobile device.
  • Get full episode and cast information.
  • Receive notifications when your friends are watching the same episode or show.
  • One-click access to IMDb so you can learn more.
  • Add new friends using Facebook, Twitter, or “search by name.”
  • Discover new shows by exploring what other friends are watching
  • Receive notifications when friends are watching the same episode / show
  • Comment on what friends are watching – within the app, or on Facebook and Twitter
  • Add shows and movies to Netflix DVD Queue or Instant Queue with a single tap
  • Find out all the details, ratings, previews and more from the best source available on the web – IMDb

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

Microsoft acquires iPhone email app Acompli

After accidentally announcing it a little early, Microsoft is officially confirming it has acquired email startup Acompli. The surprise acquisition means Microsoft is picking up a powerful email client for iPhone and Android in another move that further cements CEO Satya Nadella’s focus on cross-platform technologies. The Verge’s Casey Newton called Acompl "the Outlook for iPhone that Microsoft hasn’t yet built," and it seems Microsoft was equally impressed with the powerhouse email app. "We’re excited about what’s possible as we build on the app’s success and bring it together with work currently in progress by the Outlook team," the company said in a statement. "Our goal is to deliver fantastic cross-platform apps that support the variety of email services people use today and help them accomplish more." Recode first reportedthat Microsoft would make its latest acquisition official today; the company is said to be paying over $200 million for Acompli.

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…
