Viggle free iPhone, iPad app rewards loyal TV viewers

The next time a family member or phone call interrupts you while you’re watching television you can now tell them, “Sorry, not now, I’m working.”

A loyalty program known as Viggle introduced its first free app in the iTunes app store on Wednesday. The company will be rewarding people with gift cards, music, and movie tickets for watching television.

When you tap the screen, according to the Associated Press, Viggle's software for iPhones and iPads recognizes the program a person is watching and credits them about two reward points a minute. Users can even earn credits on recorded programs.

Mail Online reports that Viggle has a number of retailers offering rewards, including Burger King, Starbucks, iTunes, CVS, Best Buy, Sephora, and Fandango. The company is offering 1,500 bonus points just for signing. When a user accumulates 7,500 points, they earn a $5 gift card.
