Couch potatoes can soon earn rewards just for watching television thanks to a new iPad and iPhone app.
Viggle lets you tap the screen of your mobile device, which triggers the app to "listen" to what`s on. It recognizes what you`re watching and gives you credit at roughly two points per minute. Rack up 7500 points, which is about 62 hours.. and you`ll get a $5 gift card from retailers such as Burger King, Starbucks, and Best Buy.
You can earn bonus points for checking into certain shows, signing up and watching ads. The idea behind Viggle is to give viewers another reason to watch, increasing audiences for advertisers.
Versions for Android devices and computers are coming soon.
