What's New

Fixes issue where Facebook friends' comments occasionally did not appear as expected on My Friends timeline view.

**Also includes all of the recent updates in V 1.71:**

Fixed Facebook compatibility bugs so you can again log in using Facebook, share individual comments to your FB timeline tagged to time-in-show, and read/reply to comments posted by your FB friends. Updated to iOS 9.x for compatibility with latest iPad and iPad Pro models including Apple keyboards and pencil.

App Description

Sidecastr replays time-shifted live-to-broadcast tweets across a growing archive of 1000s of top TV shows, seasons and episodes, and lets you like, reply and tweet new comments even when you're not watching live TV.

Using your iPad's mic to stay in sync with whatever covered show you're watching on your primary streaming device (TV, laptop, iPhone, etc), Sidecastr uses the '2nd screen' of your iPad to play back a representative sampling of tweets filtered in from our Twitter feed at an episode's first-aired date, hand-curated on the fly into categories, and replayed in sync to the exact time-in-show you're watching at a target display rate of 6 to 10 comments per minute.

Sidecastr's live syncing and comment stream filtering adds a less than 10 second delay to the live twitter stream, making it the perfect TV companion app for live as well as time-shifted TV. Our objective in filtering is not to sanitize or bias for one point of view but to capture a representative sampling of all opinions being expressed, minus comments that are redundant, blatantly promotional, or spoilers.

ABC
The Bachelor
The Bachelorette
