IntoNow from Yahoo! functions on the premise that watching television should be a communal experience. The app, in part, is like having SoundHound for TV. When launched, it listens to the show playing, and seeks out that specific pattern to find the specific episode being watched. Once identified, a panel opens showing how many users watched the episode, a one-line synopsis and a cast list, but only the regular cast, not guest stars.

While watching live or recorded programs, fans can chat with other users and their friends who use the service – spoiler alerts included – or check out the buzz on Twitter. For sports the app even has stats.The app is also a TV discovery tool. IntoNow’s appealing GUI and the “something new” factor could really change how people watch live and recorded TV.

PLAY by AOL Music

Touted by AOL, Inc as “the premier music application of 2011,” PLAY plans on being a, pardon the pun, player in the current streaming music war for the hearts and ears of iOS and other mobile device users across the planet, hitting 250,000 downloads in the first three weeks on Android OS alone.

PLAY by AOL Music is positioned by the company to be a social music portal though which users can listen to music and share with friends. It’s powered by partner Rdio, and interfaces both directly with users’ own iPod/iTunes files on their device as well as with SHOUTcast radio and other AOL Music properties, like CD Listening Party and MP3 of the day. Non-Rdio members will be able to hear previews of tracks shared with them via the PLAY app, while those with an applicable Rdio membership will be able to listen to the whole song. All users will of course be able to buy songs shared with them on iTunes. While other apps help music lovers share what they are already playing, PLAY helps fans find music and THEN share it, a subtle difference in approach that may help this app become the more successful of similar app offerings.

Other features include adding custom album art to shared music, Facebook and Twitter integration for both discovery and sharing modes, and the ability to both tag and comment on shared music.

Whether this will become the definitive social music sharing app or service for consumers remains to be seen. Apple’s own Ping service hasn’t taken off, which could be attributed to a lack of interest in sharing music or just a limited Apple-only service. PLAY is cross platform and also powered by two of the larger brands in the space, AOL Music, and Rdio, one of our favorite streaming music services, facts which may, in part, help us all answer this little conundrum of the music sharing world.

iPad Only App - Designed for the iPad
Flipboard hits a home run with its sharp visuals and excellent interface, but loses points for being more of a novelty than anything else.

Tweetie, in our opinion the king of iPhone Twitter clients, has been updated with some really great features — and some Popularity EnhancemEnts (or PEE) that users have been clamoring for.

In what is a first on any platform and an absolute dream come true to the iPhone community, Tweetie, updated tonight to version 1.2, has added two features that users have been asking to be combined into a single app since the iPhone was first released. Loren Brichter, the developer of Tweetie, has answered user demands and released a single app that has the ability to function as two of the most popular apps in the app store. Oh, and it does some Twitter stuff too.

Tweetie is a multiple account capable Twitter client that just nails the user interface. It’s a rock solid and feature packed application. The new version adds some great features like Instapaper integration, a landscape keyboard, swipe controls, block/unblock of users, and draft saving.

Tweetie is a $2.99 Twitter client that, in our opinion, is the best available on the iPhone. The best new feature has to be the new quick swipe control in the UI. You can swipe over a tweet (a twitter message), and quickly reply to, view the details of the user, or mark as a tweet as a favorite. Much quicker than the previous requirement of going to another screen to do those things.

These new features add to the already fantastic full featured interface of Tweetie. I has everything you could need, Twitter search integration, search favorites, multiple accounts, picture integration, location integration, inline web and image viewer, nearby (location services based) searches, and much more.

Oh yeah, and if you go to settings and click advanced and turn the popularity enhancement on, all of your dreams will come true and Tweetie will become the most perfect app, ever.
