“Best Entertainment App” Award

The Singer Takes It All wins the “Best Entertainment App”

Recognising app excellence and innovation across the ecosystem, the annual Appsters Awards took place in the O2 Arena on Wednesday 12th November hosted by comedian John Robins.

The Singer Takes It All was the world’s first truly interactive show which ran on Channel 4 throughout August 2014. It demonstrated that real-time interaction is both technically possible, at scale, and makes compelling TV. Viewers simply had to press a button on their app, to then see the pay-off on screen just seconds later. The 15% audience engagement level was a new record.

On the first show, 15% of the audience interacted with the show – a record for Channel 4 and Uk television.
2.4 million votes were cast by more than 142,000 viewers.

The show was developed by Endemol, live voting was developed on the award-winning Tectonic Platform and the app was developed by Chunk Games.

Free voting introduced to The X Factor app

XF Free Vote

This year The X Factor fans can vote for free for the first time in the show’s history via App, available for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.
The App is free and so is the brand new voting element.

ITV’s broadcast interactive partner, Tectonic Interactive, has developed the voting service which enables home viewers to vote quickly and easily via their apps.

The service is highly scaled in anticipation of a great response from the home audience. This is another example of ITV working with Tectonic Interactive to create new opportunities for ITV viewers to engage with their favourite show.

If you don’t yet have the App, what are you waiting for? iOS users download the app here and
this one’s for you Android users.
