Stevie expands platforms for social media TV app
Michelle Clancy | 06-12-2013
Stevie, an app that brings social feeds from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube together within personal TV channels, now supports Android and AirPlay for iOS.
iPhone and iPad users who own an Apple TV device can now turn AirPlay mirroring on to run Stevie on their TV sets. And, Stevie is available to its fans on Android mobile phones, tablets, set-top boxes and TV sets. TV viewers can control and flip Stevie channels with their TV remote, on top of the mobile touch experience.
Users can create their own channel by connecting their social feeds to Stevie. Top videos, status updates, tweets, likes, events, headlines and birthdays are all automatically curated into a TV experience, and viewers can then engage with their friends, or tap into any of Stevie's curated channels based on social feeds revolving around lifestyle, design, sports, technology, news, food and others.
In September Stevie released its celebrity tweet TV, allowing fans to follow social TV channels from their favourite celebrity tweets. For example, fans of The Walking Dead, the leading show by tweet popularity as announced by Nielsen, are able to tune into The Walking Dead channel based on the show's official Twitter and YouTube feeds as well as those of individual Walking Dead stars.
