The Zeebox TV companion app, which has been available on iPad for quite some time, has just popped up on Google's Play Store, for those who can't stop poking a telephone even when Countdown's on.
The idea behind Zeebox is to bring all those other things we do while watching TV together into one app, amalgamating tweets, news feeds and programme details into one interface. Sometimes it works, sometimes you get hilariously wrong automatically generated news links in the feeds section, but it's been stable on Android so far and moderately distracting from the BBC news channel.
If nothing else, it's a free TV guide and alternate Twitter app. [Play Store]
