Dec 27, 2011

You’ve read about the variety of apps available to turn your TV into your home’s web-connected entertainment hub, with access to games, movies, news, music, and more. But how will apps fit in to your day-to-day life? Can your Samsung TV really enrich your daily entertainment experience? Absolutely, it can!

Here’s how a typical day might look like with your apps:

7:00 a.m. – Roll out of bed and check your financial portfolio’s performance by launching your Stock Charter app. You’ll know at a glance how stocks are performing.

7:30 a.m. – Check the latest news while having your morning coffee. It’s easy to stay informed with the BBC iPlayer app.

10:00 a.m. – Catch up with your baby nephew’s latest antics by video chatting with your family. On some TVs you can log into the Skype app, and enjoy the rich video display. No more awkwardly crowding the family around your laptop for a web chat.11:30 a.m. –Give your brain a workout by playing a few rounds of the wildly popular Sudoku app. Feel free to indulge your puzzle addiction as much as you want; unlike a book of Sudoku, you’ll never run out of fresh games with which to challenge yourself.

1:00 p.m. – Upload all the photos from a recent vacation to share with friends and family. The Picasa app makes it easy to organize, edit, and caption your photos.

3:30 p.m. – Use the Ebay app to search online for the perfect addition to your sports memorabilia or pottery collection. You can browse, watch an item, or hit “buy now” from the comfort of your living room.

6:00 p.m. –Enjoy your favourite tunes while cooking for a dinner party. The Last.FM app acts as an Internet radio that plays the music you love, and can even recommend new songs and artists based on your preferences.

8:30 p.m. – Challenge your friends to a friendly game of poker while you eat dessert. The Texas Hold ‘Em app will keep everyone entertained.

9:30 p.m. – Time to kick back with a movie. The LOVEFiLM app lets you choose from thousands of current and classic movie titles to stream directly to your TV – no need to wait for a lengthy download (or worry about pesky late fees!).

11:00 p.m. – A full day of activities – from games and shopping to music and movies – draws to a close. To plan tomorrow’s schedule, check the weather forecast before bedtime with the handy The Weather Channel app.

With dozens of apps to choose from – and more being added all the time – you’ll find the perfect apps to enrich your lifestyle, and you’ll have more time to do the things you love.
