Smartphones and tablets have changed the way we watch TV. If you’re like most people, then you spend the majority of your TV viewing time staring at your phone, browsing your Twitter feed, or reading commentary about the event from people online.
It’s always interesting to watch the internet during major events, and the 2013 Oscars can certainly be considered a big event. And a new Oscar 2013 app for Android looks to help people interact with the Oscars in more ways than ever before.
The 2013 Oscars app is only available for Android 4.0 devices or later, which means about half the Android community won’t be able to access the app. Here are some of its most popular features that Oscars fans will love:
-News and features during the Oscars 2013 event on February 24
