Los Altos, California – yap.TV today announced the release of version 2.0 of its popular social TV application by the same name, now shipping for iPhone and iTouch. yap.TV delivers a unique experience for fans that love TV shows by offering a full picture-based TV show guide, streaming tweets for every show, Twitter client features, interactive polls, show favorites with show times, and much more.

yap.TV is focused on developing real-time features that create fun, shared experiences around TV content for TV fans, as demonstrated by interactive features like polls, Twitter and Facebook social network integration, and group “living rooms.”

yap.TV launched on the iPad this September to much fanfare, and hosted a live event with Apple co-founder Steve “Woz” Wozniak and TV show fans of “The Big Bang Theory” to yap about his guest appearance, a first in the social TV space.

    TV Everywhere, who would have thought this would come so quickly! With the new Sling Adapter streaming my shows to my iPhone. I am flying all over the place for work travel and feeling like a piece of home is right there with me. I know it sounds funny put that way, but we all have our favorite shows that captivate us and give us a jolt. I have worked for DISH for a while and learned that as new technology comes down the pipe line we will all have a front row seat. If you have not checked out this new technology, go for it. It Rocks!!
