After taking home the Android "2011 Best App Ever" award for its 106 & Park app, BET Networks has released its BET Awards '12 app — a fun, interactive way to view and participate in this year's awards ceremony.
The app was designed to enhance the viewer's overall experience of the long-running annual award show. For instance, "The Lineup," a unique "co-viewing" experience on the app allows users to predict the order of the performers before the show starts for a chance to win prizes, including a celebrity gift bag, autographed T-shirts and the official BET Awards' 12 microphone. Also, a shuffle hockey game included in the app rewards viewers with more votes for their favorite artists as they move up in skill level.
In addition to the games and interactive experience, the BET Awards '12 app features thousands of photos and details on every nominee, winner, honoree and memorable moments throughout the show's twelve year history.
"Following the success of the 106 & Park app, we knew our audience expected a game-changer around the celebrity-packed BET Awards. So we went deeper into the vault than we've ever gone before and created incredibly innovative and engaging co-viewing experiences that take the live show experience to a new level," says Martez R. Moore, Executive Vice President of Digital Media Group, BET Networks. "There is nothing like the BET Awards '12 app available in the market today."
The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Android and is available for download now.
