ABC creates an app that’s meant to be used while you watch TV

ABC’s latest app, My Generation, lets you interact with the ABC documentary show of the same name on your iPad while you watch.

Using your iPad’s microphone, the app syncs up with the show as you watch and supplements it with extra context-sensitive information such as polls, quizzes, and character bios, all based on what’s currently happening on-screen.

It’s a bold move — one that suggests that TV networks might soon be getting on board with the idea that more and more consumers spend their leisure time multitasking. You’re already using your iPad as you watch TV, right? So why not use your iPad to enhance your TV experience?

Click here to experience My Generation for yourself.
