Ever used your cable company's TV guide app? Probably not because most of them are total abominations. GetGlue HD fills in what for what those god awful things are lacking, offering a totally personalized couch potato experience.

What does it do?

It's kind of like Foursquare for the boob tube. Sorry if part of you died reading that last sentence. Get Glue HD gives you a personalized TV guide on your iPad that recommends shows you might like and tells you exactly which ones are new, so you're not catching any reruns.

Why do we like it?

If you find it takes days for you to stop talking about each new episode of Mad Men after it airs, you'll like this app. Log in when you tune in, and chat about your favorite shows. Hash out your predictions, discuss plot lines, and don't worry about spoiling it for anyone else. Because god knows you'd be tweeting them otherwise.
