The week's best iPhone apps

IntoNow: It's like Shazam and Foursquare for TV. Just hold up your phone to any TV show from the last five years or so (or any movie that's been broadcast on TV) and it'll tell you what episode you're watching. Crazy. Then, you can announce what you're watching to your friends. Free. Check out the rest of this week's best iPhone apps here.

The week's best iPad apps

Pennant: Pennant is the most beautifistastic way to re-live past baseball seasons. There's so much baseball information presented in such a g-g-g-gorgeous way that I'm crying tears of joy, rainbows and Willie Mays. $5. Check out the rest of this week's best iPad apps here.

IntoNow is the weeks best? It has no real purpose, no entertainment value and isn't art so why is it so great? I mean, I get what it does but there's no benefit to that. Every cable or satellite box has an on screen guide that tells you what you're watching already.
