New Release – Auto-Tune The News 1.9
18 February 2010 by Rob Spectre

On 2 July last year, fresh from Boxee’s Developer Contest held in San Francisco, I submitted my very first Boxee application.  Auto-Tune The News first got me hooked on developing on Boxee as I originally wanted to be able to watch The Daily Show, Colbert Report and a couple of my favorite web series on my TV instead of at my desk.  Now seven months, seventeen more apps, twenty-five total releases, that move of dorkly convenience has become my full-time job for half a year.  Making television software has become a strong passion, and it is with great pride that I release a new revision for the app that started me down this road.

Same content, just a better look and feel – everything sounds better auto-tuned!

New Release – Ad Blitz 2010
6 February 2010 by Rob Spectre

IAll the commercials from the big game on Boxeet is the biggest athletic contest of the year for America.  Seats start at five grand, networks fight over the rights years in advance, and millions tune in worldwide as the top two teams in professional football face off after a blistering post season.  With all the hype and attention comes unparalleled advertising budgets, making the Super Bowl the showcase for television commercials of the year.

Want a replay of a particularly funny ad after the game is over? Go no further than Boxee with the latest Gonzee app release – Ad Blitz 2010.  Now available on Boxee, Ad Blitz 2010 will have every commercial aired during the big game available to watch immediately following an resolutely crushing defeat to the hated and hideous Indianapolis Colts.

Before the big game, the app is seeded with preview content a-plenty, featuring analysis on the two teams, how-to’s on executing a perfect Super Sunday party and the troubling story of a man auctioning off something very valuable to get a ticket to the game.

All available now in the Boxee App Library.

The best commercials for the biggest game of the year.

New Release – State of the Union LIVE
27 January 2010 by Rob Spectre

The 2010 pipeline of release is swelling with a boatload of tasty Gonzee apps on their way to a television near you, but it’s already been too long since my last new app release.  To that end, I’m happy to report that a new live event app has been published for all Boxee users for tonight’s State of the Union address by President Barack Obama.

This milestone address for this young presidency comes after a rough freshman year of roadblocks and setbacks and a particularly difficult week that saw the Democrats lose the Senate supermajority they’ve enjoyed in this past year. Obama addresses an electorate with diminished hopes and increased skepticism of the efficacy of the federal government.

His first State of the Union needs to change the game and merits the attention of any American concerned about employment, healthcare, and the condition of our country.  This Boxee app delivers reporting recapping Obama’s freshman year as president and will feature the live feed of the State of the Union address as soon as it becomes live.

Check out the app now in Boxee’s App Library.
