Build your second screen app with Tellyo’s SDK
“Big brother has broken all Finnish social TV records, receiving 22,000 tweets on their official hashtag during thepremier day. The show peaked at 900,000 simultaneous viewers during the premier. The tweeting peaked when AndyMcCoy came in, at 565 tweets per minute.” [as reported on ArticStartup.com]
“There is no big challenges from Android, iOS” says Mariusz and adds, “the big challenge is the backend which is complicated where one handles clip generation and one handles social interaction etc.” The second challenge is the embedded media within the social stream . The major challenge was because of SSL connection, meta tags for FB/Twitter and various policies that social networks have when it comes to approvals. The experience is varied – Manual & slow approval process on one hand to automated approvals that happen within seconds.
With their vast experience in Social TV, Second screen and the challenges involved in engagement, content packaging and developer tools for second screen apps, Tellyo wants to be the go-to service provider for second screen apps.
