Apadmi developed the BlackBerry version of the app in 2011, followed by the Android version in 2012 for Tellybug, the creators of the app. Using their deep technical knowledge and experience of both the BlackBerry and Android platforms, Apadmi developed the apps within short timescales to support the client’s marketing plans.

The ‘Tap to Clap’ features enables users to express their thoughts on the performances from home and share the results with other users of the app. The provision of the app’s APIs allows easy integration into social media and communication with the ITV servers to obtain content updates and advert placement. Fans can also get closer to the show; experience back stage footage through exclusive video clips and photos and catch up on all the latest news.
