Viggle, which pairs a great idea with a funny name, is an app we covered last month during its beta period. The TV check-in app, which has already seen great success on iOS, recently landed in the Play Store though, finally out of beta.

For those not familiar with the app, Viggle essentially listens to your TV's audio (at your command), and figures out which show(s) you're watching by comparing the audio it heard to a database, rewarding points depending on the programming (for instance, promoted shows get more points). Those points can then be redeemed for tangible rewards, including everything from Starbucks gift cards to sweepstakes entries or hulu PLUS subscriptions.

To celebrate its launch, Viggle is holding a giveaway for one million points (that's enough to get 133 Starbucks cards, over 300 redbox rentals, or 46 movie tickets from Fandango) daily that runs until tomorrow, June 28th. Users will automatically be entered in the drawing, and receive additional entries when checking in to TV shows during the promotion.

If you're a couch potato who wants to make TV watching just a little more productive, Viggle is for you. It's totally free from Google's Play Store so just hit the widget below.
