Xfactor – An App for Everything
Andy Ruffell / 5 years ago
We’re almost at the live shows in the year’s X Factor competition, and this is where the action really starts to heat up. Which judge will bring it home for their category this year – Louis with the Boys, Sharon O with the Over 25s, Nicole with the Girls or Gary with the Groups?
Even if you decided to skip the preliminary rounds, it’s a good idea to start tuning in and working out who you want to place your best on. X Factor betting has become a bit of a phenomenon with millions of people putting their money where their votes are in a bid to cash in on their favourite.
As usual this year you can follow the competition and X factor bets and tv programmes online as well as on TV, but there are some changes for 2013. You can now download the X Factor app. It’ll give you the chance to get properly involved with the live shows by playing the Fifth Judge Game. This gives you the chance to rate the performances as they happen.
In between shows, you can use your app to predict who you will think will make it through each week, as we get closer and closer to the final. You can also test out your in depth knowledge of the X Factor, both for this series and for previous contestants and seasons.
If you’re good enough you can level up all the way from Couch Potato to x Factor Judge. Like all the best apps, it’s also possible to synchronise your gameplay with your Facebook account. On Facebook you can compare your score with your friends but, much better than that, you get the chance to win the chance to go to a live show and even pretend to be a judge for a while. Yep, you get to sit in a judge’s chair – imagine the feeling of power!
The app will also let you keep up to date on all of the backstage interviews with the contestants and judges and watch your favourite performances over and over again mere seconds after they have been on live TV. The app is free and works on Android and iOS.
You can also check the odds of your favourite contestants online and find out how their performances are affecting their future in the competition. Do you fancy backing the token quirky girl with a guitar? Or are you hoping for a new 1Direction? It’s unlikely you’re hoping for another Matt Cardle or Steve Brookstein but then, experience tells us with the X Factor that talent doesn’t necessarily have much to do with who ends up winning. Either way the app can help you get more involved and work out your best bet for recouping some cash on this year’s competition.
