I spent a good amount of time considering the best way to summarize what we've reviewed to date as a precursor to CES. Because I haven't reviewed all of the apps yet or even all of the apps in a particular category (network operators, sports, blu-ray title specific, network specific, Discovery, Social, Simple, etc), I thought it best just to show the scores as they have been published so far, ranking them by the total score of the five categories. I left the sports apps out since they all performed a very specific niche function in the Stimulating category but did little else. In the chart, black represents "none", red represents "low", yellow represents "medium" and green represents "high".
The quick conclusion is that Fanhattan and BuddyTV are way out in front of the other apps. Zeebox, IntoNow, GetGlue and TVplus create a second pack. SOA Gear, Clicker, Rovi, Umami, Yap.TV, BravoNow and USAAnywhere make up a 3rd pack.
Now I am expecting that we will see a ton of updating activity this week at CES. Some of the companies building the apps below have just received new cash infusions (ie Miso) and will be showing off the results soon (we hope).
So, enjoy the current score card and check out the list below the graphic to see which apps are still to come (before the February 22nd conference).
