Calling all TV psychics! Have you ever sat around watching a TV show and suddenly realized you knew exactly what was going to happen next? As you piece together the plot points, do you immediately want to share your brilliant insights with anyone who will listen? We've all been there, with no one to appreciate your strike of genius and incredible ability to predict the future of your favorite shows, your keen intellect seems wasted. But don't worry, now you can signal the exploding cannons and fireworks because we've created a web application, called Insticator, where you can do just that; make predictions about your favorite TV shows, share your superior perception with others and win prizes for correct answers (aka, correct insticating.)
Using Insticator is simple; just follow your favorite TV shows and respond to the predictions for the coming episodes via the Insticator app. Each prediction requires you, the users, to take a position on a certain aspect of the show. Predictions can range from questioning the survival of a relationship between two characters to something much more dramatic like who will die at the end of that season. For example, let's say you're watching Breaking Bad and you are certain that a main character is about to be killed off. All you have to do is log in to the app, find the prediction relating to your theory and take a stance by selecting one of the options. If the question is, "Will Walt die by the end of season 5?" You simply select "Yes" or "No" and if your belief is correct, you win points to trade in for prizes! You will receive points for every correct guess you make, although the point value is different for each question depending on the difficulty of the prediction at hand. Even if you get the question wrong, we'll still throw you some pity points just for trying. By building up your points overtime, you are able to cash them in for prizes on our rewards page. More points = bigger and better prizes, so the more correct predictions you make, the sooner you can get your hands on the best prizes. Go ahead, tell your parents they were wrong, watching TV really does pay off!
We are uploading new shows and predictions every day so be sure to check back often. After each new episode of your favorite show, predictions will be added so you can make guesses while the episode is still fresh in your mind. You will have the option to share your predictions over social media as well, so all your friends will know who is really the smart one in your group. If your friends aren't into the same shows as you, no need to fret, the comments section below each prediction will give you the ability to discuss your favorite shows with people who are equally as passionate as you are!
