    I work for CBS and we are launching a Survivor app that follows the show and allows you to update your fantasy tribes from the app. It's a little niche for it's intended audience, but the new Survivor season that starts on Thursday is featuring the Palm Pre in a big way. Like at one point in the show at the end the losing tribe or something is given a Palm Pre to do something with. I really don't know the whole gist of it, I just know sprint has a big sponsorship in the show.

    Oh cool! Not a follower of the show, but it is nice to see interactivity like that.

    Not doubting that you do work for CBS, but you gotta watch what you give away about the show...lol. But yeah, Sprint is a big sponsor of Survivor, and during last season, we all hoped that the Pre would make an appearance. Turns out it was the Instinct S30 instead. It's cool that they will have an App for Survivor since I do actually follow that show **hides in the corner**

    Cool, thanks for sharing. I'd REALLY love a "How I Met Your Mother" app, though! Maybe watching episodes or something. Anyways, thanks again and I can't wait for the 24th!

    What the heck would it do? I can understand a Survivor app as it's based on a game, therefore, the app itself might be a game of sorts, but "How I Met Your Mother?" Daily delivery of pick-up one-liners from Doogie?

    Hey, you're not alone. "Survivor" has been our Thursday family pizza night show ever since the 2nd season. A "Survivor" app for the Pre might be pretty neat.

    Right now, you and the rest of the Survivor fans have a chance to influence life on the Island—and win $10,000—just for voting for your favorite cast member. Only from Sprint. Only on The Now Network.™

    I guess this Survivor Samoa sweepstakes goes with all of this...

    Yes he was, but he was just relaying the info he had at the time. The Survivor app did come out and it's just as he says it is. He posted this before the app was available.

    Oh, wow. What's next... a Road Rules app?

    :shudder;

    Xyg, it seems to be a CBS sponsored app and seems well done. Look at it this way, other companies are taking notice and writing apps. Better on the Pre than on the Iphone.

    I can only begin to guess what other CBS programming will be forthcoming...maybe a CSI app, in three different flavors?!? how about a Katie Couric app?!?
    Don't panic, there will be plenty of time for that later.

    Is there going to be an Update for the current season? Starts tonight and I haven't seen the update.

    (scratches head) Survivor had a Pre app last year too. I had it.

    Personally, I would be happy with a Slingbox app!
