  • tvtag also has their own smartphone app (for all major smartphones including the iPhone and Android devices), and a mobile-based website that will allow you to check-into many entertainment items.
  • If you've ever been awarded a sticker for a show one year, and the sticker is a once-lifetime (unchanging by year show)-you'll never earn the sticker again, in any subsequent years. however, in the cases of New Years NYC ball drops (where the listings list the year), you can check in in subsequent years and earn additional stickers that are geared to these subsequent years.
  • As you check into items, you'll be awarded along the way, with things tvtag calls Stickers. Some are for special times, while some aren't and tend to be the same no matter what time you check into the item, and are dependent on the amount of times you use the check-in consecutively.
  • tvtag doesn't just have entertainment items. They also have a variety of holiday and things to "think about" to along with celebrities and whatnot. Therefore, you can check into TV shows and sports, movies (at a theater or at home), music-libraries/podcasts, books/eBooks/magazines, video games/websites/website games/board games, along with these other features, so there is a lot of stuff to check into with this site. You'll never get bored with it.
  • Special "stickers" are awarded for certain special check-ins (holidays and holiday shows), along with other stickers for multiple check-in times for certain things.
