Netted | An App to Prevent Spoilers


More than once you’ve attempted to institute a social media blackout to prevent seeing spoilers on Twitter and Facebook.
 
And more than once you’ve failed.
 
No more, thanks to Spoiler Shield. The new app for iPhone and Android combs your Twitter and Facebook feeds and censors out spoilers for shows you’ve selected.
 
If it’s safe to view the message, simply double-tap to lift the blockade.
 
Currently, the app protects a select group of reality shows, primetime dramas, and major league sports, with new additions being made all the time.
 
It’s enough to make you feel spoiled.
