And so, there are a growing number of apps popping up that help users navigate their TV program guides."</em></p><p><img height="450" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1325902484.usr105634.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="600" /></p><p>I pretty much use the <a href="http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tv-guide-mobile/id333647776?mt=8" target="_blank">TV Guide app</a>, which is also universal,&nbsp;when I need to check out what is going to be up next on the box, but I kinda like the interface with <a href="http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dijit-universal-remote-tv/id391065642?mt=8" target="_blank">this app</a>. This one also adds Facebook, Wikipedia and YouTube integration as well as giving you a remote control interface. To use the remote you need an IR adapter however.&nbsp;</p>
