Boxee offers real time conversation App

Real-time conversation for Boxee

Social media center Boxee recently announced a new App – Cliqset. Cliqset offers Boxee users a real time conversation about the video they’re watching. When the Cliqset app starts while the video is playing, it will automatically link you to comments from other people who are watching the video, or who have watched it in the past. It’s good for football fans like me to share opinion with friends about the game 🙂
