Do You Smiley-Face That? ABC Working on Feedback App With Emoticons Mashable

ABC is working on an iPhone app that would ask viewers to provide feedback on its shows with emoticons, such as a laughing face, a booing emoticon and one that expresses surprise, reports Mashable.

"When you click each emoticon, you'll also hear a corresponding sound effect. You'll hear sound effects from your Facebook friends whenever they register a reaction as well," the story says.

The app will provide schedule reminders for shows, then provide five emoticons to choose from while viewing.

"We hope viewers find Social Soundtracker to be a personal and interactive way to engage with their friends while watching their favorite video online or on TV,” said Joe Ruffolo, senior vice president for ABC News Digital, in a press release. “It is a completely new way to watch video and engage with content, and we’re excited to learn more about how people use it.
