Go Mobile for the Academy Awards Oscars App for iPhone

At long last, the Oscars are finally here this Sunday the 26th! Many folks will participate in office pools or have viewing parties where trying to guess who will win can actually overshadow the actual show. Of course, ABC is hip to this and has created an official Oscars® app for 2012 (available only in the U.S.). Some of the functionality includes predicting winners from the nominations and keeping up to date with all-things-Oscars up until the night begins. During the show, you’ll be privy to more than a dozen live backstage and Red Carpet video streams. You’ll also have access to the "My Picks" game, where you predict the winners and share your predictions with friends.

The app is available for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. You can use it in two different ways: WATCH mode allows you to sit back, grab the popcorn and enjoy Apple’s live hosted experience on the Red Carpet and Backstage. You can also switch to DIRECT mode and pick any of the six camera vantage points and zoom in to whatever action you want to see.

Check out this video below from ABC, or download the app here.
