Never worry about spoilers again with the new Spoiler Shield app

We all have that one friend who draws some inexplicable, sadistic pleasure from ruining shows, books and movies for other people. With the advent of social media, the number of these pesky people you have to contend with has multiplied exponentially. You could turn off your phone, go M.I.A from the social-media-verse and refuse any and all kinds of human interaction until you’ve watched the show for yourself, but thanks to Spoiler Shield, there’s a solution that might make you feel and appear a little less insane.

Chances are good that if you’ve followed a big hit show — say Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, or Scandal — at some point the internet has ruined a big plot twist. You’ve got the episode DVR’d at home, waiting for you while you live your life. Then, while checking your Twitter or Facebook timelines, some jerk you follow suddenly spills the beans. All you can do is scream “NO!” to the heavens. You wouldn’t want to seem overly sensitive for deleting someone just for spoilers. Up until now your only options were to avoid social media or deal with the consequences, but now there’s a better way. Spoiler Shield is a free iOS app that allows you to scan your Facebook and Twitter feeds without worrying about unintentionally finding out who killed who this week.
