A year ago, Team Coco released an exciting Emmy Award-winning tablet app that served as a true second screen companion for each episode of Conan, delivering extra content in real time. The problem was that the app was for tablets only. Last week, though, Team Coco released an iPhone and Android version of the app, which will keep the show’s digital team at the forefront of late-night comedy fan engagement.
When you press ‘synch’ on the app, the phone’s microphone automatically detects which episode you’re watching, and then automatically delivers bonus content in real time. The app also allows you to interact with other fans, and includes behind the scenes photos, and show trivia games.
According to Conan O’Brien: “Some say this app is a greater achievement than the development of antibiotics. Actually, only two people said that and both of them died of infectious pneumonia.”
Here’s Conan’s official announcement of the universal Team Coco app:
- An interview with Shazam's new CEO Rich Riley
- The NBA and Viggle launch second screen partnership for the 2013 NBA Playoffs
- What if Twitter launched a #TV app? Here's what it could look like
