Team Coco Android app helps you catch up with Conan O'Brien

by Caitlin M. Foyt

If you regularly watch Conan O'Brien on TBS, Team Coco is a great app to supplement that fandom.

In case you missed the latest episode, or would like to rewatch or share some of your favorite moments from the show, the Team Coco app does a pretty good job summing up the highlights. The homepage shows off some content, but the "Videos" and "Photos" tabs, which are organized by date, give you even more to flip through. It also links up directly with the latest content, and shows off Conan's most recent tweets.

The app also takes things a step or two further, and gives you a whole bunch of special-features-like options. If you search under the "Videos" tab, you can see that the app has webisodes, clips from behind the scenes, a live Coco Cam, monologues from the show, music, comedy and sneak peeks of future celebrity guests and content.

In case you don't regularly watch the show, or you're curious who the guests on the show will be, you can click on the "Schedule" tab to be in the know.

One thing I think Team Coco is missing is flexibility in sharing capabilities. You have the option to share funny clips and photos via Facebook and email, but no other social networking sites seem to be included.

After you've downloaded a lot of apps, they all start to feel the same, but there's something distinct about Team Coco. While the interface sticks with standard gray backgrounds with white fonts, it uses color wisely. Subtle light blues and bright oranges jump off the screen, and the app is also filled with tons of vibrant, quality photos and video stills.

One aspect of this app that I particularly appreciate is that all of Team Coco's videos are embedded within the app itself, so I'm not redirected to the web or YouTube if I want to watch a video. Because of that, videos take almost no time at all to buffer.

In fact, there don't seem to be any complications involved with this app. Its easy-to-navigate interface is intuitive and user-friendly. It's a nice app to check out, even if you aren't much of a fan of late-night entertainment. It sets a high standard for how applications should be designed.
