Hot on the heels of the news that Days of our Lives has launched a podcast comes the announcement that the NBC soap opera is launching a free, interactive mobile app.
Described as the ultimate fan portal, the DOOL app will give viewers more of the show they love with everything from fan-favorite moments, to behind the scenes videos and photos, to various trivia and games to test their DAYS knowledge. The app will also feature an exclusive video vault with access to some of show's most memorable and notable clips.
"We are excited that after more than two years in development, we are now able to offer a free, interactive destination that will provide more fun and fresh content for the fans of Days of our Lives," says Greg Meng, DAYS' co-executive producer.
