Scoop: App-solutely Amazing Bones News

It’s the Bones hook-up we’ve been waiting for!

In an effort to enhance fans’ viewing experience, Fox has launched the Bones Show Companion, a new iPad app that will automatically synchronize with the current episode as its broadcast in each time zone to provide content that is both wholly unique and pretty freakin’ cool.

Beginning with Thursday’s episode, iPad-owning Bones loyalists (who can download the app for free at the Apple App Store) will have access to such real-time bonus material as…

* A countdown clock that marks the time remaining until a new episode of Bones airs.

* My personal favorite: A translator that converts Brennan’s (and the squints’) geek-speak into, you know, English.

* The Angelatron, a handy guide to the data and information Angela uses to help solve the case, including sketches and crime-scene recreations.

* Sweets’ Final Thoughts, where Sweets provides his analysis of the case and perspective on the lives of the characters.

* A Royal Diner jukebox that identifies the songs and artists featured in each episode.

* A poll that invites users to weigh in on the case in each episode.

* An overview of social-networking chatter so viewers can see and contribute to commentary on Twitter and Facebook.

Bones Spoiler Alert: Look Who’s Being Written Out!

Users will also be able to access app content while watching Bones on their DVRs, Fox.com and Hulu.com. Even better, each episode brings new features.

Cue the Apple App Store stampede!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Android is big enough that we need this app also. Im a mother of 4 who can not currently work so the ipad is not an option for me an my family. Seriously! Even when I was working 2 jobs I had more important things to spend my money on instead of always trying to keep up with the latest”big thing”. Seriously… We are not all born into money like breenan and a few others on the show. BRING ON THE DROID VERSION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pls
