GoPop is here! Remember that secret BETA testing we talked about? Welp, now it’s here for you all to enjoy! Basically what GoPop is, is a commentary app. We’ve made text commentary tracks for all of Series 1, providing insights, links to canon, fandom jokes, and more. We’re wrapping up on Series 2 shortly, so that’ll be available soon.

Better yet, it’s FREE! Yes, it’s only on Apple products at the moment, but it works on iPhones, iPads, and the iPod Touch.

You’re going to be able to make your own tracks soon as well. Just think, you can make a whole track about all the Johnlock or Sherlolly moments in the show, link to Metas in your comments, and more! That’s still in production, but it’s a taste of what is coming. In the meantime, you can add comments to our track. The more the merrier!
