It seems everyone who’s anyone is coming out with apps these days. Kim Kardashian and her sisters have already topped the charts and earned millions with their games, so it’s no wonder that other celebrities and musicians would try their hand at making their own. With apps that range from a greeting card maker to a photo-editor, you might be surprised by the celebrities behind them!
Snoopify – Snoop Dogg
No, it’s not a Spotify clone nor a Snoopy game. Snoopify is actually a photo-editing and photo-sharing app that lets you customize your photos by putting stickers on them, much like stickers on Facebook or Viber. This time, the stickers features various shades, “bling,” marijuana paraphernalia, and Snoop Dogg himself. The app itself are free, but you have to pay for the sticker packs – including one of a “golden jay,” that costs $99. (Yes, people have actually bought the $99 sticker.)
Taylor Swift Greeting Card Mobile App
You’d think someone as busy as Taylor Swift wouldn’t have time for yet another business venture, but it seems like she just can’t let another opportunity pass. In 2009, she designed a line of greeting cards for American Greetings and, a couple of years later, she released an app that’s essentially its online version. You could choose a card, write your letter, and send it to your friend… all while her lyrics play in the background. Unfortunately, the app has been discontinued as of this writing.
For a more personal touch, Jed Madela created an app for his fans. After his “All Requests” concert, he still continuously received requests from fans for videos or songs they wanted to hear from him. A YouTube channel was the immediate option but he wanted something different, and so he came up with creating a mobile app. On the app, he posts these videos, along with photos as well as blog entries.
Britney Spears: American Dream, Demi Lovato: Path to Fame, Katy Perry Pop
These three games follow a similar path: after customizing your character, you start as a “nobody” in the music world, talk to a couple of people, make decisions, and work your way up to celebrity status. We’re guessing it all depends on which pop idol you’re more a fan of, really…
