The alliance of Jersey Shore’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and mobile app company Apps Genius Corp (APGS) is changing the celebrity app game for good!
Polizzi and APGS teamed up for the first of a series of apps for “Snooki,” where all of the 6.6 million ‘Jersey Shore’ fans who tuned into the season four finale can “Snookify” their friends by taking personal photos and adding some of Polizzi’s famous looks, including her famous pouf, accessories, outfits, and even a spray tan!
In the 3 1/2 weeks since “Snookify Me” was launched, the APGS stock sky rocketed 800%! In those weeks, Polizzi appeared on popular television talk shows including Wendy Williams and Conan O’brien where she promoted the app, and the fans are loving it! There are more than 7.8 million references to “Snookify Me” on the web already.
The train will only keep on rolling from here. In addition to the seven more Snooki apps that have already been contracted between Polizzi and APGS, there’s been a growing interest from other celebrities who are anxious to hop on board.
APGS CEO Adam Kotkin recently said in a press release, “We have seen significant interest from celebrities and agents looking to monetize their social brand. In the wake of the debut of ‘Snookify Me!,’ we are getting an overwhelmingly positive response from app users and celebrities.”
Smart phone and mobile apps are the new norm, and celebrities are a major player in many people’s daily lives as well. APGS is bringing them together, and they can only go up from here. Can’t wait to see what’s next!
