Phone Tap: Which Celebs Need A Mobile App?


Artists like T-Pain, the Roots, Nicki Minaj and RZA have all occupied mobile streets with iPhone and Google apps aimed at text-crazed fans. VIBE proposes a few unreal additions that could spice up the market

APP NAME: Birdman’s Birds With Friends
THE PITCH: Groupies aren’t exactly an endangered species, but now there’s a speedier way to locate the game’s most skilled vultures. A built-in GPS functions to fi nd Baby’s birds (and their friends) to ensure artists never have another #lonelytweet-worthy night on tour. (Still in beta. Should you encounter Kat Stacks, please say “the baby” and abort app immediately.)
