Track Ochocinco’s Every Movements With Your iPhone

chadjohnsonpicFINALLY! Fans who weren’t satisfied with his exploits on Twitter, UStream and myriad other modern communication services now have ANOTHER way to follow Chad Ochocinco and his exploits — like paying hookers with checks that bounce — his own iPhone app.

Developed with the aid of Bengals backup QB (and brother of starter Carson) Jordan Palmer fans can, for the low price of $4.99 follow everything Ochocinco does, from his tweets, photos and videos to asking advice on dating or whatever. They can also send him their own photos and track where he is each day he’s on the road.

Palmer, who started an iPhone app company somewhat recently considers this app to be their most ambitious yet. He also said that they are in the process of making a similar app for fellow loud-mouth receiver Terrell Owens.

For the Cubs Fan Who Needs Constant Reminders of Futility

cubbietimeP.J. Tanzillo, a software designer with Bearded Pony who is originally from Chicago recently created a new app for all you Cubs fan iPhone users out there; CubbieTime, an app that keeps track of the time since the Cubs last won the World Series.

From the developers’ description of the app:

How long can the biggest let down for the biggest sports town in America go on? Right now it has been 101 years 1 month 29 days 14 hours 36 minutes and 27, 28, 29 seconds… you get the picture. The Chicago Cubs are the lovable losers of major league baseball.
Not only does Northside Clock act as your NIGHT STAND CLOCK and ALARM CLOCK, it also gives you the exact amount of time since October 14, 1908 — the last time the cursed Cubbies won the big one AND acts as a DIRECT NEWS FEED for everything Cubs – the most loved team in MLB.

I don’t see why the Cubs like losing so much, the Red Sox used to do it, but then we decided to start winning and it’s much more enjoyable. The Cubs should make a similar decision. In the meantime, spend the $.99 to buy this app if you want, and if you do, tell Bearded Pony to kick in something to me.
