Taylor Swift just announced that she’s releasing a new app called The Swift Life. If you can’t get enough of everything Tay Tay-related, you’ll want to download it. It includes exclusive Taylor content like videos, pictures, and even Taymojis (think Kim Kardashian’s Kimojis, except Taylor themed) plus Taylor can comment and like fans’ postings.
It should be available later this year. While you wait, here are a few other celeb apps worth downloading.
Kim Kardashian: Hollywood
See the world through Kim Kardashian’s eyes when you download this game. You’ll tackle red carpets, do photo shoots, and try to make it to the top of the Hollywood food chain. The app continually gets updated based on Kardashian’s real-life adventures and outfits.
Nicki Minaj: The Empire
This game is very similar to Kim Kardashian’s (in fact it was created by the same people) but you’ll join Nicki Minaj in a fight to make your mark on the world of hip-hop. There’s also a messaging component within the game. If you’ve got friends who are playing, you can chat with them.
Britney Spears: American Dream
The makers of Kim Kardashian and Nicki Minaj’s games also collaborated with Britney Spears. You can try to emulate the pop princess’s rise to fame with this game, no interactions with live boa constrictors on-stage required.
Though quite different from the “build your own pop star” type games described above, the Hanx Writer app from legendary actor Tom Hanks is quite amusing. It enables you to turn your iPad or iPhone into an old-fashioned typewriter, complete with the satisfying sound of keys clicking and all.
It’s worth clearing a little space out on your phone so you can download a few of these apps and get closer to your favorite celebs. From chasing Hollywood dreams to clanging away on an old-fashioned typewriter, their apps do it all.
