Take That Messi
Christiano Ronaldo may long be known as the world’s No. 2 soccer player behind a certain midfielder for Barcelona FC, but at least now he has his own official app. Developed by self-service mobile app platform Mobile Roadie, the new offering for iOS and Android devices touts the latest news, exclusive content and images of Ronaldo. It also offers access to the Real Madrid star’s musing on Twitter and Facebook and sponsored contests.
The company has also previously developed a Ronaldo-themed game app that sells for $2.99. Mobile roadie has helped create similar apps for celebrities including Katy Perry, Madonna, Taylor Swift and Linkin Park. What about Messi? There are third-party apps dedicated to the three-time Ballon D’Or winner, but for now it looks like Ronaldo is the first to boast an his own “official” app. Well, that some consolation for laboring in Messi’s shadow.
