LeBron launches LeBron App


"€œThere'€™s an app for that"€ just took on a whole new meaning.

On Thursday, Samsung launched the LeBron app. LeBron as in James. App as in... app. For your phone.

For the first time ever, there is an actual smartphone app for an athlete and let me tell you, it is intrusive.

From Mashable, here are some of the features included on the app:

"...social updates, videos and photos from LeBron as he gets ready for games, post-game videos and more."

"...photo updates and videos that feature LeBron's kicks, breakfast choices and off-the-court clothing."

"...photos and updates related to LeBron's charity work and his family life."

I'€™m no lawyer but I think LeBron could probably file for a restraining order against anyone who downloads this.

In all seriousness, this is the latest installment in a brilliant PR campaign by Samsung that has tremendously repaired LeBron's image since "€œThe Decision" (well, that and the fact that he's won two championships, two Finals MVPs and two actual MVPs. Funny how that helps).

Between the launch of the LeBron app and the fact that HBO'€™s new show "€œSilicon Valley"€ makes me think I'€™m one great idea away from becoming a billionaire, I started thinking: what if college football players and coaches had their own apps?  

Here are a few suggestions:

Les Miles

A cooking app that allows you to set a timer when making dinner. The only problem is once it gets under a minute it stops working.  

Ron Zook

This app works perfectly when you buy it. Within two years it won'€™t even function.

Dabo Swinney

Only works if you buy the Chad Morris app to go with it.

Stephen Garcia

Need a new game to play at the bar? This app measures your BAC against whatever Garcia's is at that exact time. It'€™s like if drinking had an All-Madden mode.

Todd Graham

One day it'€™s a fitness app. The next day it's a board game. Then it tells you the weather. It'€™s always useful but never stays the same.

Charlie Weis

This app offers you a place to store all important documents, music and other files on your phone. Except then it loses everything.

Ed Orgeron

Even when you turn it off it won'€™t shut up.

Steve Spurrier

No matter which button you click, it re-directs you to the local club'€™s tee times.

Jordan Lynch

It literally does everything at once.

Joker Phillips

Take any picture in your phone'€™s photo album and the Joker Phillips App will automatically Photoshop it for you in Microsoft Paint.

Kevin Sumlin

It'€™s like the world's worst magic-8 ball. Ask it anything, and it always responds "€œYessir!"€

Katherine Webb

*Probably the most profitable idea I'€™ve ever had.
