Want Ochocinco on your iPhone? There
The self-proclaimed "Interesting One", Chad Ochocinco, has taken the social media scene by storm. His Twitter account currently has 250,892 followers and his Ustream show has 3,353 followers and over 180,000 views. So what’s the next logical step for a social media savvy NFL star? Well, now he’s going mobile.
Chad Ochocinco has released an iPhone app entitled the "Ochocinco Experience" (iTunes link). The app provides Chad’s season stats, his Twitter stream, photos and exclusive videos. The app will set you back $4.99, which is a bit steep if you ask me, and I’m a huge Cincinnati Bengals fan.
Below is the app description from Chad’s own personal site…
"Now available through your iPhone and iPod Touch* This iPhone app gives you an exclusive behind-the-scenes look into the life of the most interesting football player, Chad Ochocinco, aka Esteban Ochocinco, aka Chad Johnson. More features and updates coming 10/30/09."

As you can see by the above tweet, Chad states that he is the first athlete with an iPhone app… but we’re not sure if this is entirely accurate. Sure, he might be one the first athletes with an iPhone app devoted solely to him, but his teammate Jordan Palmer, younger brother of Carson Palmer, has a hand in a fairly popular iPhone app. Jordan helped develop RunPee, which is an app that informs cinema goers the most opportune time to venture off to the restroom.
Chad is known for making checklists, but normally he’s checking off NFL cornerbacks… now it seems as though he’s checking off social media sites.
