Jared Allen iPhone App: Mullets Have Never Been More Fun.

Jared Allen is one of the rare NFL superstars that seems to have a lot of fun and doesn’t take himself too seriously. One could just image that fun follows Jared Allen where ever he goes. Now, you can take that fun with you with the Official iPhone App.

The Jared Allen App is created by the same group (Rock Software) that makes the iPhones apps for Ochocinco and Terrell Owens, and has many of the same basic features. As with the aforementioned apps, there is a basic Bio, general sports news, twitter, pics, and jams where you can purchase some of Jared Allen’s favorite songs. Note: I had tried this App a few months ago and couldn’t get it to work at all with iPhone OS 4, but with a recent update to version 1.1.1, everything seems to be working fine now.

The Sound Bites section has a selection of sound clips from Allen such as “Business up front, party in the back,” “God Bless America,” and  “I grill what I kill.”

The American Flags section is actually a really nice pictorial history of American Flags with brief explanations. I’m a student of history found this surprisingly informative and interesting.

… and a dictionary of some of Allen’s favorite words and phrases.

The coolest feature is the Mullet Generator. Take a picture of you or your friends and add preloaded mullets, facial hair, and/or hats. It’s easy to resize the mullets using the multi-touch function on your iPhone or iPod. I just had to see what Tiger Woods would look like with a mullet.

You can even share your creation through Twitter or email.

The Jared Allen App, particularly the Mullet Generator, is actually pretty fun. Much like the other Rock Software apps, if you are just a casual fan of the player, you probably won’t get much more than a few minutes of enjoyment from the app, but fans of Allen (and the Vikings) will probably really enjoy it. The App is free, so you really have nothing to lose.

Update 9/16/2010: The Jared Allen Official App has recently been updated and the iAds have now been removed.
