While it is true that photo apps are in high demand and, therefore, a dime a dozen, we were still surprised to find out that rapper Snoop Lion (formerly Snoop Dogg) decided to branch into the market himself. In partnership with Upper Playground, 99centbrains and Cashmere Agency, the rapper has officially broken into the smartphone photography game with his new app Snoopify.
The app, which is available for both iOS and Android, allows users to modify their photos with a plethora of Snoop Dogg-style virtual stickers designed by illustrator Munk One. Once your new or existing photos are properly decorated, you can share them via Instagram, Facebook and Twitter alongside the hashtag #snoopifyapp.
Interestingly, this isn’t the first mobile app Snoop Lion has made — The Snoop Lion Reincarnated App for iOS offered fans behind-the-scenes clips and background info about the rapper’s latest album — but this is the first time we’ve seen the well-known rapper extend his influence into the mobile photography game. Not that it doesn’t make sense though; with services like Instagram attracting 100M active monthly users, “Soopified” photos are basically free advertisement.
The app comes with a selection of stickers for free, while supplemental packs will cost you $1 a piece. You can download Snoopify for free on both the iTunes App Store and Google Play at their respective links.
