[With comedian Affion Crockett's first-ever mobile application now available, Fig1 app developer Matt Bijarchi gives you his Top 5 reasons to download this fun tool ASAP.]
1. Mr. Funnyman
The first reason you should get this is because it's funny. Affion is funny and [the app] makes for a good laugh. It's really something that you're going to love [if you've seen] all of Affion's impersonations. This entire project has taken about eight months. He had a lot of other projects going, but the other thing is he wanted to be smart about it. A lot of people come out of nowhere and put out an app. Affion is smart and he knew he wanted to take his time working on this. He wanted to make sure there were different [aspects to the] app, which could get refreshed so that when people went [re-opened it], there's new content. He really wants to invest in these different channels of the app.
2. This Is How We Do It
The second reason is because it's an application that you can use all year. Comedian Kevin Hart's app is great, but it's a one issue app. We worked really hard for Affion's app to make chanels that can get updated consistently. So you're going to see an Affion's advice section where he answers fans questions via social media. People can post questions and he can answer them via the app. So every quarter of the year, you're going to have a new set of Affion's advice; from dating to health, he'll answer it all. We also have all of his YouTube videos. You're going to be able to see all of his impersonations. Normally he would release the video on YouTube first, but what he's doing now is going to exclusively show it off in the app. Then about a week later, it'll go on YouTube. So with this app, you know you're getting the freshest content.
3. How Do You Do, Sir?
There's this other feature on there where it's a radio show and he impersonates this British guy named Aff Samuels who interviews all of the usual suspects from Jay-Z to Lil Wayne to Kanye West. It's just a fresh take on his comedy where he not only imitates famous musicians but he creates an original character. He plays off of himself and really does it well.
4. Shootin' Stars
The fourth reason is because there's a feature we're calling "Star Cards". It's basically a greeting you can send a friend saying "Happy Birthday" or "Congratulations" e-greeting card from Affion.
The final reason is because this is Affion's first foray onto the mobile front. If you remember Affion was born as a digital personality. He's one of these rare people with 40 million YouTube subscribers. He was born online. I think that speaks to his talent, that he's really funny. He goes to where people are. He's got a very unique talent. He doesn't do stand up like Kevin Hart does. He does a very specific type of comedy that only a very certain group of people can do. So I think what's exciting is Affion is going to be on top of mobile just as he's been on top of YouTube.
