People either love or hate Jimmy Fallon. Red Sox fans got to do both. They loved Jimmy when he helped turn Nick Hornsby's Fever Pitch, a book about an obsessed soccer fan, into a movie about an obsessed Red Sox fan. They hated him when he changed the end of the movie and brought cameras on field during the Red Sox celebration for winning the 2004 World Series.
The LNJF (Late Night With Jimmy Fallon) iPad app gives you the chance to decide how you feel about him. Most of the content is pulled from the after-hours show. You'll find videos of skits, guest interviews, his regular Pros & Cons and other general nuttiness. The app also delivers photos, blog entries from Jimmy and other guests and a schedule of upcoming guests and music artists.
For me, the best part of LNJF is the Jimmy's Phone section. It turns your iPad into an oversized-iPhone that features all of Jimmy's personal stuff. The apps are hilarious. iBanana lets you peel and eat a full-sized banana. Are You in Moldavia? uses your iPad's location technology to find out if, in fact, you are in Moldavia. And, Axl Roses' Relaxation Tapes, in which Axl's gravelly warble serenades you over the soothing background sounds of rain, crickets, waves crashing on the beach and more. The app promises future features showing Jimmy's texts and contacts.
Jimmy says the app will be a key way that viewers can interact with the late-night talk show. Fans will love it. Others will hate it. In the meantime, I must go peel a banana.
