While Brett Favre may always want to reach out and touch someone, an AT&T contract and iPhone would allow him to do plenty more constructive things for his marriage and career. Here are five iPhone apps this smartphone-slinger should download right away.
Whether it be the alleged lewd photographs sent from his smartphone, or the frequent interceptions for touchdowns that have defined the latter part of his career, Brett Favre is not afraid to share things. Rather than air everything out, Favre may be better off living vicariously via this Webby Award-winning gem. Also available via a website, book and upcoming television series on FOX, this 99-cent iPhone app publishes an aerial assault of suggestive and embarrassing texts as well as other social media muck.

Even before this latest episode, Favre was nearly sacked by his wife Deanna for a pattern of philandering behavior. While no diamond was large enough to give Tiger Woods a mulligan, Kobe Bryant helped put his marriage on the rebound with the help of a $4 million ring. Any professional athlete who enjoys playing the field all hours of the day would be served well by tapping into this free iPhone app, which is a variation of the popular online jeweler.
While Brett and Deanna were not the Minnesota couple who were famously “photo-bombed” by a squirrel on a Canadian lake last year, chances are Brett has a few pics in his portfolio that can benefit from digital alteration. This 99-cent iPhone app superimposes the ubiquitous squirrel on photographs, and can throw a flag on any unsolicited encroachment.
With tighter disciplinary standards under NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, Favre’s legendary streak of consecutive games may actually come to an end. With an unexpected four to eight weeks of time on his hands, Brett can curl up with a good book (or download an etiquette instruction manual) from Amazon’s free iPhone app. Kindle is also available in the Android Market.
Despite recently alleged transgressions, Brett Favre remains an American sports hero who will have his choice of announcer and/or studio jobs when he finally hangs up the cleats. With a potential suspension and losing record with the Vikings, Favre may want to brush up on his broadcasting skills sooner rather than later. He can do so with the help of this free iPhone app, which allows users with a 3G or Wi-Fi connection to broadcast whatever they want to an international audience.
Let’s just make sure he knows where the ‘Safe Mode’ button is.
