For fans of film and TV star Charlie Sheen, the past 6 months have been quite a turbulent ride. After being fired from his plum role in NBC’s Two And A Half Men, in which he plays a slightly toned down version of himself, he has conducted a one-man rampage against anything remotely ordinary, declaring himself a ‘Vatican Assassin’ who has ‘tiger blood’ and ‘Adonis DNA’. Incredibly, after his now legendary interview with abc News he tested negative for alcohol or drug abuse, leaving no doubt in our minds that this is actually all of his own volition and not influenced by narcotics. He became the first person to reach 1,000,000 Twitter followers in record breaking time and has coined his fantastic catchphrase ‘#WINNING’ to describe his antics; with a private jet flying him and his ever-changing line-up of girlfriends (or ‘goddesses’, as he refers to them), some of whom are porn stars, who could disagree with him?! So, in homage to the Vatican Assassin himself, here are the 5 best Charlie Sheen iPhone apps…WINNING!
1. #WINNING – Developer: Mention Mobile LLC, Updated: Apr 11, 2011, Price: Now Free. Limited Time Only!
When asked by an interview whether his erratic behavoiur could be explained by him possibly being bi-polar, he replied that he was, “bi-winning!” Seriously, this is television gold. Anyway, Mention Mobile have devised an app that will tag any of your pictures with the phrase, ‘#WINNING.’ Pull a hot chick? You’re winning. Fly around the world on a private jet? Definitely winning. Successfully re-negotiate your contract to get $3 Million per episode as opposed to the previous $2 Million? You have won. Enjoy, you Vatican assassins, you.
2. #Winning with Charlie Sheen – Free, Developer: Qbikal Software LLC, Updated: 23 April 2011
This app allows you to carry Charlie Sheen around in your pocket. Well, not literally, that would be dangerous considering the amount of cigarettes that he gets through in a day, however you are able to hear his choice catchphrases at the touch of a button. As well as the now legendary, “I’m bi-winning” and “I’ve got tiger blood, man”, you can hear him growl, “I am on a drug, it’s called Charlie Sheen; it’s not available because if you try it once you will die, your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body”, “I don’t sleep, I wait” and my personal favourite, “The run I was on made Sinatra, Flynn, Jagger, Richards all of them just look like, you know, droopy-eyed armless children.” It’s free. Download it now. I mean, right now.
3. The MaSheen – price:$2.99, Updated: Apr 26, 2011, Seller: Aubrey Anderson
As a self-appointed warlock who knows his way around the more dangerous side of life, Charlie Sheen has released his very own iPhone app that guides any potential Vatican Assassins through their own lives with the ethos of a WINNER. Claiming to put, “the mind of Charlie Sheen in your pocket” all for the price tag of $2.99, hopes are obviously set quite high. While the content of the app doesn’t really deliver on its promise, any Charlie Sheen fan won’t mind blowing 3 bucks in order to get the ‘Mind Torpedoes’ feature, (essentially a list of his best known quotes), ‘Fastballs of Truth’ which show very short clips of the great one passing on his pearls of wisdom in interviews and ‘Magik Tiger’ which is basically a magic 8-ball that is activated every time that you shake your iPhone, putting your fate in the hands of the master warlock himself. What could possibly go wrong?!
4. Charlie Sheen Audio – Price: $1.19, Updated: 03 May 2011, Seller: galen wollenberg
This is essentially the same as the #WINNING With Charlie Sheen soundboard, however it does come with some interesting caricatures of the Vatican Assassin. You can also get this app for the iPad, allowing you to see his cartoon profile on a bigger screen. To be honest, you might as well get the free app, unless you have a particular affinity for his face…which he would understand.
5. Twitter – Free, Updated: Mar 31, 2011, Seller: Twitter Inc.
