NeNe Leakes has joined the growing list of celebrities with apps by launching her own, NeNe Leakes: The App, for iPhone and iPad. The app offers original emojis, NE'mojis, a special feature that allows users to dress NeNe by mixing and matching clothing items taken from NeNe's very own closet, and in app stickers.
In a statement, Leakes explained that numerous companies approached her about making an app, but for her it was important to work with a Georgia-based company.
"I've been approached numerous times by a plethora of companies about having an App for fans to really be part of the NeNe experience but it was really important for this Georgia Peach to partner with an Atlanta based company. I wanted to partner with a local company that would really understand how to make an App that was just as unique and fun as I am."
Leakes teamed up with Sapp & Sapp, LLC to create the new app, which you can purchase here.
App developer for the Atlanta-based company, Lonnie Sapp, said, "Partnering with NeNe has been a dream come true. Her vibrant personality lends itself to the NE'Mojis we've been able to create and she offers a vast library of content to continually create new emoticons that truly are as special as NeNe herself."
An Android version will be available soon.
