Couple of months ago my friend Lars Ørjan Nese asked me to collaborate with him on an app he created for football supporters. This app called RUBITIN derived from Rub It In.
This app is made to make it easier to get in touch and communicate with friends about football. For
example when you post a tweet on Twitter, many people who should see it does not. With this app
it is easy, fast and annoying(!) to post messages to your friends when you want to gloat on their
failure. Failure is the key point in this. How often have you got a SMS or a Facebook message when your team have failed to get the necessary three points? With this app you can easily treat all the same supporters
of a team alike.
By default there is some standard quotes of each team. You first select the team you want to provoke. Then you select a category - and finally the quote you want to send. The receiver will get instant alert of your message, and hopefully feel a little worse.
I worked with my buddy Sameer Aburezeq to do this RUBITIN commercial. Which is featuring Liverpool captain Gerrard.
I also designed several football stars to promote the app. Check them out:
Former Manchester United legend Roy Keane continued to plug his latest autobiography, The Second Half, this week and sustained his onslaught on the countless footballers and managers he has crossed during his time in the game.
The current Aston Villa and Ireland assistant claimed he cancelled a deal to sign Robbie Savage based on the player-turned-pundit's voicemail message, though he left no prisoners when it came to Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho.
Keane said he may never be able to forgive Sir Alex for the "lies" that were concocted about him as he was forced out of Old Trafford, while 'The Special One' was labelled a "disgrace" for his handshake snub, with the Irishman suggesting he would have been knocked out in a Sunday League match.
The 71-year-old claimed relief swept the dressing room the day Roy Keane left Old Trafford, described Owen Hargreaves as one of the most disappointing signings of his career, and labelled Rafa Benitez a 'silly man' for his infamous 'facts' rant.
