If you’re a fan of gaming then it’s more than likely you’ve heard of PewDiePie: this guy has become a legend in the gaming universe with his quirky and energetic gaming reviews. Unlike other reviewers PewDiePie prefers to make his videos more about sharing moments with his audience members that he likes to refer to as his “bros.” He’s a controversial figure as he tends to say what’s on his mind, but no matter whether you love him or hate him there’s no disputing his popularity. His fans simply love him and now they can get their PewDiePie fix in the form of an app. This is a free app and it’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Internet sensations are nothing new, especially those that found fame on YouTube: Justin Bieber may be the most famous example of this. The growth of YouTube’s popularity has given anyone with a computer and a webcam the potential to become the next big thing. Why does PewDiePie rise above the crop of other video game reviewers? It’s simple, he’s not afraid to say what’s on his mind and controversy doesn’t faze him. If you don’t like profanity and you’re a firm believer in political correctness then you’ll probably want to stay away from this app.
This app really is for the established fan and that may be its only drawback. There’s no introduction or any kind of explanation of what the PewDiePie phenomenon is all about. This seems like a bit of a missed opportunity for an app. A little bit of background information might have helped him to establish new fans, but then again this would probably not be in keeping with his personality. This app will require 17.5 MB of available space on your iOS device.
How it Works
This app is designed to give you access to all of PewDiePie’s content in one place and there’s a lot of it. Down the left side of the app is a list of all the available sections, which includes a section for his shows, games, fans, and his feed. If you’re a big fan you’ll be thrilled with all the content here.
The feed section is where you’ll find all his latest reviews. It’s updated every day so there’s always fresh content. In the shows section you’ll find all your favorite PewDiePie segments including: Collabs, Best of, Broken Podcast, Friday’s with PewDiePie, Music, Vlogs, and Scariest Games Ever. To make it easier to find the content you’re looking for he’s also included a search section. This really is a pretty comprehensive app for the PewDiePie fan.
