Minipops Go Mobile: 8-Bit Pop Icons Get an iPhone App

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  December 19, 2009

I’ve seen Craig Robinson’s wonderful little Minipops before, and now you can enjoy these tiny 8-bit pixel art caricatures on your iPhone with a brand new app.

The app features 1,000 celebrity and pop culture Minipop images, along with a directory which lets you quickly find the peeps you’re looking for. But the best part of the app (besides a tiny Alanis Morissette in her 8-bit birthday suit) is the “Guess Who?” mode, which is a nice little timewaster. Just turn your phone sideways, and the app hides the celebrity names. Flip it back to portrait mode, and you can see if your guess was correct. Hmmm… was that Mr. Roarke and Tattoo, or Dr. Evil and Mini-me?

You can get your hands on the new Minipop app over at the iTunes App Store for $2.99 (USD). It’s a solid 5-star app from my perspective. But then again, I’m a pixel art nut.
