Now that the New Orleans Saints are Super Bowl champions, allow these eight apps to come marching onto your iPhone.  

WhoDatApp

The ultimate and unofficial app celebrating everything Saints, WhoDatApp for two bucks aggregates twitter feeds of Drew Brees, Reggie Bush and other players and provides highlights from a popular radio show hosted by Saints legendary quarterback Bobby Hebert. This app was recently updated for the playoff run, and expect a new world championship version for America’s New Team.

Dig Dug Remix

Not since the Redskins blew by the Broncos in Super Bowl 22 has a team dug out of a 10-point deficit to win the Super Bowl. The New Orleans Saints are all about overcoming adversity, which is the mission of this $2.99 classic arcade game that challenges you to dig your way out of a hole. 

Hindsight

Saints’ coach Sean Payton’s decision to call an instant replay challenge on his team’s 2-point conversion in the 4th Quarter helped put the game out of reach. Don’t you wish you were able to take a second look and listen at actions that impact your day-to-day life? This 99-cent iPhone app allows you to record and play back up to 60 seconds of voice memos and then categorize them for later use.

Meteor Blitz

Just as they did against future Hall-of-Famers Kurt Warner and Brett Favre, the Saints defense relied on the blitz to ultimately get the better of Peyton Manning. Defensive coordinator Greg Williams may have been inspired by this $1.99 shooter game where you encounter the enemy with a plasma gun and flame thrower. 

The Surprise

The only way to beat the Colts was to keep the ball out of Peyton Manning’s hands. The surprise onside kick to start the second half achieved that aim. Words also can’t describe this 99-cent picture book that, like the Saints, also has a fairy tale ending.  

MyHalo

While The Who put on an entertaining halftime performance, one couldn’t help but notice that Pete Townsend and Roger Daltry are growing a little long in the tooth. The band’s groupies and manager may want to make room for the free myHalo app, which is a personal health and monitoring system for seniors and aging Baby Boomers. 

Gift it Up

New Orleans’ favorite son Peyton Manning more than likely will make his way back to the biggest stage. This is why one can’t help but think he intentionally landed that interception into Tracy Porter’s hands. While it is unlikely that Peyton (or anyone) would ever forget that kind gesture, just in case there is this $1.99 iPhone app that keeps track of all the gifts you make for the holidays and key moments in Super Bowl history.
