No doubt many of you have used the tiny browsers on your mobile device to keep up with the gridiron heroics of Tim Tebow this season. If you don't have the stomach for all the fourth quarter comebacks and overtime miracles on television, just keeping track of the score or perusing photo galleries on your phone can be just what you need for your Tebow-fix-on-the-go.

Constantly looking for more? Leave it to the app world to capitalize on the man ESPN recently crowned the most popular athlete in America.



If you need your 15 and need him now, the Tim Tebow News and Stats app will feed your device with news, stats and highlight video “within minutes” of showing up on Google. Why ruin your eyes searching multiple google pages when you can feed into an easy-to-navigate app?

Wanna see Tebow in his undies? Of course we are talking about undershirts here. The good folks at Jockey have a free catalog app that of course features their popular pitchman. Not a lot to see here if the headline is what grabbed you.

Are you a hater? Punch Tebow might just be for you. My guess is this probably has been downloaded once or twice in our state's capital. In reality you must truly hate Tim Terrific to actually download and play this game because it's horrible. There is nothing more than tapping his face and seeing a grimace that looks more like he is smiling back at you. At least you don't have to drop a buck on this.

Tim Tebow TM might just seem like another wallpaper app, but, as with anything surrounding Tebow, the excitement level is always ratcheted up a few notches. For instance, check out this review: “Omggggg I love whoever made this appp! You r an absolute geniusss! Hottest football player ever!” Not sure any wallpaper app has ever garnered so much love.

Want to be the smartest Tebow fan or at least the funniest at the playoff party? iTebow might be the ticket. Here is a teaser: “Kellog's is suing Tim Tebow for copyright infringement. The ‘snap crackle and pop' sound made during a stiff-arm is too similar to their slogan for Rice Krispies.” Last update was in 2009 but these jokes will live on for generations. Right?

Can't get enough Tebow social media? An app aptly named, Tebow, will get you what you need when you need it by compiling his tweets, Facebook updates and pics. Heck, for an extra buck you can find out what kind of cereal he had in the morning. That's actually not true, but this app does have a tab where you can see “lot's of fans ‘tebowing.'” If that is not worth a buck, I don't know what is.

Finally, Logos Bible has a great free Bible app. It might not give you the particular definition for “hail Mary” that you're looking for, but it will give some insight into what makes Tebow tick and is quite handy to look-up all those verses he is talking about.
