Microsoft’s newest app lets you stalk your favorite celebrities with your iPhone

Can’t get enough of celebrity gossip? You’re not alone. Up in Redmond, Microsoft is so obsessed with keeping up with the Kardashians that they have just released a custom-built an attractive new celebrity news app called Snipp3t. And while the use to which Snipp3t is meant to be put may look a little tawdry, the app design itself is actually really nice.

Powered by Bing, Snipp3t keeps track of everything that is happening with your favorite celebrities and consolidates it into a single, slickly designed app. Here are the features:

• Subscribe to your favorite celebrity with one click, and the hottest stories about them will show up in your personalized stream of headlines.

• Tap on a celebrity to view their detailed profiles and explore a timeline of news stories surrounding them. You can also tap into a news story to get all relevant story content (news articles, photos, videos, and social mentions) in one place.

• Share your thoughts about the latest news with other fans of your favorite celebrities.

As a more casual reader of the celebrity-stalking tabloids, Snipp3t might be a bit too hardcore of a tool for me to stay abreast, as it were, with the latest Kat Dennings news. But if you’re a true Belieber or a Miley maniac, Snipp3t looks like it could be for you.

Snipp3t can be downloaded for free from the App Store by clicking the link below.
