[prMac.com] Toronto, Canada - Fans and wannabe fighters can get a taste of the MMA spotlight with the Cage Name app, from Me Thinks Studios. The entertaining and easy-to-use app generates fighter personas by pairing unique nicknames with standout images for every type of MMA fan - from the glass-jawed rookie to the cauliflower-eared veteran. The MMA-focused name generator is one of the first of its kind.
"We knew Bruce Buffer wasn't going to be calling our names any time soon, but we always enjoyed the fantasy of a fighter persona. Being long-time mixed martial arts and boxing fans, we wanted to bring that experience to everyone," said Simon Doubt, Me Thinks Studios co-founder.
With a tap, a swipe, and a shake, the app lets users choose names from an array of categories and then matches their name with a comic book-style character depicting one of the major fighting styles.
"We spent a lot of time making sure that Cage Name had eye-catching artwork - and we're thrilled with the way it turned out. We felt that having a nickname wasn't going to be enough, and once we put the names with the characters it really started to pop," said Me Thinks Studios co-founder, Patrick Murphy.
The social media tools are all there - Facebook, Twitter, and email - so users can flaunt their fighter personas without leaving the app. Integration with the device's address book also makes it easy to land social uppercuts on friends and rivals.
