The Apple iPhone has long been the hot mobile device of the stars,
including such big names as Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston, Zac Efron
and even the young Taylor Swift, so it’s no surprise that this year’s
coveted Academy Awards SWAG bags include a little iPhone fun as well.
The App is called "OMG Texting Dictionary" and is the perfect companion
App to the new book Read Between the Lines by author Shawn Marie
Edgington. This is the first time a mobile App has been part of the
Academy Awards SWAG.
Read Between the Lines: A Humorous Guide to Texting with Simplicity
and Style, is a take on the pop-culture and text lingo that has sprung
up everywhere around the practice of text messaging and tweeting.
Thinking about sexting? Take a look at chapter 3 before sending that
message. Want to know what "*$s" means? A helpful SMS acronym
translator is included. The iPhone application gives you quick access
to all the information you need to be considered "hip" in a world of
CUL8R’s and ROTFL’s.
"It was an honor to be chosen to be included in this years Oscar
SWAG bags" said Edgington, a successful female CEO and President of
Granite Insurance Brokers. "Suddenly friends I haven’t talked to in
ages are all coming out of the woodwork and volunteering to help hand
out RBTL at the SWAG event down in Los Angeles!" Shawn’s 17 year-old
daughter and semi-professional texter Nicole will be her assistant
during the show event (mostly because she’s dying to meet Miley Cyrus),
along with a photographer and a few "select" close friends.
