‘Sally’s Spa’ and the Megan Fox Effect

If you’re an iPhone developer and you’ve been struggling to figure out a way to get your game back on to the top 100, just get a celebrity to mention how they can’t stop playing your game on a talk show. Megan Fox appeared last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and explained how addicted she is to the time management game Sally’s Spa [$2.99 / Free].

The iPhone chat begins at around 3:20 remaining in the video:

Since Megan Fox’s plug on this nationally broadcasted talk show just last night, Sally’s Spa is back on the top 100. (Position #92 and climbing as of this writing.) This isn’t the first time we’ve seen celebrities mention iPhone games, between Demi Moore tweeting about battling Ashton Kutcher in Flight Control [99¢] or American Idol winner Jordin Sparks tweeting high scores from Harbor Master [99¢ / Free] among others.

This just goes to show how shockingly mainstream both iPhones and iPhone gaming is becoming, something I’m not sure many people expected when the iPhone and the App Store launched.
