Grown Men With Belts

Released: July 2011

This application is no longer available on the Android Market and it is not supported.

GrownMenWithBelts is an application I wrote to go hand and hand with a friend’s website: http://www.grownmenwithbelts.com. Unfortunately,  keeping the site updated turned out to be a big challenge and after one year, the site went down, and along with it went this app.

The app allows you to view the GMWB news feeds, Twitter posts and YoutTube channel. But the best kept secret was the ability to use your phone’s camera to take a picture of a friend and then edit that photo with championship wrestling belts and GMWB faces. Fun for all!

Below is the original website info, updated with new links.

Turn you and your friends into championship pro wrestlers!

Pro Wrestling’s Best Kept Secret.  Blog, News, Pictures, Videos and more!
