Snoop Dogg selfies proved lucrative in 2013, when his Snoopify photo-sharing app was making the rapper $30k a week. Now TV show Family Guy is following suit.
Developer 99centbrains, which made the Snoopify app, has released a new version for Fox's popular cartoon sitcom called Family Guy Photobomb, with similar features including in-app purchases for "sticker packs" of its characters.
