Hey Jersey Shore fans: We got a “situation” here. Rocking that Ed Hardy shirt and fist pumping with an unadorned, ill equipped cell phone will not help you hook up on the boardwalk. Don’t worry, bro.

First, Tingalin, a non-MTV-affiliated app company, has released a Jersey Shore-based app with a sweet twofer: Practice fist pumps on a Guitar Hero for low-brow guidos while downloading pick up lines.
