When you’re looking to kill a little time, a funny, animated short can fit the bill perfectly. Petey and Jaydee is that sort of app – a series about two little aliens who are “small, green and a little bit mean.”
The cartoon and app are created by Green Tshirts Interactive, who have an episode up on their website so you can get a feel for what you’ll get. Tap “My Movies” at the bottom to see the clips you can install (each episode running about 45 seconds). Tap “Install” for a one-time installation, and you’ll have the clip to watch whenever you want.
There are six movies ready for you to install for free in “My Movies.” The rest of the series can be collected at $0.99 per episode by tapping “Store” at the bottom of the screen. All of the episodes can be divided into three categories which feature adventures in the kitchen, a music store or the soccer field.
The quality of the graphics and sound are both excellent, and the concept is cute – two mischievous aliens exploring everyday items and causing trouble. And spoiler alert; one (I’m thinking Jaydee) always dies in a rather gruesome way at the end.
The app itself is very simple and easy to navigate, and downloading each episode generally takes less than a minute. If you enjoyed any episodes of Petey and Jaydee you may have seen on TV or on the web, this app is sure to keep you entertained.
Petey and Jaydee Collection [iTunes Link] requires iPhone OS 3.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
