Family Guy iPhone App Review.
It's funny! It's hilarious! It's preposterous! It's Family Guy! And it's right on your iPhone and iPod Touch. The Family Guy iPhone app, brought to you by Fox Mobile Entertainment, lets you enjoy video clips from the show, play a mini-game, create Stewie pin-ups and even make your own clip-mash-ups from your favorite videos using the video mixer.
The app is packed full of content of your favorite Family Guy moments that you can share with friends and family and remember the laughs you've had. Be advised though, they are only clips and not full-length episodes, but every such clip comes with a link to iTunes where you can purchase the full episode.
One of the most entertaining modules of the app is the Freakin' Sweet Mixer portion of the app that lets you create your very own mash-up of your favorite moments by dragging the clips into the timeline, and then export it and post it directly to the app online for everyone else to watch and enjoy. In essence, it's an effort on your side to procrastinate from doing actual work, but if you loved Family Guy, you're sure to have a blast with this module.
The game features two other fun modules. With the Peter Toss mini-game you have to shake your device to watch Peter bouncing up and down around the screen, kind of like Fuzz Friend. In Stewie Pin-Up you can mix and match different Stewie heads and outfits to make your very own iPhone wallpaper.
I've heard a lot of people complaining that there are no full episodes on the app itself. To be fair, the price is not high enough to cover last Sunday's full episode that just aired. So we'd say that having a link to the iTunes episode is fine enough, but at $1.99 we would indeed expect more out of Family Guy. Tossing Peter around can get pretty boring after a couple of minutes, and there's so many pin-ups to do with Stewie. Undoubtedly, the video mixer is by far the best module of the Family Guy iPhone app, but perhaps not worth paying two bucks for, unless you're really into Family Guy.
