iPhone App Review: The Jerky Boys Prank Caller

iPhone App Review: The Jerky Boys Prank Caller

April 5th, 2010 by

Okay, so, let me start this off by saying that I’ve never been a particularly huge Jerky Boys fan. I’ve never really disliked them, but I’ve never been into them, you know what I mean? So I’ll refrain from any real commentary on whether or not I find them funny since I’m here to review the app itself, not the content, right?

For those of you blissfully unaware, the Jerky Boys were a comedy duo discovered by Howard Stern. From 1989 until 2000 they were wildly successful, selling more than 8,000,000 CDs since their first release in 1993, and even starred in a movie in 1995. They broke up in 2000 but the name continues on today with one of the original members and, of course, this app.

Features

The Jerky Boys Prank Caller is essentially a souped-up soundboard for die-hard fans, so if you’re count yourself among the Jerky Boys fan-base you can probably stop reading now and just buy the app. It includes soundboards for three of the main characters, three previously unreleased prank calls, ring-tones, voicemail greetings, and tons of other clickable options featuring sounds and gags from the archives.

The app is well-designed and well implemented, making it easy to get right to the sound bytes that you undoubtedly crave oh-so-much, while still offering oodles of Jerky Boys Easter eggs littered throughout the app. There is even a somewhat amusing Prank Call feature built in that you could use to try and fool your (extraordinarily) unsuspecting friends.

Pros

  • Well designed and stable
  • High quality sound files
  • Lots of content
  • Expandable. Some sections have option pickers with only one option, and have an email link where you can email suggestion for additional calls or sounds to be included in future releases.

Cons

  • Not much that I can think of, unless you just don’t like the Jerky Boys. In which case, that’s the only Con you really need to hear.

Bottom Line

I mean seriously, if you don’t like the Jerky Boys then you’re not even reading this review, are you?

If you do like the Jerky Boys then this is a quality app that offers tons of old and new content, with the promise for future additions that we can only hope and pray the Jerky Boys make good on.
