One of the most iconic figures of 1980’s television Mr. T comes to the App Store with iPity. iPity is an application that will have you rolling on the floor or at least enjoying a nostalgic chuckle.
In iPity There are over 60 clips with some of your favorite phrases by the legendary Mr. T. Here’s how it works. Start up iPity and you’re greeted with a nice cartoon drawing of Mr. T and one of his infamous one-liners complete with mouth moving action. Shake the phone and you’ll get a new one each time. If you don’t want a random clip, you also have the option to choose a clip from the list.
iPity is everything it sets out to be. The graphics aren’t amazing but they are comical and fun. They definitely help users reminisce about the days when people toted Alf , Punky Brewster and A-Team lunch boxes. The quality of the sound bytes is okay. It’s not high-quality digital sound but then again it doesn’t need to be.
iPity is good but it does have some points of improvement. For instance if you touch Mr. T when the clip plays his mouth moves. However, if you shake the handset the clip plays but his mouth doesn’t move. An amazing add-on to this app would be the ability to type your own phrase. It would also be nice to have a way to set the app to play your favorite quotes. Choosing them each time can be somewhat cumbersome.
iPity is free in the App Store although I bet paying for it wouldn’t be a problem for any 80’s enthusiast.
