You Don't Know Jack is now available for free, providing users with unlimited access to all episodes that are available on iOS. The app still has ads throughout, though players can purchase an upgrade for $2.99 that removes them.

“Among our biggest takeaways is that we have a core group of loyal fans who really prefer to play episodically and, when they do play, they engage in much longer gaming sessions than your typical mobile app. With this title update and with more than 300 regular, themed, and celebrity guest episodes already in the app - with more on the way - we’re ready to support fans’ desire to play the way they want.” said Mike Bilder, GM, Jackbox Games, in a press release.

This Week at 148Apps: April 18-22

This week, April 17-24, Japanese company GREE announced a $104 million acquisition of OpenFeint, the social gaming network that operates similarly to Apple Game Center. For consumers, this meanss "faster SDK updates, awesome new products, and network improvements" (official press release). 148Apps Founder Jeff Scott comments "this acquisition seems to be a win for both parties and will allow OpenFeint to continue to do the great work that they do while letting GREE better benefit from that."

In other news, Final Fantasy users can rejoice with gladness, for the third instalment of the popular game is now available to download natively on the iPad. "The iPad version of the game features improved 3D visuals and the touch screen controls have been adjusted specifically for the iPad" writes Phillip Levin. "Today, many consider Final Fantasy III to be one of the greatest RPGs of all time." Follow the link below to get stuck in.

You Don't Know Jack picked up the latest Editor's Choice badge at 148Apps. The comical application that tests how smart you really are, by asking you inquisitive questions designed to question what you've perhaps always thought to be true. "Simply put, You Don’t Know Jack is the kind of experience that not only stretches the mind with challenge, but inversely massages it with humor to ease the blow of defeat" writes Blake Grundman. "Buy it for that know-it-all in your life, because sometimes it is just too much fun to see a person put in their place. Rest assured that it will be fun for all parties involved."

You may remember in last week's column that I mentioned Tweetbot, the new and exciting application designed to challenge the official Twitter app. Since then, Jeff Scott has taken it for an in-depth test drive and is suitably impressed. "Tweetbot does everything you’d expect a Twitter client to do ... [and] has a few great unique features aimed mainly at saving you some time [like new gestures]." Although it isn't perfect, with some animation lag and lack of response at times, Jeff has "been using Tweetbot exclusively on [his] iPhone for almost a week now. Now this review is done, [he] will stick with it."

Episode 81 of The Portable Podcast is available to download, featuring guests Dave Castelnuovo from Bolt Creative. Host Carter Dotson and Dave discuss the mobile industry and the questionable freemium price model that some developers have scrapped in favour of traditional pricing models.

That's all for this week! 148Apps wishes you a happy spring holiday of your choosing, and we encourage you to check back frequently for the latest reviews and news when it comes to iOS and your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. See you soon!

You Don't Know Jack Quizes Its Way Onto iOS [Updated]

Posted by Blake Grundman on April 11th, 2011

Updated 2:30pm: Whoops! Looks like we made a mistake. THQ are not involved with this iOS app, it's coming directly from Jellyvision. Post updated.

There is just something about quiz games that tickle my fancy something fierce.  Since the days of PC gaming there has been one franchise that did the fake quiz show better than any other, and that was the Jellyvision classic, You Don't Know Jack.  The combination of dirty jokes and clever wordplay kept me coming back for round after verbally abusive round.  It didn't hurt that I was awesome at it, either!

Well now there is plenty of reason to be excited, because fresh off of recently reviving the franchise on consoles, THQ Jellyvision is announcing that the title will be making its way to the iPhone and iPad very soon.  We do not have an exact date to pin on the release yet, but stay tuned, because as soon as we know, you will too.  Keep it locked here for any updates and take a little time to bone up on your pop culture wisdom.  You will be needing it very soon!
