Hot on the heels of its Come Dine With Me app, Channel 4 has released its second iPhone app. This one’s for Peep Show, and it’s a ‘Quotatron’.
What’s that? A soundboard app, with more than 50 quotes from Peep Shows past. “Mental posho, socks before pants, and chewing on Dobby’s weird hair – they’re all here, ready and waiting for you to give them another lease of life,” promises the blurb.
And so they are. The app ties into the iTunes Store with direct links to buy the episodes that the quotes are taken from. There’s also a bonus mini-game that sees Mark and Jez trying to reprogram their Volkvort boiler.
We’re big fans of Peep Show, but less big fans of soundboard apps, which tend to have limited novelty appeal. The Quotatron might be good for a laugh, but we can’t shake the feeling that Channel 4 could perhaps have been a bit more creative with the app for its much-loved comedy show.
