New Cartoon Network app launches! / by Jason Nunes

The coolest project I worked on last year just showed up in the app store.

Now you can watch your favorite Cartoon Network shows and play Cartoon Network games, all in the same easy-to-use app! Simply turn your device to flip instantly between watching video and playing games. And on the iPad, you can even use the split screen mode to watch and play at the same time!

Last year I worked with the fine folks at Funny Garbage, and the awesome team at Cartoon Network, to help design a ground breaking new iOS app.  What's cool about it other than the fact that you can watch full episodes of Cartoon Network shows, and play some awesome games, and other than the fact that you can do both of those things at the same time?

What could be cooler than that?

How about this--the CN app is the first one that recognizes the orientation of the rotation of your iPad, so that when you turn it one way:

you can watch full episodes and live TV from Cartoon Network.

BUT when you turn it the other way:

you can play games. Pretty nifty, huh?

Of course that's not all. We are talking about Cartoon Network after all. There's also a nifty meta-game that you play by watching videos, playing games, and combining the items you get from watching and playing to win cool collectables:

This was definitely my favorite project of 2011. I'm really proud of the work we did. I'm so excited it's in the app store. Download it! It's fun.
