If you have a friend who always quotes Family Guy episodes (and who doesn’t?), the Family Guy app puts the power of video behind the jokes. For this reason alone, Family Guy is worth your money.

The best part of the Family Guy app is the video mixer. Select a string of clips, interlace them with text quotes and e-mail a link to your friends so they can enjoy your creation.

It takes about 15 minutes for your video to be accessible online, and the quality is grainy. The text quotes are in boxes that don’t have sharp corners, a surprising imperfection considering the developer is Fox Mobile Entertainment. But it’s still fun to make a video collage and share Family Guy’s outlandish humor with like-minded friends.

The app includes approximately 25 longer video clips for viewing, a couple mini-games, and a section to view video mixes produced by other users. The mini-games are nothing special, and the video clips are nice to have, but not a good reason to buy this app. The real enjoyment of this app comes from producing and viewing customized video mixes.

When I purchased the Family Guy app it was on sale for 99 cents but the regular price of $1.99. Is another buck too much? Not for that friend who always quotes the show.
