Not Your Typical School Concert

This app doesn't feature any typical school concert; instead, the Pete the Cat: School Jam concert will be staring the fabulous character of Pete and all his friends. There's a slight problem though, Pete has lost his guitar and this is when kids can step in to help. Users will be looking for hidden objects that are placed all around the school which also means they get to check out all kinds of cool locations. The experience doesn't end when the guitar is found though as kids can then go on to rock out on Pete's guitar.

Best iphone and ipad apps

The app is being offered for $0.99 for a limited time only as this is its introductory price. It was updated over the summer when some bug fixes were made for iOS 7 users and it was optimized for iPhone 5/5S. The app has three out of five stars from users, which definitely leaves room for some enhancements and improvements. Parents love the experience and how fun it is for kids but it seems it's a bit short. As well there seems to be some little issues here and there with it working smoothly.

Help Locate Pete's Guitar

The main focus with the Pete the Cat: School Jam app is of course finding Pete's guitar but then their reward to play the guitar is just as fun. Search through all kinds of interactive hiding spots in such places as the school bus, the cafeteria, the classroom, and more. There are fun animations on each and every page that will capture their attention immediately. As they search through the rooms they can even unlock a 3D Pete who is cleverly hidden. This version of Pete is able to play with kids in an interactive way. In free play mode you can play Pete's guitar and in the School Jam game this is a chance to rock out to the My School Shoes song.
