Pick any song. Pick any flavor. JELL-O breaks it down.
Now I never thought I’d type this sentence: Watch, as a dancing cube of Jello takes over your phone and bounces along to your favorite song. But the future is now, and Kraft has released the world’s first app that lets you play with your food. And if you wondered why you hadn’t seen me all summer, it’s because I’ve been at CP+B, churning out the code that makes that possible.
JELL-O Jiggle-it is a (FREE) universal app, meaning it runs on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The app really only does one thing, but it’s do-doing it well… choose a flavor, pick a song (or crank your stereo), and then watch a funky cube of jello break it down like Soul Train. It’s not just a parlor trick: the jiggling jell-o is smart enough to listen to the track, then dance along to the beat. Pause the music, and the cube stops in its tracks. Turn the music back up, and it keeps moving. And the hits don’t stop there – you can trigger many of over 30 dance moves by swiping the screen along with the music. If you hit the right combination, you can trigger a disco dance floor that rivals a scene from Staying Alive… minus the polyster suit and hairy chest.
The JELL-O Jiggle-It support site says that future updates are coming soon, so stay tuned for more cubic, gelatinous dance music fun. What’s next, a Jell-o DJ?
“…a clever way to exploit Jell-O’s unique motion properties in the digital age… I can attest that the technology works pretty well.”
“App of the Day. An amazing music visualizer… as soon as you start using the app, you will be absolutely blown away… one of the neatest apps in the App Store.”

“The free app lets you select different flavors of JELL-O that then dance to tunes from your Music app. The end result is actually quite funny.”
“I don’t think you’re ready for this jelly.”
