19/11/2009 – iPhone App Of The Week : Jetset

Among travellers, frequent travellers, leisure travellers and any other traveller you can imagine, there is one unifying bond…this bond is a significant dislike of airport security.  I know how airport security works, I even think there are some excellent airport security screeners out there…however I’m still irritated by dealing with airport security.

This week’s iPhone App of the Week allows travellers to put themselves behind the lines and try to beat airport security as a security screener. This week’s iPhone App of the Week is Persuasive GamesJetset.

Jetset a fantastically frustrating, and mildly addicting, iPhone game. I have been playing Jetset for the past few months and it a great way to vent my frustrations at coping with airport security.

The goal of the game is simple, clear airport security lines while detecting and removing all prohibited items.  Items are suddenly prohibited then suddenly allowed…what items might be suddenly prohibited? Shirts, pants, cameras, hats, bacon…yea because most people fly with bacon…but bacon can be banned in Jetset.

A fun side feature is that Jetset offers settings from 100 airports around the world and collect souvenirs from these airports. You can also redeem souvenirs for trophies.   I don’t play different airports or seek trophies, I am not a gamer, but I still find Jetset quite fun!

While I primarily focus on travel related iPhone Apps, sometimes kicking back with a fun airline related game is a great way to pass the time while sitting at Gate B11 waiting for a flights that is running two hours behind schedule.

Below are 10 screen shots from my iPhone of this week’s iPhone App of the Week, Jetset.

Happy Flying!
