Who hasn’t heard about Tom and Jerry? Well, the great news for those of you looking to watch Tom and Jerry’s adventures for free on a Windows 8, Windows 10 tablet is that now you can with the app that we’re reviewing below!
Tom and Jerry was a show that almost everyone from our generation has watched. The two “best friends”, were putting a smile on our faces each day of childhood. I remember, when I was not at the local arcade, playing PacMan and Space Invaders, I was home, watching these two guys, and other awesome cartoons from the time.
Truth be told, even now, when I have the chance, I watch the show, and even after all these years, I still find the old cartoon to be as funny as it was back then. And for fans of this cartoon classic, there is way you can watch all the old episodes on your Windows 8, Windows 10 devices.
Tom and Jerry for Windows 8, Windows 10
The app that allows you to watch Tom and Jerry for free in Windows 8, Windows 10 is called…well, you’ve guessed it: Tom and Jerry. Its simplicity and ease of use are some of its most prominent features, and it allows virtually everyone to watch their favorite episodes, without spending countless hours searching for them on YouTube.
When you first open the app, it will ask you if you want to see the tutorial, which is a 18 minutes long YouTube video, explaining how the app works and how you can use it. Of course, this is what we also will be covering in this review, but nevertheless, a good idea, but it would have been better if users wouldn’t had to exit the app and go to the Desktop to see the tutorial.
When you have gotten passed the initial screen, you will see a list with all the episodes of Tom and Jerry, up to episode 161! Each episode has the name and thumbnail so you can quickly find a particular one if you wish so.
When you enter an episode, it will automatically search for it and start playing it. This will greatly depend on your Internet speed, but it usually finds and loads the episode in a matter of seconds. To make the video full screen, requires you to click or tap once on it. One very annoying thing about the app is the fact that the video is not centered, and even in full screen view, the add on the right side of the screen is visible.
Play and pause button is placed on the left of the screen, but only visible when you exit full screen view, and there are no volume buttons. Of course, these are just minor inconveniences, but the player should receive some upgrades in the future. For now, I’m happy that I can view one of my favorite cartoon of all time!
