The Problem with JIRBO Apps...

is the freaking bear mascot that is in the background somewhere!

I know it's his trademark but it looks really bad. Like Marble (it has Jirbo bear as the finish line).

PAPER FOOTBALL which dropped to FREE has him transparent dead center...

WHY??!!!

It's similar to a watermark in a way.

Brand imprinting maybe?

What does Jirbo make, that somebody else doesn't make better?

Seriously, I don't like any mascot such as animals (bear, in this case) appear as a trademark in any app. Wouldn't a professional/sleek logo design sufficient to do such purpose? It's just look so, unprofessional/childish/annoying with such mascot that KEEPS ON appearing on your screen whenever you try to launch an app.
