Talking Tom Cat For iOS Reviewed: Right Here, Right Meow
This cat enjoys milk and likes to drink it when you hit the special button. Tom also likes to be scratched (hear him purr while you slide your finger back and forth his fur!) And if he gets angry he steps towards your screen and scratches it with its paws leaving white scratch traces. Surprisingly it’s amusing to watch Tom do it over and over.
Let Tom Speak For You
Your intonations and accents will remain recognizable but spoken in Tom’s special voice. It’s higher than the original tone (like it usually happens in cartoons). The algorithms of the app don’t preserve the tempo while pitching the sound. So we recommend you to speak to Tom a bit slower than you do usually and not to lower your voice. Then he’ll response in your normal tempo.
You can record a video with Tom repeating your words. This funny video will be a good bonus to a birthday letter or any other creative message. You can attach it to an email, a message in a social network service or just upload it to YouTube. By the way, the Video button shows you Tom’s official YouTube channel. If you want to see your own collection you can find it under the Camera button.
The funny toons starring Tom and his friends are another reason to install the app. You get notified when a new episode is out. Those funny cartoons are about 4 or 5 minutes long: quite enough for kids and adults. Maybe that’s how a new cartoon star is born.
Beware: Sometimes Indecent
If you just touch the cat’s head it means that you beat it with your fist. And don’t be surprised if the cat falls down and screams like the hit cats do. You can as well hit his belly and look what it’s like. And when you poke Tom’s feet he falls, and it’s kind of funny.
Of course, it’s not a good entertainment for a child. Do if you don’t want your kids to try the same experience with real animals you better turn Child Mode on before you hand your iPhone or iPad to your children.
There are also other features that may be described as “indecent”. How about Tom turning his back on you and farting? Easy, easy, this feature is paid and it won’t be activated in your app without your permission. Unless your kids outsmart you somehow and pay your money for the pleasure of seeing a farting cat.
Tom’s Story Will Go On
Yes, you can expand Tom’s possibilities within this app by buying premium features (though you don’t have to). It will cost you much less than caring about the real cat. You’ll get rid of those surrounding ads and teach Tom some new tricks.
There are iPhone- and iPad-optimized version with the same functionality and a bit varying interface. We suggest you install the right version for your device. The iPhone version looks pretty poor on the iPad screen.
Anyway, Tom the Talking Cat is a very amusing app that can help you spend some free time or create a funny video and send it out to a friend. Unfortunately most extra features are paid but even basic functionality is enough to make you smile many times. And of course, it’s worth installing and at least trying.
