Android App Tablet Review: Talking Tom Cat

by Caitlin M. Foyt

Talking Tom Cat is like a cartoon that you can actually play with on your Android tablet.

Tom repeats everything you say, in his own voice, and does a fantastic job replicating what you say. Because he can interpret pauses as the end of your statement it's best to keep your phrases brief.

Tom look like a character straight out of a children's film. He's special, though, because you can actually reach out and touch him. You can pet him nicely, poke him in the stomach, grab his tail or slap him across the face. Turn on the app's video camera and you can send a funny little movie to your friends and family.

This is essentially the same app you can find on your Android phone. But the experience is even more fun now that Tom appears on the bigger screen.
