TITLE : TALKING ANGELA
DEVELOPER : OUTFIT7
PRICE : FREE
DESCRIPTION : INTERACTIVE-MIMIC GAME
“Talking Angela” app is no different from other similar popular children’s apps , including “Talking Tom Cat”, “Talking Ben the Dog” and “Talking Gina the Giraffe”. In fact Angela, which is the cat that is staring in the game, it is the female version of Talking Tom Cat and also his girlfriend and you can play with her online now and free.
The game it is set up on a cozy street of Paris, the town of love. Angela enjoys her drinks and feed some cute birds (which birds you can find in another talking friends game).
You can chat to Angela as if she were a real person (or cat, in this case), either through text chat or even through the app’s facial recognition technology, which is supported on some devices. You’ll notice that Angela can comprehend quite a lot of what you write and is able to recognize gestures you make in front of the camera. Chatting with Talking Angela can be fun once you’ve figured out the kind of things she likes to talk about. You’ll find you can even get her to perform requests, like singing a song or buying you a drink. Of course, some people might eventually end up deciding to say some naughty things to Talking Angela once they get bored. While obviously we couldn’t condone this behavior, the cat does have some witty retorts lined up if you say anything inappropriate. There is a ‘Child Mode’ in Talking Angela if you want to avoid anything sleazy altogether though.
You can interact with Talking Angela in other ways too. You might choose to give her a gift (some chocolates for example), or you can dress Angela up in a variety of different outfits (though you have to pay for these by purchasing game coins or you can wait for some days to pass and win some coins from the lottery).
But don’t forget to be kind and nice to her because she is a cute, sweet and first of all A LADY. If you treat her bad then a “protector” will appear because she is not alone in that France coffee.
Also in Talking Angela you will find new trivia quizzes that will test your knowledge. To start a quiz, type any of these into the chat window: quiz, give me a quiz, start quiz.

SOME WARNINGS SPREAD ON FACEBOOK
For this game it is possible to find some warnings that it is spread on Facebook. The warnings are like the following one.
WARNING FOR TO ALL PARENTS WITH CHILDREN THAT HAVE ANY ELECTRONIC DEVICES , EX : IPOD,TABLETS ETC .... THERE IS A SITE CALLED TALKING ANGELA , THIS SITE ASKS KIDS QUESTIONS LIKE : THERE NAMES , WHERE THEY GO TO SCHOOL AND ALSO TAKE PICTURES OF THEIR FACES BY PUSHING A HEART ON THE BOTTOM LEFT CORNER WITHOUT ANY NOTICES . PLEASE CHECK YOUR CHILDREN'S IPODS AND ALL TO MAKE SURE THEY DO NOT HAVE THIS APP !!! PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE ON TO YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS THAT HAVE KIDS !!!!
The inference from the all-caps warning is clearly that “Talking Angela” is somehow a risk to children.
For one thing, “Talking Angela” is an iOS app – not a website (although there is an optional Facebook component).
Also, the app’s purpose is to wait until the child says something and then mimic what they say back to them (albeit in a Parisian feline fashion) rather than to pilfer details of where they go to school.
This breathless, ALL CAPS warning is currently circulating rapidly via Facebook and other social media outlets. The supposed alert for parents claims that a “site” named Talking Angela is asking children questions such as their names and where they go to school as well as taking photographs of them without notification. The implication in the supposed warning is that the “site” is collecting this information for sinister reasons and that allowing children to use it could put them in danger.
However, the claims in the message are nonsense. Talking Angela provides harmless fun for children and there is nothing remotely sinister or harmful about it.
Our products and services are not directed to, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from, children under 13. If we learn that we have collected personal information of a child under 13, we will take all reasonable steps to delete the information as soon as possible. If you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us at http://outfit7.com/contact/.
Talking Angela was even featured on Entertainment Weekly’s The Family Room:
If you’ve got a little one, chances are you’re familiar with a cute talking feline by the name of Angela from the Tom Love Angela app or the video for the duet “You Get Me,” which has gotten more than 50 million views. Now Angela will get her own free app early next month, in which she’ll not only repeat what you say, but also process it and respond.
Of course, it is certainly wise to closely monitor the activities of your young children when they are using any Internet connected device. However, spreading fear mongering nonsense about a harmless children’s app is counterproductive and will do nothing whatsoever to help keep children safe.
1. Lets you chat about a range of different things.
2. Plenty of ways to interact with Angela
3. Facial recognition (on supported devices).
4. In version 2.0.1 it is fixed a crash on startup after upgrade on older devices and some missing graphic elements after upgrade.
1. Doesn’t include voice recognition (as a repeating) but it is available in child mode. The normal mode is chat-only.
2. The novelty of Talking Angela wears off quite quickly, but it’s an amusing distraction for a while and is a must for fans of the Talking Tom series.
In conclusion, “Talking Angela” is an app which is designed to be interactive. Choose what ever you like from the buttons, watch how she reacts (she has many beautiful facial expressions), let her mimic your words, give her gifts, change her appearance, buy her more accessories and enrich her wardrobe, treat her like a princess and enjoy hours of fun with Angela! So, just try it!
