Talking Tom Cat is the well-known talking cat app that repeats everything we say, except in a particular tone that is attractive and captivating for both children and adults.
A dark purpose
The app was created by Outif7, a British company founded by Samo Login in 2010, the same year it launched the Talkin Tom Cat app, with so success that in just 19 months it already had 300 million downloads in more than 230 countries around the world , including countries such as The Vatican or Korea.
Talking Tom Cat’s hit would be joined by Talking Angela, Talking Ginger and Talkin Ben, among more than 10 other Outfit7 apps. Soon, however, rumours began to grow about the origin of the cat, and they would be especially suspicious of Talking Angela.
It appears that behind the app was moving a network of paedophiles who watched the children through the front camera of the phones. Several articles and videos arose about the point where the collective hysteria broke out and several people came to report the disappearance of children or the suspicious collection of data such as the age or address of the children.
However, after the investigation it was determined that it was a website that caused all the mess and that it had published an article, according to the owners of the website, with a tinge of rascality. The point is that this publication was being restrained to the point where it managed to be virilized and became known in a massive way.
Likewise, many crepypastas were made, that is, fictional stories where macabre stories are told; but in reality it was all a scam and neither in Tom’s eyes nor Angela could see the face of the person that would be after the application, as the sensationalist versions argued.
Today what started as Talking Tom Cat has grown to more than 14 apps so that the set has received the Talking Tom and Friends man which is available for Android, Iphone and Windows Phone.
