CNET Editors' review
Talking Tom Cat 2 is a well-designed app that provides a virtual pet cat that responds to touch and repeats everything you say in a funny voice. Despite its well-designed interface, even true cat lovers might get bored with the limited interaction offered in this free version.
As soon as you launch the program, Tom the cat appears in the center of your display and you can pet him, poke him, or even try to grab his tail if you can (we couldn't). The interface is well-designed with easy-to-understand control buttons spread across the right and left of the screen. We liked the overall design and the app was easy to use but the limited interaction got a bit monotonous after a while. The best part was hearing the cat repeat what you say. This was funny at first, but it didn't hold our attention for long. Talking Tom Cat 2 does have social media integration, meaning you can record video of your virtual pet and share it on Facebook, but even that couldn't save the app from growing old quickly. There were options to give your virtual pet a new house or add items to his wardrobe, but these and other options require you to pay.
Overall, Talking Tom Cat 2's great design doesn't exactly compensate for the limited interaction, and most users won't be thrilled for long with what the app offers for free.
