Talking Tom & Ben News adds a new chapter to the Talking Tom saga, with all kinds of new tricks and features to keep you entertained. In this program, Tom and his friend Ben team up to present everything you say as news, while also waging a prank battle against each other.


Fun animations: This app is full of fun animations, some of which are preset and some of which you can initiate yourself. Tom and Ben will respond to however you poke and prod them, spinning in their chair or even falling out at a few swipes of your finger. Of course they also repeat everything you say, and in this particular context, present it as news from behind their news desk.

Video upload: In addition to poking and prodding Tom and Ben, you can also take a video of yourself and upload it to enhance a news segment. The video you create will play in a loop on the screen in the middle of the News Desk, and you can then give Tom and Ben funny things to say about it as it plays.


Tons of ads: There are all kinds of ads integrated into this app. They include banner ads, pop-up ads, and ads in the news desk itself. This makes it very easy for kids to hit these ads by accident or mistake them for part of the program and exit the app inadvertently, which could become quite frustrating.

Bottom Line

Talking Tom & Ben News is a cute app with intuitive controls. It will quickly get old for adults; but for kids, it can provide endless entertainment. The app itself is free, and you can remove all ads and unlock all features with an in-app purchase of $1.99.
