Well, if your cat reacts like that to fruit... imagine what it would do with actual cat toys on screen?

I wrote an app just for cats...I wish I could get a viral video like that out on the web to promote it. I may end up advertising in Cat Fancy, though.

That only works for declawed cats (which is cruel for an animal and leaves them defenseless).  If you have a cat with claws, then playing that game could result in a severely scratched screen.

Yeah.. because the modern house cat faces soooooo many predators these days. More likely it just means the cat can't go outside and kill wildlife for fun.

I doubt you can scratch screen-plastic with keratin, also I heard the tap of claws on at least one of those videos.

No worse than fingernails. Also: Gorilla Glass. Cat's claws don't scratch up the screen. I know... As I stated above, I wrote an app specifically for cats to play on iPads and Android tablets.

That's what screen protectors are for. Have one on the tablet I'm typing this on, and I don't even have a cat.

Good for you, but you were a little late to the game.   Friskies has free ones.

I looked at yours - maybe you should try a "Lite" version for free, to let people see if it's better than the free ones out there and worth the $3.

Not sure when Friskies came out... I released my first version in 2010 for webOS (Touchpad)... but theirs is cartoony and the cat can't drag the toy around.

What's odd is that cat toys cost between $1 to $10 (That Cats Meow this is still $20) - mine isn't really that expensive in the grand scheme of things. A "Lite" version is kind of like giving away one flavor of cat food... if the cat likes it, why get the "premium" food just because it has 8 more varieties? If the cat doesn't like it, you are still screwed because then the cat owner isn't convinced that the other flavors might be something the cat will like. I really couldn't consider an ad-supported model, because cats don't really do ads, and I'd feel like I was cheating on the click-through when the cats inevitably pounce on the ad instead of the critter.

In short... it's tough to market without a lot of promotion.

On the other hand, my other app (Conk The Roach) and future apps are/will be advertiser supported. I released a "premium" version of the roach game, but in all likelihood, it will be the last; I mainly did that because it was my first Android app. As a developer, I get a unique look at how these thing sell... Google Play is probably the worst place to try and sell anything, but iTunes and Amazon provide me regular paying customers. If I can give it away and get money on ads (yes, I know some people block ads on their phones and tablets), then I stop worrying about my daily sales and I'm no longer competing with all the free apps and carrying a price tag as a handicap. In an ideal world, I fall into a PR situation that makes one of my ad-supported apps the next "Flappy Bird" and I retire to a life of churning out free software projects full time (I actually have contributed in significant ways to some interesting open source projects)

Yeah, I see your point.  Meanwhile, I'm not going to spend $3 on a cat app my cats may or may not like, if I can get an app they do like for free.  It's not like they're saying, "Hey - we're tired of Cat Fishing.  Buy us a new one."  By the way - Cat Fishing is the only one they give a crap about.  Cat Fishing 2, Jitterbug, Game for Cats... Meh.  Start Cat Fishing, and they will not leave my ipad alone for love nor money.  When it comes to apps, it seems they either like it or not, and they don't seem to get bored.

Before you have a viral video, you may want to start with, ya know, a video. Just a thought.

Looks fun though! Cat people are probably crazier than new parents (and I say that as a cat owner and a new-ish parent for the second time). If you're able to get the word out, I bet it can be pretty successful. Good luck with it.

Actually, they might like Conk The Roach... they just squash the roaches until all the crumbs get eaten. Of course, there is more to it for us humans (especially when the radioactive roaches show up), but they may get some entertainment value and there is the free version.... though I'm still waiting on Apple to approve the free version on iOS. I'm hoping Apple approves it early this upcoming week... but there was some glitchiness with the versioning (I re-submitted a new version for approval after a minor issue, which is the same version as the current Android release, but Apple doesn't have a mechanism for changing the version numbers on new submissions in their system - I'm hoping they can either fix that on their side or I'm stuck waiting another two weeks re-submitting this with the old version number. Ugh)

My cat purchased 500$ worth of virtual goods while swiping all over the screen and pressing a purchase button at some point I guess.

/not really, but would be funny if that happened to someone else

Someone once claimed that their dog bought a bunch of XBox Live points. Link
