I cant even in words say what I just found out.. I am SHOCKED and want to tell and let my friends and family be made aware so they can make sure their children are safe!!! Angelica stayed home from school today and thank GOD she did. Because she was on her ipod playing a game called talking angela, which is similar to talking tom, anyway as she is sitting next to me this interactive cat says to her hi angelica where is your brother? She says o hes right here next to me the cat says o cool, then the cat says so what do you do for fun? Ang says I dont know, (now im being quiet and listening because I think its weird this angela cat knows she has a brother and is talking to her like a person) then its voice changes and in some weird robotic voice it says angelica when u date what do u do on your dates? She looked at me got red in the face and said nothing, then it said stick out your touunge, ill stick mine out too, it said what are some things u can do with your tounge? I can find many things to do with my tounge it said it said lets intrract w our toungues. I that point I had heard enough I zaid ang shut it off now! I was freaked out called the police departnrnt they came to the house saif they would have the internet investigations unit andpedofile investigations unit look into it, they called me an hour latet and said something is behind that cat!!! They dont know if it is local or over seas. While the police officer was there and ang was talking to him she told the police officer saturday night her cousin and her were on the app w angela and it asked the girls their names what her brothers name was what school they BOTH went to, and it took a picture of angelica!!! This is under serious investigation right now! When I googled talking angela I cant even begin to tell you what creepy stuff came up! Google it for yourselves please!! But some things are the cat asking girls for their phone numbers! And if theyve had their firat kiss!!! Take this app off your phone please! Theres a big chance thid cpuld be a door for pedofiles.the police said they have seen thing *like* this but never actually through a childs app but that they are not putting it past them! The girls told angela the cat on saturday their names and she had a brother and then on monday morning when angelica turned the app back on, It remebered her name and that she had a brother!!! These things ARENT supposed to ask you questions!!! and especially not questions about dating toungues or kissing!! I am disgusted! I dont feel safe at all right now! Knowing that there was some creep talking to my daughter and my neice through a talking app!!! Please if you have this app or any like it the police are saying take it off of your phone!!! Copy and share and send out PLEASE! This word needs to spread! I pray the ocean county investigators can crack this thing open!!!!!

Various messages warning against the Talking Angela app is circulating that claims the app is trying to harvest the information of children that use the application.

In February 2013 a message circulated that claimed that the app was harvesting information like names and addresses. A year later a much longer version was created that claimed the app was the front for pedophiles requesting inappropriate information from children.

It appears both the messages are false. There is no indication that the developers of the application, a reputable company known as Outfit 7, are under investigation. Assertions that the app asks for inappropriate information or is a front for pedophiles are totally false.

Outfit7 are a popular software developer and develop all types of software for children. They state in their privacy policy that they actively delete any personal information inadvertently collected from an under 13.

They also claimed in response to an isolated complaint in Hartlepool that -


Our Talking Angela app does not engage in inappropriate topics of conversation and is continually monitored to safeguard our network of loyal users.


Additionally the app currently has a 4+ star (out of 5) rating on the Android app marketplace and a 3.5 star rating on the Apple app store.

Parents should always carefully monitor their childrens online activities, and always ensure that they do not give away personal information or are using malicious software.

Parents are also advised to ensure that they are using the legitimate Talking Angela application from Outfit 7 and not an imposter version.

However the "Talking Angela" application is perfectly safe and the warning is false.
