My Talking Pet - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

The app was developed by my co-founder back in 2013. I had the idea for the app but did not have coding experience, so we went 50/50 on the company where he built the app and I put some money into marketing.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The initial build didn’t have many challenges but we’ve had hundreds of re-iterations over the last decade, so it looks very different today than 10 years ago. There have been lots of bugs to squash and some have been much more painful than others. Listening to customers everyday has been the best way to fix problems that occur.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

I seem to have an addiction to TikTok. It’s obviously a very controversial app and will be interesting if they ban it in the US. It’s such a big challenge to mainstream media and traditional entertainment channels because it turns its billion users into content creators. The world now has unlimited content that is fed specifically to the user that is most likely to engage with that content.

How long have you been working on this app?

Just over 10 years.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

Honestly we just wanted to make people laugh. Nothing funnier than seeing your pet talk back to you.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

We’ve had a lot of copycat apps after our initial success but most have been buggy or looking to scam users with extortionate pricing. We’ve continued to be successful over the years because we’ve focused on simplicity and fun.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

A special greetings card version. Watch this space!

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Obvious telling all your friends about how amazing our app is! We always love to hear any feedback from users and suggestions of how we can make it better. My email is always open. [email protected]
