Was cute before update, now even better

Before this recent update, all you got for free was just the virtual pet gif that kind just drifted around its little box. Was very mediocre and not unique. But now??? Holy cow I love this thing. It’s like a little tamagotchi on your phone, I freaking love it. I made a virtual version of my cat and I love how many options there are for interactions. They also added a ton of other widgets, the infinite scroll I don’t really understand, but the world explorer widget is so cute and fun. The pixel art has been upgraded and is so much cuter now, so much more detail. I freaking love this thing, AND THANK YOU FOR MAKING IT FREE. Love it, very rarely you find an app you really like that isn’t constantly trying to squeeze a couple bucks outta you. Good on this app, well done.

Only thing I don’t like that if you tap the screen too fast it will open up the app asking for money. Super annoying, especially for the infinite scroll game and the world explorer, like you want to move faster than 1 square a move but if you tap too fast it opens up the app and makes the game go away, super annoying.

Really Awesome, a couple things though (updated to 3)

Hi! I recently got the app and loved it immediately. The cat (Hugo) looked exactly like my cat at home! However, the first thing I see when I open the app is the chance to buy premium. I don’t think much of it, and look for the button to close the screen. Now, I’m not sure if this is just my (discontinued) iPod Touch’s fault, but the top part was completely cut off, so if there was a close button, I wouldn’t have seen it! I had to forcequit the app just to add the cat to my screen. After that, it was smooth sailing except for the fact that anytime I opened the app, it kept asking me to rate it! Like, once in a while is fine, but after I was gone for literally 5 seconds? Not cool. Eventually, I decided to just hit the button and write a review, when I saw in the description that I can change the name of my pet. Again, not sure if this is my device’s fault, but I could not figure out how to do this. Finally, I noticed that the actions are basically the same thing. Walk and run are the same, as well as lie down and crouch. Only sleep is unique, and the only difference between that and lie down is the Z’s that float from the pet’s head. Anyway, that’s why I gave it 3 stars. Overall an amazing app, just a few bugs that need to be worked out!

Lovely app, but with a very annoying bug!

Heya! I’ve been using this app for a while now, and I love how many fun things you can do with it!

In particular, the little activities you can do with your pet, like going to the gym, are really fun, and the language learner (which I use with Spanish) is surprisingly nice!

ok but why does it have to have 2048 I am now completely obsessed with the game HELP

*cough cough* Anyway, I have noticed that a VERY annoying bug happens when my phone runs out of battery- my pixel pal, the cat, is almost completely reset!

I say “almost” because, for the first two or so times, the crops I had planted in my farm and, subsequently, the food I got from them, were still there!

With the first bug instance, my original cat still had its crops there b/c I had planted them before the loss of charge. Between the first and second instances, I harvested those crops, and then had them after the second wipe - but not the third one!

This has happened around 6 times now, over the last few months, with the last 2 happening yesterday. This was a minimal problem for me, since I hadn’t developed a strong emotional attachment to my pet, and I hadn’t spent any money on things like food bundles. But for people who have done either of those things, this could be a MAJOR problem! Please look into this!
