WorldAnimals is originally inspired by the creator's experience of studying the Japanese language while living in Japan for a year. One of the best experiences was learning Japanese animal onomatopoeia, and the instructor asking classmates from different countries what the animals sounded like in their languages. The maker of WorldAnimals currently speaks English, Chinese, and Japanese with plans to learn more in the future; other languages were researched to make this app.

Unexpectedly addictive and fun!

I downloaded this out of curiosity, expecting a few minutes of entertainment. Boy have I been surprised! I've found myself tapping through endlessly. It's great for waiting in lines or riding on the bus, and all the animal sounds make for fun tidbits to share with friends.

Animal sounds around the world are WEIRD. Hearing them read out loud is a blast. I've particularly enjoyed trying to guess what the average size of a dog is in each country, based on the sound that country uses.

The illustrations are adorable (that frog...) and the app supports a surprising number of languages. Well worth the money. Prepare for hours of enjoyment and plenty of fun facts at parties!
