Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Remember those old toys? You'd turn them upside down and they'd make a mooing sound. Flip them again, another moo. What's old is new again. Turn your iPhone into an entertaining sound device that moos whenever you flip it from back to front or front to back. It won't build world peace or create unlimited renewable energy but it may amuse your three-year-old for several minutes. Small scale victories can be just as sweet. (Works on iPod touch but requires an external speaker)
Tips: Turn your sound ON. (Muted iPhones do not moo). Turn the iPhone glass down. And then glass up. Mooooo.
You have my 2 year old hooked...
Ok, so this is the ahem... review from my 2 year old... but it counts! I have spent a lot of time searching and downloading all the apps I can find for my Iphone that would help keep my 2 year old distracted while we are out and about. This app seems to have caught her attention. She now calls my Iphone the "Moo" Which to use is funny cause she can already talk in full sentaces and knows what phones are. She will play with this little app and shack the phone till it moos and laugh and tell us about the silly cow. I was a little uneasy about handing her the iphone at first, but after everything I have put it though, I guess it can take a little punishment from her too. My wish list for this app... make a few more animals, add some different sounds. Great app :) Thanks.
Can you hear moo now?
I love things which are clearly designed and classic, and this app fits that to a tee because it's a 21st century "moo box" for the iPhone/iPod Touch. Open up the app and turn over your iPhone and it moo's just like a moo box should. But there's more to it than that. Did you know that this is one of four sounds (sheep, cat and bird are the others) used to diagnose bilateral hearing loss in toddlers, known as the Moatti Test? The only thing which could make this app better is the addition of the remaining three animal sounds.
The graphics are spectacular! Makes me goosebumply every time I watch it. Could use better controls, maybe a comprehensive control panel. The moo is very soothing but then again I like the sound of a fork in the garbage disposal. Is there a way to make the cow move faster? I stared at it until my eyes dried up and it did not seem to hardly move untll maybe the fourth hour. My favorite app. Can't wait for verion 2.0.
