Introducing Cat-O-Matic, the perfect way to have some loopy fun with your pets!

Your iPhone can do a lot of things. It can give you access to all the information on the entire world wide web. It can show you how to get to the nearest coffee shop. It can figure out what songs you like. It can even teach you math.

But can it convince your pets (or perhaps your friends and relatives) that there are invisible cats roaming your house with the click of a button?


Just fire up Cat-O-Matic, push the "Randomize" button, and hide your iPhone or iPod Touch somewhere. Every 5-20 seconds, it will play a perfectly reproduced sound of a cat meowing, purring, hissing or making another weird sound cats make. Or if you'd rather control the action yourself, you can play any of the many unique sounds manually, using a friendly (and amusing) interface.

Cat-O-Matic works great on energetic cats and dogs. Don't know whether it works great on guinea pigs, iguanas, sloths, elephants or fish. Probably not fish.

If you have more than one pet, our tests - which were conducted with the use of SCIENCE! - have shown that they often seem to blame one another for the unexplained noises. This is hilarious, and not to be missed.

Also effective on many humans!

Cat-O-Matic is NOT intended to aid in the willful disruption of classrooms. It's possibly intended to aid in the disruption of dinner... But we didn't tell you that.

However you want to use it, Cat-O-Matic will be the best almost-a-buck you've ever spent in the App Store. It's less expensive than a large automobile, and more useful than a frozen burrito. You can't go wrong!

Cat-O-Matic: Hilarity Ensues.


NOTE: No animals were harmed, distressed, or mistreated in any way during the recording of the sound clips - we're all cat lovers here! I suppose "Magnolia" might have been a little annoyed, since she just hissed at the microphone a bunch of times. But all kitties involved were treated lovingly and received plenty of treats.

What's New in Version 1.1

Shorter time between meows when randomizing (per user suggestions), updated for iPhoneOS 3.0.

Ok funny story time! 

So I put the app on randomize and stuck my itouch in a shoebox and stuck it under the table. So in walks my cat and when she hears it, she puts her ears up really high and her eyes get all huge and she runs to the back door. She gets up on her hind legs and moves her head all around looking for the cat on her territory. With no luck she hears it again. She then runs and, following the sound, jumps ONTO the table, when my itouch was under. She sticks her head in and out of tight places and starts getting all dramatic. Then she finally jumps down and walks to the shoebox and listens. After a few of the cat fight sounds she finally decides to open the shoebox. She put her paw on the edge and desperately tries to open it. But then in walks my other cat that she dosn't like very much, and is also her brother, and I know she hates to make a fool of herself in front of him. So she stops searching and follows him into the bathroom to get something to eat. He heard it too but I bet he probably just thought it was her. So I took my itouch out of the shoebox and I was so glad I got the full version. But anyways, LOL! It was just hilarious. Get this app! It really works!

OK App 4 Stars

I got the free version and it was ok. But I wanted more so I got the regular app. That too is better than what I have seem out there however only 2 of the cats sound good. One is very angry sounding and the other just sounds weird. For $0.99 the app. is worth it!

Dangerous App - Don't buy!

We have a really quiet cat. I downloaded the app and after I used it, she became nuts and attacked my wife on her back and face. We ended in the hospital. It was an awful experience. Now the cat doesn't even want to enter the family room and puts herself in an attack position when either me or my wife move even a little. Please remove the app. It could cause unfortunate incidents with kids.
