[ Shoot a Moment ]
Because the opportunity is instantaneous, toruneko keeps shooting continuously. When you press the shooting button, the previous and next pictures also remain on the screen. You can review all the images and pick the best ones to save.
Shooting speed can be changed. So you can take good pictures whether your cat is sleeping or playing.

[ Get the Attention ]
Let's say "mew" with this app so that the cat faces the camera. During shooting, you can play a real cat's voice by tapping the screen.

[ Automatic Focus and Exposure ]
toruneko continuously adjusts focus and exposure. To change the focus point, tap any point on the screen.
If needed, set exposure to tap-to-adjust mode so that you can shoot with the same brightness until you tap next.

[ Zooming with Video Stabilization ]
During shooting, you can pinch the screen to zoom up to 10x. To reduce shake, you can turn on video stabilization by setting.

[ Cat Friendly ]
In dark places, you can shoot with the torch light. But cat's eyes are very sensitive. Therefore, toruneko has a setting to adjust the brightness of torch light.
Also has settings to change the volume of shutter sound and cat voice. When taking a picture of a sleeping cat, please lower the volume or mute it.

[ Edit after Shooting ]
With toruneko, you can edit the images after shooting. So it's possible to concentrate on the timing of pressing the shutter button.
In edit screen, you can choose the image, pinch the image to zoom, and slide the image.

[ Fun Animated GIF ]
You can export consecutive pictures as Animated GIFs. Loop and bounce are supported. GIFs will be saved in the Photos app so that you can pick them from another app like Twitter.

[ More Editing Features ]
You can correct the images horizontally with Automatic Horizontal Correction feature of toruneko. Even if the iPhone is tilted during shooting, images will be corrected as if holding the iPhone horizontally.
In addition, you can change the aspect ratio of the cropping bounds to 16:9, 4:3, or 1:1.

[ Sequence Pictures ]
You can make 4 or 9 consecutive pictures as one. It is useful when you want to post pictures of cat's gestures to SNS etc.

Needs improvement addendum

Just after I posted the review below, I tried to contact Team Aries through the app support button to discuss the concerns the addressed in my review. It took me to a website that merely displays screenshots of the company's apps, with no way to contact them. This is a disappointing way to conduct business.

What an innovation in the cat cam world!

Helloooooooo fellow cat picture taking friends! The app to solve all of our cat picture taking woes has finally arrived. Capturing every moment of your beloved felines life is now possible with this app! Enjoy!

Loved it! Best game ever!!! ,


I got it for my iPad, then realized two major problems: my iPad doesn't have a camera, and it crashes whenever I try to get into it. It looks like a good app, though, so I will download it on my iPhone and see if it works then.
