Purrapy: Written Android App Review
Here at Android Apps Review, we tend to stick to reviewing standard applications: You know, stuff like games, finance tools, etc. This means that we don’t typically branch out and cover what’s going on within the live wallpaper community. However, in the case of Purrapy by developer Ministry of Life (smashing name that, lads) we felt like we just had to. The app will appeal to such a wide group of cat enthusiasts, it simple felt immoral to leave it out. So if you’re curious to see what this furry, purring live wallpaper has to offer, go ahead and skip on down below the break to view our whole review!
Concept and Functionality
As stated, Purrapy is intended to be a live wallpaper, but it’s also an app in its own right, as well. At both levels, the application’s intent and designated function is the same, however: It acts as a digital cat’s back, allowing you to tap the back for a quick meow, stroke it for a purr, or shake the phone to hear the all-too-familiar sound of an hissing, pissed off pussy. It’s a unique idea, and within the app, you have the option to obtain a few more cat varieties for a nominal fee. Each of these comes with its own sounds, as well as its own fur to go along with the payment. It’s a clever thought and as relaxing as the app itself is, we really enjoyed it as our live wallpaper. The back of your virtual cat responds to your touch as you flick from window to window, creating a very lively and engaging atmosphere. Furthermore, with detailed sound effects and a vibrating purr, you’re guaranteed to almost feel like you’re playing with the real thing.
Design and Graphics
We have to admit, the app itself looks pretty great, too. The varieties of fur that we played around with were all quite visually stunning, and the more we think about it, the more we’re impressed by the level of detail. Furthermore, the sound are all top-notch, as is the physics engine that sits underneath the hood, tracking your every fingered motion. All in all, the app comes in a spritely and professional package alongside legitimately relaxing and smooth sensual data: What we’re really saying is, the app has what it does nailed down to a t.
Considering Purrapy is completely free in the Android Market, there’s hardly a reason not to give it a go! If you’re a dedicated cat fanatic and want a little bit more feline action in your day, set it as your live wallpaper and enjoy. If you’d like more cat breeds, you can always pay the small fee to get the additional goodies. If you’re so inclined, you can of course just enjoy what’s here for free. Either way, the app gets a solid recommendation.
