5. Talking Angela Is Still For Sale
You can still download Talking Angela from the App Store. The app’s iTunes page can be viewed here. There appear to be no plans to remove the app from the App Store.
The decision not to pull the app might have unexpected repercussions, however. While the Talking Angela app is not dangerous for children to use, that hasn’t stopped users from leaving negative “reviews” on the App Store listing for Talking Angela.
As you can see on this iTunes page for Talking Angela, there are a number of negative reviews that appear to be related to the hoax. One review reads:
“you know how it takes a second for her to say something there is a guy behind all of this that is a hacker typing all of that stuff my friend who wanted to see what the guy would say he said a typo he said I was talking a little cat rap instead of cat nap. Delete this app now he gets all of your information he asked me what my name was and he goes on saying other things when I ask a question. My friend typed to him I know you are a hacker and the person said I like complements. When you type the chocolate thing or cookie this I don’t really know what it is it wants your picture so the guy can see what you look like. Parents do not get this game the game finds all of your information.”
Another uncomplimentary review reads:
“I got this game thinking that we could talk about her but she tried to change the subject to me by asking me private questions like: “How old are you?”, ” What is your name?”, and even more private stuff like,”Who is in your family?” I am just a kid and it fooled me into thinking it was just a game…If you have children I suggest child mode though there is inappropriate body language…”
Despite the fact that this hoax has been debunked, Outfit7 and the Talking Angela game are likely to be dealing with the repercussions of these rumors for some time to come.
