Talking Pierre the Parrot

Category: 

Description of App: 

Talking Pierre is a very energetic and lively parrot, who lives in Talking Tom's kitchen. He's still a teenager and he likes to cause as much noise and destruction as possible. ;-)

When you talk to Pierre, he doesn't just repeat your words ... being a parrot, he remembers what you said previously and repeats it later at random.

Thus he combines different parts of your sentences to create new funny ones. Sometimes he repeats just a part more than once and then adds something completely different at the end.

Try talking to Pierre, his responses are always unexpected and extremely hilarious.

★★★ HOW TO PLAY ★★★✔ Talk to Pierre and he will repeat with a twist. ;-)✔ Poke him in the head or belly and see what his reaction is.✔ Poke him in the feet and enjoy his little cowboy dance.✔ Tickle his head or body to make him happy.✔ Press the Blender button to switch the blender on. Once the blender is making noise, Pierre cannot hear you anymore.✔ Press the Tomato button to throw tomatoes at him.✔ Press the Cracked Teacup button to see him throw stuff to the floor making lovely noise.✔ Press the Water Faucet button to see Pierre start sprinkling water around the kitchen (in-app purcase required).✔ Record videos and upload them to YouTube & Facebook or send them by email or MMS.

★★★ PAID FEATURES ★★★You have to make an in-app purchase:✔ if you want for a tomato to actually hit Pierre (in the free app he just keeps dodging them)✔ if you want to see Pierre throw more stuff to the floor✔ if you want to see Pierre sprinkling water around the kitchen

★★★ IMPORTANT ★★★➔ iPod Touch 1st, 2nd & 3rd generation owners: Your earphones must have a microphone otherwise Pierre won't be able to hear you!

Accessibility Comments: 

Here is the deal. Most of the buttons are not clearly labeled. However, in this case unless you have enough vision to care, the buttons are not an issue. They are not really of any use for blind people. The main use for this particular app is just to have fun with it, and enjoy how it screws up your sentences.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads a few page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Few buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

Some parts of the app are accessible with VoiceOver, but not enough to make it usable.

Other Comments: 

I won't repeat what I stated in the accessibility comments section. When you open the app, there is a dialog that has a close button. This is just the page that allows you to make in app purchases, none of which are useful to blind people. Click that close button, and Pierre will start listening to you, and repeating everything you say. It's a good idea to turn off VoiceOver speech while using the app. If you don't do this, Pierre records everything VO says. To do this, double tap with 3 fingers to turn speech off. When your finished, do the same to turn speech back on. I think it stores around 5 or 10 minutes of clips, before recycling the speech buffer. Trust me, this app is real fun. It is a time wasting app, and it will make you laugh. It's good stuff!
