About this app

Ever wonder what is on your cat's mind as they chase that elusive red dot or sit on your laptop mid-Zoom call? Cat parents, we get it! The feline mysteries are endless, and sometimes, their cryptic meows leave you baffled.

Picture this: you become feline-fluent, and are able to figure out what your cat wants 24/7! Your cat is your life's biggest enigma, and MeowTalk is the decoder ring you didn't know you needed!

MeowTalk is the world’s first science-backed and AI-powered cat translator app. Our mission is to help cat owners understand their cats’ needs better and make sure their pets live the longest and happiest life possible:

🐾 Every 'Meow' Meets Meaning: Understand your cat's every mood and need.
🐾 Strengthen Your Bond: Forge deeper connections with your furry friend.
🐾 Turn Meows into 'Meow-nificent’ Moments: Create an eventful timeline for your cat and save their adorable meows to listen to later.
🐾 Cat-astrophe Prevention: Say goodbye to those 'cat-astrophic' misunderstandings!
🐾 Over 280 Million Meows Analyzed: Cat parents from around the world trust us to accurately translate each 'Meow'.

Cat scientists say that cats primarily use meows to communicate with humans, as they instead use body language and smell to communicate with other cats. Their research shows that every cat will know a different number of words than other cats, and they all meow differently, but most of them express generic intents, or states of mind.

MeowTalk created a proprietary AI-powered model and trained it on cat vocalizations collected and labeled by veterinarians during scientific research. AI analyzes sounds captured by your phone, recognizes cat meows, categorizes them into one of the 11 general states of mind, and interprets them into human language.

The free app version provides access to the translation service with 3 basic meow intents. The rest of the intents will be blurred.

MeowTalk Premium subscription provides a more advanced experience:
- No blurred translations: unlimited access to all meow intents.
- No network ads!
- Auto-translate mode: translating multiple meows at a time.
- Keep track of all meows with Translation history.
- Download audio recordings to your device.
- MeowRoom: turn your old phone into a smart speaker for cats and stay connected to your cat 24/7, even when you’re not at home.
- Train the MeowTalk app to understand your cat’s unique vocabulary of meows better.
- Custom lingo, surprising translations, and more!

Let's shape the future of cat-human communication together, one meow at a time.

I don't mind watching an ad to play and ignoring it for 30 seconds to support the developer, but 3 ads to get one translation? My friend, that's not going to help you. @reply if you would've read what I said, 3 ads to unblur, when you said there is only one. So something is wrong here. And it's not going to help much. Otherwise, it barely picked up anything my cat said. When it did, I had to suffer through 3 ads. No thanks. Thankfully I speak their language.

Hello, in order to cover the data storage costs keep providing the translation service for free, we've incorporated network ads. If you need to unblur a Premium translation that is blurred, you need to watch one ad. If you are looking for a more advanced experience without ads, we invite you to explore the benefits of upgrading to our Premium tier.

It was once a really good app. No blurs on the translations. But now want money. It was fine before. Would've rated 5 stars if it hadn't changed. But there is one more thing. I am considering purchasing premium. When I do, if I get a lot of good stuff I will rate it higher. If not, I will cancel the subscription and stay at this level of review.

The app is fairly accurate at determining cat sounds, though it doesn't always pick up sounds exactly and it can mistake your voice or other noises as cat sounds. You can fix inaccurate translations, and I like the algorithmic learning system as it picks up cute and specific translations from others' translations. However, there's some glaring issues with the app. One minor issue is you can't edit everything after recording, which can be problematic if you accidentally record for the wrong cat. The worst issue with the app is that it WIPES ALL YOUR RECORDINGS IF YOU EVER LOG OUT. What frustrates me is that I didn't even log out on purpose, and I don't know why the app even logged me out, and now all my previous recordings are gone! I used the app to understand a stray we took into our home, and playing back the recordings of my cats' voices was always very therapeutic during times of stress. Now all of those recordings are GONE. What's the point of having an account if it remembers your cats but not their recording history? Please fix this problem ASAP! I am heartbroken that I have to start from scratch, especially when it's difficult to put my phone in the right position to record meows. I don't want to put all that effort into something that gets easily erased!
