It's different information almost EVERYTIME you scan, and the ads are so bad. If I needed this app in a pinch, I most definitely could NOT rely on it. You'll be watching an ad for at least 30 seconds before you can scan a cat. And as elusive as cats are, that's not convenient. The reason it got 2 stars instead of one is because it does do its best to identify your cat and at the very least it can give you a starting point. But I'd scan at least 10 times and pick the most mentioned one.

It's a unique app. The app supposedly allows multiple pics to be selected. So far using pics from my phone gallery album, I can only load one. So far on one of my cats, I get varied results. I guess it may be accurate at times, but definitely not all the time or even most of the times. The developer contacted me for information. If multiple pics in an album cannot be selected, go to the album and select the pic then share to the app. Works fine, but accuracy is still the same.

Thanks for your feedback. Have you tried to use a long press on the first image?

Its a great app to showcase your adorable kittens only when it able to connect to the internet. On the daily I have so much troubles I almost broke my phone trying to get a picture to go through 10 times. And I deal with this issue every 2 pics I upload. If for recommendations, I would wish to see if you guys could add stickers to the pictures when we share them with other people so we can have more fun with it. Otherwise, the app truly is great for me when its working and I love seeing cats.
