PALO ALTO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

behind the blockbuster Talking Friends mobile apps, announced the
launch of a romantic new app, "Tom Loves Angela," which brings
the Talking Friends characters to a new level by allowing users
to have conversations with characters in the app. For the first time,
users will be able to experience the funny, witty and often cheeky
personality of Tom's favorite feline, Angela. Fans will be able to chat
with Angela about everything from love, to movies, to travel, to her
favorite cat, and listen to her responses. The app also lets users help
Tom woo Angela by putting fans in the driver's seat to deliver sweet
nothings from Tom's mouth to Angela's ears.
To complement the love story between Tom and Angela, Outfit7 launched a
new collaboration with Walt Disney (News - Alert) Records to debut Talking Tom's
foray into singing with the duet "You Get Me." The original number

Montana" and "High School Musical" hits, will be available June 12 in
the iTunes Store.
