Mobile apps startup Outfit7 launched its first Talking Friend, Talking Tom (an interactive 3D cat that responds to touches and repeats what you), in June 2010. It became an instant worldwide hit. Now in 2012, with a diversity of Talking Friends, over 360 million downloads, 100 million active users and an average of 1 million downloads a day, Outfit7 is on fire.
And as the Talking Friends conquer the hearts of more people every day, the idea that Outfit7, like Rovio, will transition into an entertainment brand becomes more and more likely. We might even start to think that entertainment brands evolving out of the mobile industry is not a phenomenon but natural next step for mobile app successes.
