Catastic App Review

| August 4, 2015 | 11 Comments

CatasticOne of the creators of the Catastic App found our cat product reviews on YouTube and reached out to me to see if we would be interested in doing a review of their brand new cat app, Catastic.  He told me that it was like Instagram for cats.  Of course, as many of you know, we had just started our Instagram account, so I was finally familiar with the platform.

So I took a look at the app’s page on Apple’s site and decided that I would be happy to do a review of the app.

The app is free.

Catastic is a mobile photo sharing social platform with a forum and it is just for cats.  The video limits are 15 seconds. You can also zoom in on pictures.  Another fun thing is you can ad a link to your picture.  This can be to YouTube link, a website or a store for people to buy something.

Catastic Features:

  • Home: Allows you to check out the photos and videos of the other Catastic users you are following.
  • Prowl: Allows you to find new kitties to follow as well as check out top performing photos on Catastic
  • Camera: Allows you to either take a photo, or choose to share one you already have on your phone/tablet.
  • Notifications: You can choose to be alerted when someone starts following you or likes and comments on your photos or videos.
  • Profile: This allows you to customize your page – much like your Facebook page or Instagram or Twitter – with a cover photo and a profile photo.
  • Best in Show: Catastic organizes all of the top liked pictures and videos in this one spot.
  • Forum: Allows you to start a forum thread, join in on the discussion of one already going or just read through the forum threads.

Catastic App Review Floppycats

 

Future for Catastic:

They are releasing true Direct messaging soon and videos uploads will be extended to 30-60 seconds rather than 15.

Catastic told me that the app will continue to evolve on what the users are requesting.  They are letting the users tell them what they want to have as the next feature.

I had a lot of fun with this review.  I will continue to use Catastic as one of our social media platforms to post on because it’s so highly cat concentrated, fun to use and because they are constantly looking to make it better.

I downloaded the Catastic app for free through Apple’s App Store and also asked that Catastic pay a small review fee.  Receiving the free product and the review fee did not influence this honest post.

    Looks like this would be appealing. I think the forums makes it even more so.

    I’m old and cranky about constantly creating different logins as well as keeping companies out of my contacts & other personal info makes me even crankier.

    “Apps are great for toilet time.” Probably the best, most memorable and funniest thing on the internet today!!

    I’ve often thought of asking if anyone has any media “toys” for their cats?!

    Prossimo enjoys the game at http://www.ipadgameforcats.com – he likes playing better on a tablet. (that sounds crazy typing!).

    He also is riveted when I play a YouTube video of birds or squirrels for him. I love when he tries to “catch” those birds!!

      i don’t have a tablet – but i do know there are readers that like specific apps that allow their kitties to play with them. i get why you get cranky…i get cranky and then remind myself that social media is a great way to grow FC

    Since this seems like a fu app, I tried to sign up. It kept saying “oops” something wrong with your user name or password. Tried seeral times and will probably give up. Too bad.

    OMG! How awesome is THIS app? I’m going to download it as soon as I’m done commenting. Of course, all I need is one more social media app, right? You betcha. Especially if it’s about Kittehs, Kittehs, Kittehs!!!!!

    Thanks for the great review and heads-up about this wonderful application, Jenny!

    Big hugs!

    Hi Jenny, after watching your review on this app, I immediately downloaded it and started playing with it. I absolutely LOVE IT!!! (you do the best of reviews- we now have 5 yeowww! bananas and rainbows that the boys and girls love! I’ve already told you about that though!)

    This app has got the potential to be as big, if not bigger than Facebook itself. I’m so much enjoying interacting with other cat lovers all over the world and its great fun! I am truly a ‘crazy cat woman’ (this being from someone that 18 months ago would not have allowed a cat near the house! cant believe I wasted all those years on the dogs that never liked me anyway! lol)

    The thing I have to say is how wonderful the app developers are at listening to reviews, replying to bug reports but especially being open to ideas of where the app can go in the future. I’ve had about 4 emails from them to me personally, asking about my Raggies, where they came from and how I came to name them, but mainly taking a real interest in what I have to say. This is lovely from a start up company. I did tell them the first time I wrote that I joined after watching your review so thanks so much again for your great reviews! I’m still waiting on my scoop but I imagine it has to be imported over here to the UK but I’ll let you know how that goes

    many regards

      Hi Nicky,

      I am so excited to hear that you are enjoying Catastic! And yes, the developers did convey to me that they were going to be very responsive to readers’ suggestions. Glad to hear they are.

      Please do let me know how you like the scoop!

      Jenny
