[prMac.com] London, UK - Lobstur has released Witty Kitty 1.01 for iPhone and iPod touch. You know those days when you get nothing but crappy PR emails telling you about stuff you don't care about? Well today isn't one of those days. Just kidding, it is. Witty Kitty is a novelty app that is so awesome, you'll never want to smell another fart app again.
When browsing around for iPhone apps and wading through the huge amounts of ifart or igun apps, perhaps there can be an app that is both awful, and yet completely brilliant. How many apps are there that involve kitties? Probably an infinite number. Kitties that jump up and give you randomised cat puns when stroked the right way? Only one.
Witty Kitty is an app that is engineered to fulfill the "A kitty that makes cat puns when you stroke it? There's an app for that." niche. It's an enormously fun and silly app, that whilst being arguably quite retarded, does have genuine charm and playability, and will make you glad. Which is it's sole purpose. Everyone knows that cats and assorted LOLs make dynamite material for the "internets" crowd, but this has wider appeal, and the fact that it's all about silliness is endearing. And silly. It's really silly. Did I mention that? It's also refreshing that an app that is clearly just a bit of fun clearly has a bit of therapeutic value too - it's not instantly apparent how the kitty likes to be stroked, and if it doesn't like how you're doing it, it won't be witty at all - it'll just scratch you. But find a technique and he'll be meowing and generating kitty puns all over the place. Move over LOLcats, there's a new kitty in town. And he's witty.
