[prMac.com] Phoenix, Arizona - Big Future Media has updated Ask Grandma, available in the App Store. Ask Grandma 1.0.3 is a hilarious spin on talking character apps. "Imagine you took the fun unpredictability of the Magic 8-Ball and coupled it with hilarious characters known for their odd take on life. Then you added the technology to ask the character a question and have it talk back to you. Well, we did it. It is called Ask Grandma. For us, graphics like nobody else had, over-the-top voiceovers and laugh out loud humor were our top priority for each character. We set out to create the app you couldn't wait to break out and show your friends," said Adam McArthur, co-founder of Big Future Media.
Ask Grandma Talking Character App is one of 4 characters Big Future Media has released. Other characters include:
* Ask Confucius
* Ask Obama
* Ask Bush
"We have two more characters we are about to release. One is a beauty queen named Melissa Maybe. We are really excited for her. The other we are keeping tight lipped on. But, it will be one of our favorites and have a bit of shock value to it," said Chris Cotty, another founder of Big Future Media.
Ask Grandma and friends boasts hilarious, lifelike graphics from visual artist Amine Slamani, and uses hand picked voice-over artists/impressionists from around the globe. Unlike Talking Tom, where their characters simply repeat what you are saying, Ask Grandma and friends have 25 pre-loaded hysterical responses. Simply ask the character a question and listen as the character answers. And now you can share what you asked and the response with your friends via Facebook and Twitter.
The feedback has been great from people who have downloaded the app. Especially when they get a funny question/answer combo. There is an overall "shock and awe" feel when the character speaks back and you are either frightened or can't stop laughing. We'll take either response.
* Amazing lifelike talking characters
* Unique voices and spot on impersonations
* Each character has 25 uniquely written responses
* Share question and answer via Facebook and Twitter
* iPhone 3GS/4/4S/5, iPod touch (3rd/4th/5th generation), and iPad

Big Future Media, based in sunny Phoenix, Arizona, is a new startup app development company. Our small and therefore far more trustworthy team of self-proclaimed app experts came together under the desire to do one very important, even transcendent, thing - entertain the crap out of people. And there's a lot of room to do more and do better in that arena. Right now it's character apps and games, but with time and the encapsulation of a Hollywood movie script, maybe we can make the world a better place too. Copyright (C) 2013 Big Future Media.
