In their first attempt at creating a mobile app, Nathalie Turton
and Lorelei Mathias managed 40,000 downloads and more than 1
million views on YouTube for its demo video. Not so shabby for an
April Fool's gag.
The pair was behind the much-blogged-about Google "Translate for
Animals" app released last month as a humorous way to promote the
search giant's first-ever mobile handset. With a U.K. launch date
right around April 1, why not wield a brand as big as Google to
make oink, squawk and moo translations into English believable?
