Talking Bear Hugs
Threat Level – Low
Talking Bear Hugs is an app developed by AppVillage pty ltd. This is a simple app that allows you to record a voice message overtop of a dancing digital bear to send to friends.
The digital bear is also interactive and can be interacted with like a video game. The messaging side of app is the sharing aspect. You can record a personalized message to go with your bear and allows you to email your personal message to other people. You can also share your voice recording to twitter or Facebook.
The app is free with a few in app purchase options like the Panda purchase where you can replace your digital bear with a digital panda.
I rated this a low threat level due to it being an app that just allows voice messages to be recorded and sent. It does not allow live chat or messaging. And only shares to social media.
