    Gameloft usually delivers high quality games for iOS devices, so I think it should work.

    Thats cruel. Those high frequency sounds hurts their ears, even though we can't hear them ourselves. Don't believe me? Ask any veterinarian or small animal specialist. Products like this are based on sheer ignorance and man's wanton destruction due to his inane insatiable need to control every single little thing around him.

    As far as I know is the term supersonic fairly broad and just means that the frequency is above what a human can hear, suggesting that there is no limit as to how high it can actually be. The film further doesn't specify at what frequency the sound waves are emitted. If the frequency is higher than 65 Khz, then a cat won't hear it, and over 35 Khz for dogs respectively.

    But the monkey should have given the whole thing away as a joke.

    That's a common misconception, too. Which is the worst kind when people see demonstrations of this sort. It adds to the perception that it's safe to use for the pet, when it's really not. Facts supported by vets, animal specialists and behaviorists. Here's another common misconception: purring cats are always content. Wrong. Most of the time, yes, but they also purr when they're hurt, scared, upset or uncomfortable. Misinformation and lack of education leads to ignorance and harm.

    Sorry, but you know I'm sensitive about pets. Products like this rank down there along with dog shock collars.

    That had April Fool's written all over it. There is NO way you can control an animal like that. Their premise is that it works on specific parts of the animal brain. Push button to bark.....not gonna happen.
