Most Helpful Reviews
It really is a great app, but ... - This is one of the most original, fun, and, frankly amazing applications out there. But there is an issue with updates. EVERY SINGLE TIME you update to the latest version (and there have been several), you lose the bonus content you got three and two versions ago. SIGH, you have to install it AGAIN, and possibly re-download it if you haven't saved the installer. This is amateur hour. Really, amateur hour.
Not ready for the App store - Crashes Often - After importing a model and painstakingly placing the face points, the application crashes when you try to save your work. The application needs to be tested and debugged further before distribution. These feature should not be advertised if it does not work.

Great - This Program Is an Absolute blast.
Straightforward and simply fun! - I have been a long time user of Crazy Talk and have enjoyed it immensely. Whether you are just fooling around, enhancing a training video or presentation, Crazy Talk will capture everyone’s attention!
I used this to make a business presentation more memorable. - I had a client who repeated the same presentation over and over again and the content was dry. By using Crazytalk, I introduced Terry Gilliam (Monty Python) styled animations into the presentation and not only did they put everybody in a better mood, it was shown retention of the presentation improved. CrazyTalk is easy to use. It shows you your changes in real time and after a while you’ll really be enjoying yourself. I found myself mesing around and calling coworkers over for a good laugh. Thinking of starting a youtube channel and dropping these things into it. If only they made a product that could make me funny.
Fun Animation Program - Crazytalk is a fun animation program that your entire family can enjoy. With it’s realistic lip-sync technology, you can bring your animation alive! I highly recommend this program!
Crazy Talk 7 Works Great! - No special skills needed. Just your imagination. Easy to make and no software issues. Get it!
