I never bought the iPuppy series as I was waiting for "TouchPets: Dogs", but since I am generally not near wi-fi, TPD is now not as attractive of a purchase to me. I'm thinking of picking this one up now. I downloaded the Schnauzer version last night and played a bit with it. It was a bit confusing. Getting the cleanliness up seemed to take a LOOOONG time. I also wasn't sure how to display the menu icons. I just keep tapping until finally they show up.
But I mainly want this for one of my daughters who will think the puppies are really cute and has been asking for something new.
