Over the years many websites have promoted virtual pets to go along with your toy pets. By entering a code into a website your child could could do a number of things to care for their pet.
With these particular sites, your child's actual toy pet could not interact with what was happening on the screen of the tech device for the virtual pet.
That now has changed with Furby Boom.
The Furby App 2013 Has Arrived
While the 2012 version of Furby did have an associated app that went along with the toy, the app was only available for iOS devices.
Furby owners that did not have that particular device could not take advantage of the additional features available through the app.
That has now changed in 2013. The Furby app is now available as follows:
The Furby App is currently supported on the following devices: Samsung Galaxy SII, Note, Motorola Razr Maxx, Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, Google Nexus 7, Galaxy Tab SIII, and Fire HDX 8.9. Device must be running OS 2.3.3 or above.

An additional word of warning: The Furby Boom app is ONLY compatible with the 2013 Furby Boom. While Furby Boom will interact with previous generations of Furby, the app will not work with the earlier versions.
The Furby app lets your child feed your Furby, get eggs and hatch virtual Fublings, play games, give their Furby a shower and let Furby go to the bathroom.
The dashboard of the app will give an assessment as to the current needs of their Furby. Does Furby need fed? Is Furby dirty and needs a shower? Does Furby need to go to the bathroom?
