Thanks to this app you'll be able to have a pet fish that you get to carry around with you everywhere, interact with, care for, and enjoy.

Build Your Family

Here's a chance to build your own underwater family with the TouchFish™ app. As mentioned there are more than 50 fish to choose from and include both saltwater and fresh water varieties. As an added bonus this is a universal app so you can enjoy your pet on any of your iDevices exactly where you left off. Just like in real life you'll need to feed your fish, look after them, raise them, and then you can even sell them since you'll have so many fish. Thanks to the 3D graphics and beautiful underwater elements you'll feel as though you're staring at a real scene.

These in-app purchases range from $0.99 to $74.99. The app has 3.5 out of five stars from users who have made comments about the incredible graphics, the ease of use, and the seemingly endless amount of options to customize your tank and your experience.

So what can you expect when you play the TouchFish™ app? Well, you are given the opportunity to really personalize your experience as you choose your creatures, plants, and even the items you choose to decorate with.

You can use the game in a number of ways: choose from landscape, portrait, small screen, or large screen. To help you out in your journey of building the perfect environment you have Stewart the Starfish as your helper/guide.
