I like alliteration. I’ve noticed lots of bloggers do Wordless Wednesday, and that’s awesome. I just don’t want anyone to think I’m stealing their thunder. So today I have “We Want That Wednesday”! We being… me and… Lana? Just roll with it.
I can’t guarantee we (again? what a weird habit) will do this every Wednesday. I just happened to run across a really cool thing on Pinterest (where else?!) and just HAD to share it with you all!
It’s a list of the top ten must have smartphone apps for dog owners! While I think all the apps are really cool, I don’t want to take any credit away from whoever it was who compiled the list, so I’ll pick out the ones I think are the coolest and/or most useful to share with you. Just a quick note: I’ve never personally tried any of these apps. My phone is a good 8+ years old, but the MOMENT I get a smartphone (soon please?!), most if not all of these are going straight on it. Enjoy!
First we have “Tagg – The Pet Tracker” by SnapTracs, Inc. It is available for free on iOS and Android. Tagg tracks your dogs’ activity and location via GPS. I’ve seen so many “lost pet” posts, I’m thinking everyone should consider something like this. Check out the following review a user left on iTunes:
Another handy app is iCam, a sort of nanny cam marketed to pet owners. This app is a whopping $4.99, but that’s a pretty small price to pay for peace of mind, if you think about it. Or if you think your neighbor is crazy and that your dogs never bark while your gone, proof is worth five bucks. Unless you’re wrong. Just trust me on this one…
Pet First Aid is another fantastic app available for both iOS and Android. This one is a little bit cheaper at just $3.99 on iOS and $2.99 on Android. I don’t know why there’s a price difference, but there is. Sorry iPhone users! Anyway, this app includes both videos and articles on animal first aid ranging from minor injuries to CPR and fractures.
The last app I’ll feature is called DoggyDatez. It’s great for sociable dog owners who are looking for new friends! DoggyDatez lets you ‘mark your territory’ and see if any other dog owners live or walk their dogs within or near your ‘territory’. It is free for Android and iOS. Just remember to be safe if you meet strangers!
There are plenty of other cool apps that do everything from list pet toxins to remind forgetful owners like myself whether they’ve fed their beloved pets yet or not (because they’ll always say you haven’t fed them yet). To see the rest, give the original list maker some love and check them out!
