This app is extremely fun and it is actually quite accurate as well surprisingly. So far, the dogs that I’ve scanned on here were pretty much spot on with the breed type or if it’s mixed with something else possibly. It’s kind of an addicting app too because you just want to go out and find more and more dogs to scan and see what they really are. I also like that it gives you a few different options to choose from uploading. You can either do a picture or a set of pictures or you can even do a short video clip too. I find the video clip to be a bit more accurate than the pictures themselves, but either way, both methods are very very accurate and you can even scan the same dog as many times as you want to see if you get different results on each try. Very cool!!!

well it was a ton better back in august. this app is kinda trash now. listen, the scanning feature isn't that bad, but i'm pretty sure it just goes off of color and points because it's not very accurate, it's said my dog is anything but the breeds he is. but now onto the real problem: the social feature. you have the idiots who just wanna cause drama, you have the dog theifs, and you have the occasional zoophile. yes those have all happened. people complain about anything you do, and then your the one who gets hated even tho you've done nothing wrong. but the biggest problem of them all is that they're banning random people. for NO REASON. email them? you get a snippy response, because that's 'so professional'. there are people who are getting banned for doing nothing, for example; moondog. she's one of the sweetest people on the app and she's been banned i believe twice? it's so annoying. they take 5 minutes to ban an innocent person, but you have a person telling people to k!ll themselves and threatening them, and it takes them days to ban them. not to mention that the app takes forever to load and there's a ton of errors. honestly if your looking to download this don't even bother, it's awful. if you want a sweet community get amino and get dogs amino. and if you want a scanner, just get a different one.

Easy to use and informative!

This app beats the others I tried and immediately deleted due to their uselessness! I love how you can upload 5 pics at once to get a more accurate identification! Every pic worked and it gave specific breed percentages with tons of information to help you confirm the breed, such as weight, size, personality, colors, patterns, eye shape, and even specific ear dimensions! By reading the main breed description, I was able to confirm many traits and feel fairly certain she is a Rat Terrier mix with a little Jack Russell Terrier. Even the sassy personality description sounds just like her! I was able to eliminate Toy Fox Terrier with the detailed size, weight, and coat information the app provided. Who knows how accurate the app really is, but I had fun and learned a lot! 80% dog breed match is good enough for me and beats paying $150 for a DNA test.
