What Dog (A Microsoft Garage Project)
By Microsoft Corporation
The What Dog experiment has ended. For everyone who participated, thank you. Searching for dog types is now a native feature of Bing Visual Search (https://www.bing.com/visualsearch/microsoft/whatdog).
The Microsoft Garage is an outlet for experimental projects for you to try. Learn more and discover other garage projects at http://garage.microsoft.com.

Do not upgrade! The web version does not work on photos of people.
The whole point of this is to see what dog you are, right???
IT'S GOOD DESPITE THE OTHER REVIEWS!!
My dogs are little rescue puppies and when we got them we had no clue what they were. I found this app and tried it out and it gave me one main option as well as several others on what they could be which was great! A lot of people are complaining though. Of course the app needs to be updated, the interface is a bit dated. But the idea that the app isn't 100% accurate it ridiculous. OF COURSE IT WON'T BE 100% CORRECT, YOU'RE ONLY SENDING IN A PICTURE NOT A DNA SAMPLE! This is the best free app there is no question it gives you all the information you need. If you want complete accuracy buy the $5.99 app or get your dog a DNA test!!
Works on my iPad 3, iOS 9; Doesn't work on my iPhone 5, iOS 10
I love the concept, but the app wouldn't work on my phone. [See my update below.] I tried to take a picture with it, to even import a photo, but no response except for a sound effect of pushing the button. I checked out the "what-dog" website that the app is based on, and that works just great. Please update this app.
My update: The app works great on my iOS 9 iPad 3. I guess it just either needs an update for iOS 10, or my iPhone 5 is just having a rough time with it. I'm glad I could see it working on my iPad. Thanks for the great app, Microsoft!
