Great App when photos are working

I really enjoyed using this app. I often saw pets featured here that I hadn’t seen on petfinder so it was a nice companion app. Unfortunately, for the past several weeks, most of the posted photos are not showing up. I tried deleting and re-adding the app but that did not help.

When photos are working, I’d give it 5 stars. While they are not working, 0 stars (because they are a key feature of the app). So right now, I split the difference and gave it 3 stars with the hope that the issue with the photos will be resolved soon.

This app is more of a proof of concept and not a full release. The smallest range you can search on is a 10 mile radius. Yes, get ready to get in that car and drive 10 miles to meet your new dog friend.

The dog profile screen is laughably simple and provides almost no filtration options. More like a college project then a full iPhone app.

Amazing Service

4 years ago this app showed me a beautiful chocolate chihuahua that NEVER popped up on my Petfinder searches. Even though she’d been on Petfinder for a few months. To all those upset about having to drive 10 miles to adopt a dog? Seriously, you don’t deserve a dog. This app is wonderful!
