Perth, Australia – While the world is a complex place full of paradoxes and perspectives, there remains a simple distinction between two ancient clans: dog lovers, and non-dog lovers. And the hundreds of millions of people around the world who proudly declare membership in the former group – and have nothing but pity for members of the latter group – can now head to the App Store and download a must-have app that is designed exclusively for them and their canine companion: WoofLinks.
Created by Motomo Pty Ltd., WoofLinks is four extremely well-designed apps rolled together into one clever solution: a walk tracker, a connections list, a friend finder, and an instant messenger.
WoofLinks’ walk tracker lets users instantly view all of the walks that they’ve enjoyed with their beloved four-legged companion. In addition to the date of each walk, users can track duration, location, distance travelled, and route. Plus, all walks can be viewed on map, which makes it easy to re-trace favorite routes, or plot new courses without getting lost.
What’s more, users who have more than one dog, and who take them out for walks at different times, can set up multiple WoofLinks profiles to keep things organized. For example, they can create one profile for their energetic puppy who needs plenty of exercise to stay healthy and happy, and another profile for their laid back senior dog who is perfectly fine with a couple of brief strolls a day.
In addition, WoofLinks lets users connect with other dogs they come across during their journeys by adding them a list. Naturally, the owners of these dogs need to be WoofLinks users and accept the request. Once a connection is made, users can see the last time their “best friend’s best friends” were in a certain area, and where they are right now (if the owners are online and sharing).
As for the friend finder, WoofLinks has a handy “WoofDar” tab, which is like a radar (hence the name) that lets users see what kinds of dogs are currently in a specific area, such as a park or beach. This is an excellent way for users to chart their course towards a destination where they’re likely to find suitably-sized exercise and play partners for their pet.
And to round out the social networking fun, there’s the “Woofs” tab – which is what WoofLinks calls its simple-to-use instant messaging system. Users can send messages to individuals or groups, and share everything from weather conditions, meet-up details, warnings about skunks or other hazards, and the list goes on.
“While dogs are social creatures, they can’t operate an iPhone – which is where WoofLinks enters the picture!” commented Kirk Mower of Motomo Pty Ltd. “WoofLinks is all about celebrating dogs and the joy they add to our lives. It’s a great way for dog owners to have even more fun with their dog, and have a more fulfilling, healthier and happier life together.”
