This app is not intended to be educational.
Nearly every pet owner enjoys imagining what their pet would say or making comments on their behalf. Now you can take the game a step higher by letting your pet send texts to your contacts within the app. Pets can talk about their current situation, their thoughts on life, or anything else you can dream up. You can attach photos to the messages, so your pet can “send a selfie.” The game could be quite entertaining, especially for friends and family members who are distant and miss a favorite animal, such as a child away at college.
The app also offers connections with other app users via a posting board where you can “like” and “follow” others. Users may find some like-minded pet owners there and make friends in the real world.
This app is free on the App Store. The free version allows you to set up two pet profiles in addition to your own, which will be plenty for most people. In order to message others, though, both parties need to have the app installed on their devices. Once that’s set up, you can message as much as you want.
