iPhone App for Dog Lovers

There is a Free app in the app store named “Off Leash“. It lists dog parks in United States where you can run your dog. I downloaded the app and it ran perfectly.

When you open the app there is a splash screen with a silhouette of a dog and a command to “Sit. Stay.” This only last 3 seconds. The main screen has 3 buttons, Locate Dog Park, Eukanuba TV and Tell A Friend.

Click the Dog Park Locator button to find a park. There are 2 methods of location. Search by Zip Code where you are presented with a standard keypad entry to enter the zip code. Clicking the Search button will take you to a map with pins and a listing of the park near that zip code. Click a listing to get more details. Clicking the “Find Dog Parks Near Me” Uses Location services on you iPhone. Once you have okayed the app to use location services, pressing the “Find Near Me” button will take you to the map screen. Pressing the back button will take you back to previous screen.

Eukanuba TV screen takes you to a screen with choice of videos about puppies, dogs and nutrition. Clicking a Channel will take you to a wheel screen choice. Scroll through the video titles, then click the Watch Episode button. A video app opens and will start when enough loads. At the end of the movie, you return to the selection screen. There are excellent footage of dogs. The videos are good quality and contain some good information, but leave a little to be desired.

Use the Paw Print button at the bottom or home button where they show up to return to main screen.

If you know of a park or they missed the location of a park that didn’t get in Off Leash press the little info button at the bottom of the screen. There is a message there and a button to email Off Leash app support. There is also a suggest a park button on the screen after selecting a park.

The app is created by Eukanuba.

Off Leash is a good app that will be great if we all help. I did a search for dog parks in my area and it showed that my favorite park miles away from its actual location. Off Leash also didn’t know we had a Dog Beach nearby. I have not checked all of the locations yet, but I am sure they are more accurate than the first.

This can be especially helpful for people that travel with their dog.

Off Leash is easy to use will get better if we all help locate parks in your state or town and send an email support.

iPhone 1 Tap Connect App

A Twitter friend put me onto this app. You Should check it out. It is Free for now.

Get Connect App in iTunes

Connect to any Department in about 1000 of the Most Popular US Companies with 1 tap.

Connect solves one of the most frustrating problems in life: Phone Trees.

I hate calling a toll free number and navigating a maze of options to get an operator or to the right department?

“Please listen carefully as our menu has changed” -#%#$@%#

“Press 1 for English, press 2.” -@#@%#$!@#

Connect is a simple way to get to the right person when dialing a Companies Toll Free Number. Want to speak to the Operator? Just tap the button to be connected. Want to speak to the Sales Rep? Just tap one button. Need to speak to someone about returns, exchanges and refunds? Just tap a single button and you’re there.

Connect dials selected toll-free number and automatically sends a string of tones to get you the right department without any hassle.

Connect integrates phone tree maps of almost 1000 popular U.S. and Canadian companies. Some popular UK numbers have also been included. Look for more in the future. I understand they are working on a U.K. and an Australian version.

Future Connect version have promised to have an update feature to keep up with the company phone tree changes.

I suggest you go get it now. It’s Free.
