Puppy time!

My friend Ritik and his friends just launched the most adorable iPhone app: It's Puppy Time! The app sends you new puppy photos three times a day to bring a smile to your face.

"My girlfriend Erin has a tough job, and I was trying to figure how to cheer her up when she's having a bad day," says Ritik. "I started sending her cute photos of puppies. Then, when I was talking to my designer friend Khoi, we came up with the idea of an app that would automatically send her puppy photos whenever she wanted."
How awesome is that?

P.S. They're now working on "It's Kitten Time" which will be out next month.

Joanna, this is such a cute idea! There is nothing as cheering as the face of a cute puppy. This just put me in a good mood!

This is such a cute idea, and I just love the name!

Eliza said...

Amazing idea! Definitely holding out for the kittens version...

Joanna Goddard said...

i love the name, too. and you can set the puppy photos to arrive at a certain time each day (like when you wake up, when you know you have a stressful meeting, etc.) - too cute. :)

My daughter would so love this.

My husband really wants a dog, but I am definitely not ready. Maybe I will get him the app. He would seriously love it.

Amazing how a little thing like a picture of a puppy can actually make you smile and give you perspective. Great idea!

My husband is a computer science professor and this sounds like some zany his students would think up (we have regular dinners on our farm for his students, especially the ones who live far away from their families -- the stuff the come up with is hilarious). I'm totally passing this on to my hubs. Thanks!!

There seem to be kitten people and dog people. I am a dog person, for sure!

Jenny Attwater said...

Just downloaded it :)

This couldn't be more well timed! I just heard half an hour ago that I succesfully applied for an internship at Battersea Dogs Home (quite a well known charity in England) and I couldn't be more happy! The app will be a treat to myself.

Thanks Joanna

Oh my goodness, Joanna this reminds me... I remembered seeing the Puppy Love post a while back with the shaggy dog and I laughed out loud when I saw this hilarious newspaper shaggy dog over at CS Post & Co. http://www.cspost.com/view.php?item=8508&category=173&zipcode=&side=coolfinds

They look like they could be related!

Teri B. said...

such a funny app, but so true! they should let users submit their own puppy photos! how excited would you be to see your pup - or someone you know - pop up throughout the day?! i'd love to see my frenchies!

Ritik said...

Hi Teri, and all -

We definitely take submission of puppy photos... by email, though, if you want to email to info@puppytime.com. We didn't add a submit feature to the app just because we are trying to keep things super simple.

Thanks so much to everybody for checking out Puppytime, and to Joanna for sharing!
