Culture on the Cheap
From The New York Shitty Inbox: Only In Park Slope
I have been writing New York Shitty for almost three years now. In that time I have seen a sizable increase in emails “pitching” one product or another. I usually ignore them— but today I am going to make an exception. Read on and you’ll understand why. Tyler writes:
Local Park Slope dog owner here with some shit news.Â I wrote an iphone application for dog owners and dog walkers which is available at the iTunes store this week, it’s all about pee and poo.Â Trying to get the word out about the application, DogiDuty lets you or your dog walker send reports after each walk to let you know if Fido went pee or poo, was given food or water, and other notes.Â I designed this app to help me an my wife better manage our schedule between errands, late nights at the office, and after work activities.Â Our dog walkers use it and so do we.
I checked out their web site* and this appears be for real. Although I do not have a dog I am very tempted to take this person up on his offer as I can think of some very fun alternative uses for this product. My grandmother (whose fixation with “regularity” was the stuff of legend) would have loved this product; instead of simply asking me if I did a bowel movement I every time I exited the bathroom I could send her a full report replete with color commentary and perhaps a picture or two?!? God I love technology!
*Do check this out. It has mock-ups of the user interface which features and poop and pee “checklist”. Priceless.
