Cube Dog iPhone App Review

by

Summer is under way so we’re up and at ’em very early. Swim team practices starts at 7:30am and that means mom’s not really in the mood for a big conversation for the short drive to the pool. So when the Clever Girls asked me to review this new app called Cube Dog I figured BabyGirl would have time to try it out to and from the pool for a couple of days.

I gave the phone to BabyGirl and had her search for the Cube Dog App and download it. I do have a MiFi I carry with me so she was downloaded and creating before we got to the corner! In a matter of a few minutes I was informed that her virtual dog was pink (big surprise!) and it’s name was Bubble Gum. No need for mom to help! Shortly after that all I hear is laughter and excitement coming from the back seat.

By time we got to the pool, BabyGirl had created several virtual 3D dogs, which are now appeasing her need to ask me every hour if we can have a real dog. Bubble Gum is pink and she has since created about 4 or 5 additional Cube Dogs to see all the features. Her only disappointment is that within a few hours she wanted to buy the add-on additional features and I said no. I wanted her to try out all the features. And she figured out quite a few.

So far I’ve received about 15 emails of Bubble Gum doing silly things around the house. This is because within the app BabyGirl was able to take a ‘screen cap’/photo and save it to the phone and then email it to me. Lucky me! So now I have several pictures of a crazy pink Cube Dog playing sports, sticking out its tongue, dancing, being a ninja as well as trying to hide.

Here’s a little video introduction. Overall it’s a great FREE app and kids and adults alike will enjoy creating and playing with their Cube Dog. My only disappointment was that within the first few hours of playing with the app BabyGirl wanted to buy the add-ons, saying she was bored.

 

To use the app you need an iPhone4, iPhone3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G and all need to have iOS 4.0 or higher running on the device.

From June 13 – 17, Cube Dog will be running a promotion on the Cube Dog page. So head over and Like the Cube Dog Page now and be ready to learn about the promotion as soon as it launches!

Get started today and download the free Cube Dog app from iTune to begin creating your virtual 3D dog.

Disclosure: While Cube Dog provided me with the app to review, the opinions I’ve expressed here are solely my own and represent my honest viewpoint. Cube Dog, Clever Girls Collective and I promote Blog With Integrity.

This really does put me in the mind of the entire NanoPets and Tamagatchi electronic keychain pets that were really popular some years ago… only now, obviously with better graphics.

Hi there! Thank you for visiting from #commenthour. I was never into Neopets or Tamagochi, but now that you mention it I can see the similarities. These cube dogs aren’t dependent on our care for survival, so that’s a benefit.

Hope you have a chance to try out Cube Dog.

I will need to check this out. I like to keep kid friendly apps on hand so if I’m babysitting and we need to run errands, I can easily entertain a young child!
