The selfie craze is not going away anytime soon. Yet, anyone with a dog and a mobile phone knows how hard it is to take the perfect “delfie” (selfie with your dog). Dogs have no natural reason to look at your phone, they’re usually looking someplace else, and hey, there goes a squirrel!
After a month-long North American soft-launch, Delfie, LLC, sister company to the popular online community Dudes With Dogs®, announces the global launch of DELFIE™, the new iPhone app that helps you TAKE BETTER SELFIES WITH YOUR DOG™. The app’s target user base is everyone with an iPhone and a dog (and those who love them!). Download your copy athttps://itunes.apple.com/us/app/delfie/id1085626859?mt=8.
“I’ve always encouraged my online community members to take “delfies” because I think it’s the most tangible way of showing your love for your dog and connecting with other dog lovers. But then I realized how hard it is to take a good delfie! Some have tried to solve the problem with phone attachments, but who wants to carry a tennis ball in their jeans or pepperoni in their purse? I knew I could solve it with software, while making it fun and social,” says Delfie, LLC founderChris Rolczynski.
CAPTURE. DELFIE works by pairing fun, dog-sensitive sounds with your phone’s camera function. Surprise your dog using one of our 28 native sounds like Squeaky toy, Mad squirrel, and Rocket, or record your own sounds, like your dog’s name or favorite toy. You can even borrow your friends’ sounds!
SHARE. Edit and post your delfies on DELFIE’s in-app network and easily share them on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
CONNECT. More than just a fun photo app, DELFIE’s also a social network for dog lovers. Meet other Dog Dads and Dog Moms in your town and around the world. Search for your favorite breeds, ask for advice, and celebrate the joys and sometimes sorrows of dog parenting with others just like you.
DOWNLOAD. In a world of mostly freemium apps, DELFIE is launching using a different approach. The app is available for a flat $1.99on the App Store, with no advertising, hidden costs, in-app purchases, or subscriptions. The app is now available in every country. An Android version is planned for the future.
GIVE. The company is also utilizing a unique and charitable launch strategy by donating a portion of the proceeds from each app install that results from any of the following short download links. Please use and share the download link associated with your favorite charity below, and together, let’s raise money for at-risk animals.
