Cube Dog iPhone App Review – Frugal Novice

Cube Dog iPhone App Review

Thank you to Cube Dog for sponsoring this review. For more information about Cube Dog please visit the Facebook page or download it on iTunes.

I’ve mentioned before how much I use my phone – I don’t know if I’ve mentioned what a lifesaver it can be when I’m out and about with the boys. They love to play games, and J can operate the phone just as well as I can. I’m always interested in new (and especially free) apps for them to try.

The Cube Dog app is reminiscent of giga pets that were so popular when I was in high school, only a lot cuter and much more interactive! When you start up the app, you are able to create your own dog. You can select head shape, eyes, nose/mouth, body, and color to make your dog your own.

Once you build your dog, you can have it interact with you. Fetching is so overrated – the Cube Dog can hit the ball back to you with his own little bat. :) You just have to press a button and interaction options pop up. If you take too long to interact with your dog, he’ll fall asleep and start snoring – so don’t let him get bored!

Your dog can even “call” you (No, you don’t actually talk to him. Dogs can’t talk, remember!)

My favorite part of the app is the ability to take your dog’s photo in your environment. For instance, tonight my dog hung out with Josie and Brian on the couch:

Josie looks a little skeptical about him, but I’m sure she’ll learn to love him. :)

I think this is a really cute app, but is probably one the boys will get more use out of than we will. They think the dog is fun and like making him do different things – and have fun trying different options when building their dogs.

There are extras you can purchase for the Cube Dog, but it’s not a requirement to enjoy the app. Find out more about what all you can do by watching this video about it:

Also, be sure and “Like” Cube Dog on Facebook, and keep an eye out for a contest they’ll be running June 13-17!

    Cube Dog looks like a cute app for kids, but balancing screen time with other activities (like interacting with real pets) is important.
