Walking the Dog Just Got Easier Thanks to Purina’s ‘Petometer’
Any dog owners out there looking for an app to help remind you to walk “Butch,” or keep track of how many miles you and your tongue hanging drool machine actually walked? Look no more, you tail wagging warrior! Purina has teamed up with Triad Retail Media in an ongoing effort to keep consumers engaged via digital mediums. Together they have created the “Purina Petometer.” This free app allows users to create a “Pet Profile” and add up to 6 different dogs in which to upload photos, track walks and view recommended exercises.
Petometer is a great way for dog owners to stay on top of Fido’s walking routes by tracking time, distance, pace and route, courtesy of Google Maps. You can view a history of past routes and set reminders for future walks, which can also be synced to your phone’s calender. Petometer also allows you to share customized posts about your walking adventures via Facebook. Share a great spot with your friends or invite someone for a double dog dash through the park. Either way, Purina Petometer is a fun and engaging way to keep you and your canines healthy and happy.

“Android, meet ChromeOS.”
Not much more than that right now, but certainly enough to get excited about. If you’re one of the lucky few who has received a CR-48 from Google, will you consider hacking Android onto it if/when it becomes possible to do so?
