What's New in Version 2.0.4
- Bug fixes
1. Wants access to location services, while I understand why, I would prefer to manually put in my location. There are not any dogs in my area and I would prefer to type in specific locations than be limited to a 500 mile radius.
2. App wants Facebook or Twitter login info without providing a good reason why. If it is for the application process, then I consider access to those apps an invasion of privacy. Access to those apps are not good indicators of a good applicant. So what, they have a Facebook or Twitter account, it does not make them a good pet parent.
3. It is very short on explanations as to why it needs certain information and access.
4. No information on how rescue groups can sign up.
Couldn't be happier
About1 year ago we met our puppy through a rescue that we found using bark buddy. They had a litter of 4 puppies and had put a pic of one them up on bark buddy. We we're able to get in touch with the rescue via bark buddy and met the puppies a few days later. We ended up adopting one of the girls in the litter and took her home 3 weeks later. She is now just over a year old and she is THE BEST. Like any puppy she was a lot of work at first but now she is trained housebroken and so loving. Now we want another!!!! Can't say enough good things about this app.
I ❤️ Barkbuddy
I love BarkBuddy. It's such a great idea and I love looking through all of the dogs. I wish I could take them all! It's a very easy app to use and the settings help to narrow your search. I like the online application that can be sent to all of the different shelters instead of filling out a dozen different applications.
