TNW Quick Hit
Love it: Faster way to send out local alerts about lost pets
Hate it: Needs option to push alerts to Twitter / Facebook for more reach
F**k it, we'll do it live!
Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.
Losing a pet is an anxiety-filled experience on its own and nothing adds more anxiety than explaining the situation to others while trying to track down your pet. Petline is an app that issues a lost pet alert in a matter of seconds to nearby Petline users.
Register yourself and complete profiles for your pets. Once complete, you can issue lost pet alerts by simply selecting the lost pet from your profile. Alerts include your contact information, pet details and pet photo. Nearby Petline users receive push notifications for your alert and have the details needed to help.
Overall, a great app for pet owners that also has a neat Around Me feature to help you find pet-related places nearby, such as veterinarians or pet day cares. I look forward to more auto-publish plugins beyond Petline users for increased reach as well as options for including a reward.
