Cube Dog App Review

When I was younger I received a birthday party gift that left me less than enthused, a pet rock! About the only thing that caught my attention about that gift was that it oddly resembled a used bar of Irish Spring Soap. You know when the shape of the soap changes from the way it came in the box, that's how the rock looked. That interesting bit about it lasted for like a minute, and it then became a paperweight and topic of conversation that generally leads others to open up about the less than stellar gifts they have received throughout the years. (And this being near Father's Day, most guys I know said they'd prefer a Pet Rock to a Tie, so that's saying something!)

Unfortunately those were what I refer to as 'P.I.' days, it's an acronym much like BC, except it means 'Pre-iPod' Days! :)

I've probably owned almost every generation and type of iPod out there, the shuffle, the classic, the touch, I LOVE my iPods. (My single complaint about my iPod Touch is that it rarely plays nice where there is free wifi). I have TONS of apps, but what speaks volumes about an App in my collection, is which ones make the cut when I sync. Let's face it, there is only a certain amount of space. And that space is divided among music, pictures, videos, contacts and even movies. So I'm very selective about which Apps I sync.

I've come across one that I wish I would have had back then, I certainly would have loved it way more than the pet rock!

What is Cube Dog and What Makes it Cool Anyway?

Think all the fun of a real dog without the fur (that makes allergic people sneeze), the poop (which you can get fined for if you don't clean it up), the walks where your beloved fur baby drags you around at 100 MPH when he spots a squirrel in the park, the hassles of paper training, or the incessant barking that annoys your neighbors.

And if all that hasn't sold you yet, think of the cool mom, dad, aunt, uncle brownie points you'll score during those long summer road trips with the little ones who have probably grown tired of the same DVD you have in the car, and if you don't have an entertainment system in the car, then you really need Cube Dog!
