Cube Dog Review - A New FREE Downloadable Virtual Pet App for iPhone & iPod Touch

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.

Family iPhone & iPod Apps

Like other Baby Boomers who can ever forget the Pet Rock craze of the 70s?  Now there's a new trending pet toy of the hi tech variety for 2011 that I think -- if my own kids' experience with this is any indication -- might also be a big hit with the younger generation. 

It's called Cube Dog, a fun, free new family-friendly game that was just released.  With this app, both kids and kid-like adults can easily and quickly design their own unique 3D virtual dog pet.  After you've created your very own little animal, you can take it anywhere to play with you on your mobile device (even to places where regular dogs aren't allowed).

The app includes really cool features like being able to take a snapshot of your virtual pet with the camera on your iPhone and then sharing it with your friends and family via email.  Plus, Cube Dogs can do everything from sit, walk, play chase, and fetch a bone to playing a ball game.

Cube Dog runs on

The Cube Dog app is a snap to play with.  After we downloaded this no-cost app to my iPhone 3GS, my 14 year-old triplet son was able to create his own new virtual pup in just 10 minutes.

"It's so cute and fun because you can get your doggy to sit like a real pet, " he says.  "Once you set it up with the free body parts they give you,  there are three different extra packs of things you can then buy for 99 cents each as add-ons.  These include additional animations like dog movements and tricks, facial expressions, and fun accessories like dog clothes and toys."

Though the Cube Dog app itself doesn't really live and breath, it is a fun and entertaining way for those who can't have an actual pet in real life.  The fact that kids don't have to feed, water, or walk this little guy to keep him happy and healthy is definitely a plus.  Moms and dads will be especially thrilled about this maintenance-free pet puppy, since for once we won't get stuck with scooping the poop like we seem to end up doing in the real world.

  1. I tried the free version and lost interest. Kinda cute, but not much different to the talking animals apps only without talking..!
