Dog Dating and Other Terrible App Ideas

They center on self-punishment, urine

(Newser) – Dating for dogs? An app to time pee breaks? Among the multitudes of clever mobile apps come plenty that are duds from the start. Developer Fueled shares some of the most ridiculous pitches it has received, via Business Insider:

  • Shock treatment: Linked to an electric bracelet, this app is all about self-punishment. It would help you out by shocking you when you're doing something unhealthy—for instance, spending too much time sitting at your desk without moving around.
  • Communal urination: If you want buddies in the bathroom, this is for you. The app would inform your friends that you're planning a trip to pee; it would, theoretically, be handy when you can't tell them yourself because you're in a club or a movie theater.

  • Parking-spot dealer: This would apparently be a combination of eBay and airBnB—for public parking. Users would have to hold a spot as others bid on it, and the pay would be meager.
  • A dog-dating app: From the message Fueled received, it's unclear whether this involves dating other dog owners, or just dogs dating dogs. The pitch: "an iOS APP (Identical) to Tinder. Except with Dogs. Purpose. So Dogs/Owners can have MeetUps at the local dog park."
