APOPKA, FL, September 07, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Inspired by a curious little dachshund, Dog Talkie
, a new iPad and iPhone app being developed by Azymous Interactive
, will allow dogs to send text messages and give voice to their needs.
The idea for Dog Talkie came about when Azymous Interactive founder David Kahan's little dachshund Willow inquisitively touched his iPad with her nose, triggering a video to be played. 'It immediate set off light bulbs with me,"
said Kahan. "Why not write an app that allows dogs to communicate with humans?"
Before long, Azymous was working on the prototype for Dog Talkie.
Dog Talkie is now in full development, and Azymous Interactive is looking to raise funds to help with engineering, translations, dog training, android support, and promotional costs via the popular crowdfunding platform Indiegogo
. "We went with Indiegogo for many reasons, but the most important was their support of charitable causes,"
said Kahan. "We will be donating 10% of all proceeds from Dog Talkie to Franklin's Friends, a wonderful animal welfare group that benefits the SPCA of Central Florida. Every single copy of Dog Talkie sold will benefit homeless dogs and other animals, and that really motivates us."
Backers of the Dog Talkie Indiegogo Campaign
receive many different perks, varying from copies of the Dog Talkie apps, t-shirts with little Willow's picture, and dedicated web pages for their backer's dogs. "We want to make this both worthwhile and fun for our backers, who, like, us, really love their dogs,"
said Kahan. With a successful Indiegogo campaign, Azymous anticipates releasing its first version of Dog Talkie late this fall. Those interesting in supporting Dog Talkie can go to the Dog Talkie Indiegogo web page at www.indiegogo.com/dogtalkie
