Win a $25 Petco Gift Card- "App For Dog" Photo Contest!

Hey TA'ers!
My new app was just released and it's pretty cool if I say so myself- it's an app made just for dogs! It's called App for Dog and it's got a painting game, a training clicker and customizable buttons. The app is optimized for dog use with full-screen buttons, an interface designed for a dog's unique visual range, and human checks before leaving the activities. I was inspired by my friend Anna Jane who runs a dog training school in Manhattan and started offering an iPad training class. Yes, it's a real thing! Check out her website if you're in town to sign up for the class- schoolforthedogs.com.

I'm psyched for this app and I'd love to see photos of dogs enjoying the app, so I'm holding a unique giveaway here on Touch Arcade. Instead of a review contest for an iTunes card, this is a photo contest for a Petco gift card!

First you'll need to download a copy of the app, here are the links to buy it for 99 cents:
iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/app-for-dog-puppy-painting/id693958842?ls=1&mt=8
Google: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ames.appfordog
Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/App-Dog-Painti...dp/B00EXWEXSG/
Nook: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/app-...=2940147147979

Call your dog over and introduce him to the app- here is a video from Anna Jane of School of the Dogs with some tips on how to train your dog to use an iPad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bpNwOi8Wrg Alternatively, a little dab of peanut butter on the screen works too!

Take a photo of your newly tech savvy dog using the app (please make sure the app is viewable in the photo) and email it to contest@appfordog.com with your dog's name to enter. Any device is fine! If you take a photo of your dog creating a painting, please send along the finished painting as well!

*There is a camera button to take a photo of the finished painting- it'll save to your photo album. Alternatively, you can just take a screenshot of the finished painting.

The contest will end September 16th, so you have a little over a week to enter! I'll select the best photo then and send the winner a $25 Petco e-gift card- good for a extra bag of kibble or just a fancy new outfit for your dog!

This could be your dog on September 17th. Also picture an iPad in there.

By entering this contest, you retain all rights to the photo but allow me to use it for promotional material- promo banners, ads, videos, etc. Same for the paintings that your dogs make. Can dogs retain ownership of IP? I am not sure, you can work it out between the two of you, but again you both allow me to use the paintings for advertising materials. I am not liable for peanut butter in your device!! Use peanut butter responsibly

Thanks for reading and taking part in this unique contest I hope you and your furry friends have fun!!

Hey everyone! I was having trouble retrieving promo codes from Apple yesterday, but managed to get ahold of some today- they are posted in this thread http://forums.toucharcade.com/showth...27#post2961427

So if you want to try it out to see if your dog will dig it or not, grab a promo code and check!
