To say the ads are intrusive is an understatement. Every action you take gets an ad and the interface is similar to those websites that have 30 download now buttons trying to get you to download a virus. The TikTok ad is app-breaking. It is unskippable with no X to click. Even opening it still takes you back to the ad. There's no way around it but to exit the app. I did manage to get one picture in and it identified the breed incorrectly. Why would they think we'd pay for a pro version? 0/5. ;(

1-27-21 App problems have been fixed. Great job! Update 9/27/20-Developer updated app. When scanning photo(s) from gallery the app no longer works properly but constantly flips back into camera mode. Unfortunate. From 5 to 1 star and deleting app. Will check back periodically to see if it's fixed. 7/31/20-So far, a truly wonderful and innovative app. I'm really enjoying it.

I got the perfect shot and it correctly identified the dachshund in my dog. It all just depends on the perfect shot (all you have to do is just take a side picture of your dog looking at you helps). It just should lower the analysis time and have a better accuracy when people take pictures of the owners dogs. But I love it even if they didn't do that.
