forawalk is the 1st social networking app designed by and for dog-owners and aims to enhance the walk of your dog.
✔ Break the routine of the lonesome, repetitive walks
✔ Use the app and meet up with other owners near your location
✔ Share the experience of walking one’s dog
✔ Exchange pleasantries
✔ For free
Socialize you say? Well, I said it, but you get the point. Yep, it is true. Primarily, we noticed that most of the walks (our own included) are not heavy on chit-chat and special moments. You do get the occasional nod from a fellow dog-owner but that’s it. Our main goal is to remedy that and make it so every walk can be a unique experience.
As per our moto, a 10’ walk around the block can be just that -or it can be so much more.
How it works:
It doesn’t take more than a few minutes to set it all up, from profile to walk. Here's why:
✔ Sign in with your Facebook profile (or use our guest account first if you want to get a feel of our app), hassle-free login
✔ Basic info is being filled out through Facebook, no need to type stuff
✔ Edit your profile to add your pet(s)
✔ And you are basically done. Each time you open the app, you automatically see the results based on your filters and location. Go ahead, schedule a walk!
What more does forawalk offer past the main routine of the meet-and-greet in your vicinity?
✔ Personalized search patterns for fellow dog enthusiasts through the use of smart filters
✔ A spam free experience -the bane of every online effort. Only people that you choose to share a walk with can contact you and only during the walk
✔ No friends or buddies. You already have a Facebook profile, you don’t need another one
✔ “Proximity availability” toggle button
For those of us that just want to chill in the park with our dogs, we either want to socialize on the spot, or not. By toggling the profile button, you set your availability radius up to 500 meters and hook up with other available owners in your immediate vicinity. The point of presence is always you.
The core philosophy behind forawalk is all about transforming a daily routine to a pleasant experience, building an “offline” community (the walk takes place in an offline environment to begin with) and promoting the exercise of our dogs in an ever-increasing pet-obesity world.
This is all forawalk stands for. And we want you to be a part of it.
