The Creepiest App Ever: Petmatch
Thanks to CNET for bringing an icky app to my attention.
I don’t think I would’ve noticed this app if so many of my friends hadn’t posted about losing their pets on Facebook lately. The app, Petmatch, find a lookalike pet to replace your dead one. While you let that sink in, I’ll explain.
You upload a picture of your dearly departed furry friend and the app scours the internet searching for adoptable pets that look just like Fluffy. It notifies you of matches and you get to replace your animal.
Two problem that I see are: my pets have distinct personalities that can’t be replaced and this must mean an app for human replacement is on the horizon! Creepy!
Petmatch is only available for iPhone, so Andriod users…rejoice!
