What is DogCam?

DogCam is the #1 camera app for your dog. 

In essence it's a simple camera app that plays sounds to get your dog to look to camera every time.

The in-camera sound effects include barking, high-pitch whistles, squeaky toys, cats, animal noises, or one of over 100 more sounds that are sure to get your dog's attention!

If your dogs’ in the frame but looking off into the distance, tap a sound button to play a sound effect, and – bingo! – your dog will look straight to camera to try to work out where the loud noise is coming from.
You can also record videos whilst playing sound effects, to capture those more animated memories of your doggo. Did somebody say head tilt? 

Featured as App of the Day by Apple 

DogCam has been featured by Apple as App of the Day in over 140 countries.

Quote from the Apple App Store editorial team:
"The app is incredibly easy to use: just point, make some noise and shoot. When you've got a picture or video you're thrilled with, then you can share it straight from the app onto your favourite social feeds. Did somebody say #pupfluencer?"

Privacy by design

DogCam takes your privacy seriously. 

We don’t store any photos or videos within the app or on our servers, they get saved straight to your device's built-in photo library. 

Using your device's photo library means that you photos are backed up securely as part of iCloud backups and iCloud Photos.

No personal data is collected from the app. Only anonymous data is collected for analytics purposes, and this is only to help monitor app usage and identify bugs.

Oh, and there's no ads!

Accessibility support   

Everyone should be able to take great photos of their pupperooni, and DogCam makes that possible with extensive accessibility support. 

Sound selection and photo capture is made easy with tailored voice-over support, meaning the next sound effect is always just a swipe or tap away for users with limited vision. Record videos, activate timers, jump to the photo library – all features are accessible through voice-over read outs.

Here’s what one of users had to say about DogCam accessibility:

“The sounds make him (my dog) pay attention so no more side head shots. And the fact that it’s voice-over compatible means that even I, with my limited sight, can take pictures. Good job.”
