This story contains not a whisker of judgment.
Yes, there’s a new app, called “Rate My Pussycat” (RMPC) in the Apple App Store. A new entry from Apptigo International, it follows on the heels (or should we say paws) of the company’s wildly successful SCORE matchmaker app.
“The app is a popularity and sharing app founded on one truth: the Internet loves cats,” a statement provided to MMW reads. “The app combines the popularity of cat-related content with ability to post and share photos and videos via social media, rate uploads, and create custom cat images.”
Forget that hard-driving news app — it’s cats we crave when we want to relax.
“Rate My Pussycat is a social app that allows for a rich and entertaining experience for users,” said Apptigo president David Steinberg. “With RMPC, users are treated to new, hilarious content each time they open the app, a perfect way to wind down after a long day. Though the weekly internet holiday Caturday is celebrated on Saturday, RMPC makes it so that every day can be Caturday.”
Hours spent on cats? You betcha — and this app is loaded with options.
“With RMPC, users can spend hours scrolling through cat & kitten pictures,” explained Steinberg. “They can also upload photos of their own cats and decorate them with accessories from a library of over 120 wigs, mustaches, beards, sunglasses, funky hats, kitty clothing, and many more swag items. They can upload their own short cat videos, appropriately dubbed ‘Catsnips.’ Like other social sharing apps, users can rate other users’ cat photos and hopefully have their own cat rated highly enough to win the coveted ‘Whiskers Award.’ Most importantly, app users can share all content across their social networks with a simple tap.”
Apptigo also has a charitable component built into RMPC: the app allows users to connect with local cat rescue and adoption agencies so that more cats-in-need have a greater chance at finding a home.
“We are building a network that allows all cat adoption agencies and rescues to feature the cats they have for adoption in our adoption showcase feed, allowing them to connect to users,” noted Steinberg.
The app is free. Revenue streams will be generated via ads within the app as well as upsells for customizing user cat pictures.
We could say this is a real hairball idea. But scratch that. We expect it to be as popular among humans as catnip is for kitties.
