    Pets Adoption beta Report

    Google Pixel XL 2, Android 8.1.0; Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Android 6.0.1

    Application Idea

    • The problem to solve - the are a lot of countries where homeless pets are in troubles and people are trying to help them on their own.
    • Application goals - the app aims to connect people who took homeless pets in the home for some time and people who want to take a pet for adoption.

    Business Value

    This app is more a charity project. I think it will be possible to place a donation button which can become quite useful. Donated money can be used for service development and other improvements.

    • Use location data to search for nearby pets available for adoption.
