A strange new app has turned up for users of iOS devices called PetMatch. The app is cool in that it is designed to help people find the perfect pet to adopt in their local area. The odd part about the app is that it is designed to help people find a pet that looks just like they want.
The app lets you upload a photo of the type of dog or cat that you are looking for. An algorithm inside the app then takes that uploaded image and measures the shape of the face, distance between the eyes, and other parameters.
Once those measurements are done, it looks through millions of photos from shelters across the country to find adoptable pets that looks similar to the photo you uploaded. The app might also work if your pet is missing helping you to find it at a shelter. The app is available for download on the App Store right now.
