Want a naked moustachioed guy, or Ukulele Girl, to sing happy birthday (to insert name here)?

Crazy Dog Apps, generous supporters of Vodafone’s App Aid program – and frankly the main reason we are covering this app – has invented Moustachio that allows you to send a personalised birthday song to friends – as long as their given name is in the database.

It is both free and a cute idea. Version 1.1 for iOS (iPhone only) may either delight or cringe your birthday wishes recipient. Of course, there are premium versions that, for A$3.79, will add even more functionality but in the interests of good taste we won’t mention the mild sexual content, nudity, profanity and crude humour.

Of more interest is that the Vodafone App Aid app developed for Taronga Conservation Society ‘Wild Reporter’ is now live. It reports illegal trade of animals. The app features:

  • Report wildlife you see caught in trade
  • See reports you’ve made on a global map
  • Learn about wildlife affected by trade
  • Learn what to look out for
  • Share the app and get your friends involved

Crazy Dog apps was founded in November 2010 by the enthusiastic teen prodigy, 20 year old, Brandon Cowan. They develop iOS and Android apps - four of their apps have made it into the top 100 in Australian app stores. Its best-known app is iParkedHere which helps users remember where they parked their car and when their metre time runs out. More on Brandon here.
