"With the addition of the application, consumers can now get real-time turn-by-turn direction from their BlackBerry. If their pet does go missing, they have the best tools to recover them as quickly as possible."

    The SpotLight mobile application for the BlackBerry provides pet owners the capability of monitoring their pet right at their fingertips. The application is feature rich, yet easy to use. The application utilizes the BlackBerry's GPS capabilities so when the owner is tracking their pet, it will update their current location as well as the pets, all in real-time.
