New York is becoming widely known as the city that everyone and their dog wants to live in, so creators Ricky Anolik and Angela Pacheco are taking charge as a clean-up brigade by introducing the Poopons app.

No more dodging dung piles in Central Park with this ingenious innovation that grants discounts to those that scoop poop. The idea is that the Poopons branded bags will be available around popular New York parks with a unique heat-sensitive coupon code that will be enabled by the collection of your pooches warm waste.

The code can then be scanned through the Poopons app on your smartphone and you will be instantly rewarded with "poop points" that will be honored by local establishments applauding your eco-friendly efforts. Scoop up this app and grab Fido for a tidy walk to cheaper goods.
