So you’re not into the iPhone. You’re not alone. While I still consider it to be my dream phone, I do realize that it is not the only phone out there. In fact, Google’s Nexus One seems like it’s going to give Apple a run for its money. For those of you who prefer Android phones, here are some apps which you should know about. They are not only cool and fun, they also whet your appetite for all things green!
3rd Whale Mobile. Alright, that sounds like the popular iPhone app, doesn’t it? Yup, you’re right. It is a hit app for that phone, but the people behind 3rd Whale Mobile have decided to go Android as well. This app gives you info on green businesses in North America plus tons of tips and other info on going green.
EpiCollect. I like the whole idea behind this app: you allow ecologists to access some data from your phone that will help them in their studies. It’s a prime example of what is now known as “crowdsourcing.” I think it’s a great way to do your part while enjoying technology.
GreenYou. Calculate your own carbon footprint with this app. More than that, you can also use it to create your customized plan to lessen your carbon footprint. Now you have no excuse!
iGreenCircle. This one is still a “baby” in that it hasn’t taken off yet. Think about it as something like Facebook, but for green-minded people. I’d join it as early as now and see how it goes.
