With Earth Day on Friday, April 22, Apple has recently unveiled a new “Apps for Earth” promotion. From now until Sunday, April 24, proceeds (including in-app purchases) from 27 popular apps will be given to support the great work done by the World Wildlife Fund.
Here are seven of our favorite apps working with Apple and the WWF.
One of the top photo editing apps for iOS devices, Enlight now features a number of new Earth-inspired presets to the Analog, Duo, and Adjust features. There are also new decals and a nature-themed tutorial to enjoy.
Originally landing a little more than a year ago, the great app offers a number of powerful editing features like universal masking, photo merging, and more.
It’s $3.99 and designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and all iPad models.
Your children will definitely enjoy The Earth by Tinybop. The app, designed for kids 6 to 8, helps teach how environmental changes, the weather, and even mysteries have affected the planet over time. There is even a great informational handbook that delves deeper into what the app teaches. For a limited time, snag the Love The Earth package to support the WWF. In the add-on pack, kids will be able to help protect oceans and forests, discover benefits of conservation and clean energy, and test renewable energy to power things like cars and boats.
During the special promotion, the usually $2.99 app is free. Love The Earth is an in-app purchase of $0.99. The app is designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and all iPad models.
This powerful drawing app is now featuring specially commissioned Apps for Earth artwork. Just like its sibling for the iPad line, Procreate Pocket is a great way to sketch and create. An update back in late 2015 brought 3D Touch support for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Along with bringing up Quick Actions by pressing the app’s icon, users of those handsets can create pressure-sensitive brush strokes with just their fingers.
You can download it now for $2.99. The app is made for the iPhone/iPod touch.
Another great photo app, VSCO is featuring a limited-time WWF preset that enhances natural settings and is great for landscapes and wildlife. The app itself is a great way to shoot and edit images. It also includes a number of great social features. You can explore content from people you follow, specially select work from the community, and more.
VSCO is designed for both the iPhone/iPod touch and all iPad models. It’s free to download. The WWF preset is available with a $0.99 in-app purchase.
A perfect companion for your morning jog, walk, or bike ride, MapMyRun+ users can participate in a fun, limited-time challenge by logging distances tied to some of Earth’s most famous landmarks like the Nile River or Grand Canyon.
It’s designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and can be downloaded now for $2.99. The Run Nature challenge is free.
WWF’s signature app is also a great place to head to learn more about what the organization is doing to protect the planet and its animals. The Planet Earth Story can be unlocked with a $1.99 in-app purchase. Along with 16 stories of animals, you’ll be able to view a 360-degree panoramic view of Earth from space, play with digital water, and take and share a photo with an origami planet.
The app is free and designed for both the iPhone/iPod touch and all iPad models.
Even this fun trivia game is getting in on the action. You can purchase a number of different card decks designed around WWF’s efforts on climate, food, oceans, fresh water, and more.
The app is available on the iPhone/iPod touch, all iPad models, and even the Apple Watch for free. The WWF cards range in price from $2.99 to $19.99.
