Apple is making it easy to help WWF

Buying these apps will help save the planet

You're a conscientious guy, right? You recycle your milk cartons (almond, obviously), your burgers only use locally sourced ingredients and you never leave your computer on overnight.

Apple likes your vibes. For the next ten days, they're partnering with the World Wildlife Fund, donating all the proceeds made from 27 apps to the charity in an initiative they're calling 'Apps for Earth'. 

You can find out more about Apple's efforts on planetary conservation here (spoiler: making smartphones will never be 'good' for the planet), and have a browse of the best planet-saving apps below.

An all-in-one photo editor. Turn your selfie into something worthy of an album cover, or just crop it. Up to you.

Peak - Brain Training

Enhance your brain power with games! Games! Brilliant, eh? No, they're nowhere near as fun as Angry Birds, but at least you can remember where you left your car keys after you've played them long enough.

Yoga Studio

If it's good enough for Ryan Giggs, it's good enough for us. Not that we'd do it in public - don't be silly. Everyone knows the best way to practice yoga is via an app, locked in your bedroom, where no one can see you fall over.
