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.

    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.
