The WWF Together app is by the World Wildlife Fund that won the 2013 Apple Design Award Winner and 2013 App of the Year Runner Up. This education app has stunning graphics and even better, mind blowing stats that are easy for kids to remember.
This app combines hypnotic videos, statistics and fun features about endangered species. You get to experience the lives of elephants, whales, rhinos, pandas, and more through interactive pages of information and engaging activities such as ‘tiger vision’, staying still like a polar bear during a hunt, and chopping a panda’s bamboo.
Each animal page is divided into nine parts and has information such as history, random facts such as do you know what a panda and a stick of butter have in common?, photos, threats to their existence, the various interventions undertaken by WWF, and more. This app will not give you information in boring lists or blocks of paragraphs but instead makes the learning more interactive, for example, on the tiger’s page, the primary focus are the stripes, you must swipe the photo for the background to change and reveal hidden text.
Each animal has a photo gallery with breathtaking photos taken by environmental photographer Morten Koldby. You can share the videos and photos with friends on Facebook, email, and other social media sites. There is the option of making the origami type video to share with friends and family.
The app teaches users on ways to get involved in the protection of the species.
