iphone to plant trees

Got an iPhone? You can use that mobile device to increase the overall population of "real" trees on our planet.

Raven Zachary, who developed the official iPhone app for the Obama campaign, has launched a new eco-friendly app called iPhorest that you can use to plant trees both virtually and physically.

iPhone App for a Noble Cause

Here’s how the whole thing works – you download the iPhorest app on your iPhone (or iPod touch), plant a virtual tree on your phone and for this action, The Conservation Fund will plant a real tree somewhere in the real world.

As the seedling on your phone grows, you can pass on the seeds to other phones and thus help accelerate the forestation effort.

The iPhorest app will be available on the Apple iTunes stores in few weeks but you can sign up here to be notified of the release. [Picture: Flickr]
