EcoDice App Review

When you're serious about going green, taking steps to decrease your eco footprint can begin to feel like a chore. Personally, I find myself getting stressed from time to time when I'm faced with buying something that I want to ensure is eco-friendly. I also get overwhelmed sometimes, feeling as if being green is too large an undertaking. It seems like for every change I make for the positive, I uncover a dozen more changes that need to be made.

Recently, I found an enjoyable app that puts a little fun into leading a greener life, so I wanted to share it with all of you. The name of the app is EcoDice, and it's a novel way to get some green inspiration.

The Basics

- Available for iPhone 3GS models and later, iPod touch 3rd generation models or later and iPads. Requires iOS 4.3 or later.

- Sold for $.99 on the Apple App Store

- Only available in English

- Created by Richard Van tol of Creative Heroes

 The Features

- When you turn on EcoDice, you'll see an animated image of a die being thrown. Instead of dots, the die is adorned with images of stick figures engaged in various activities.

- Once the animation ends, an icon will appear on your screen along with a tip on how you can go green. Examples include "Walk or Ride a Bike to Work or School" and "Shower Together Today." 

- After a few seconds, the die rolls again and a new tip appears until you turn off the program.

The Takeaway

This app has some very good suggestions for ways to green your life, and all of them are easy to execute. I find myself playing with the app when I'm waiting for appointments, and I'm sure this would be a fun program for kids.

The only downside I see to the app is that the images tend to repeat frequently, so you may see the same idea a few times if you play for more than a few minutes.

Still, for $.99 the beautiful graphics and smart tips make this app a winner.
