In honor of Earth Week, there are a number of green apps available and worth checking out.
The Verde app (only for iPad) is FREE – usually $5 – from now through Sunday/Earth Day. The Verde app helps you perform an energy audit of your home. (or office or school etc). Once downloaded you choose you zone (geographically) and your energy rate (app can find it for you) and then go through various categories – adding your various appliances such as lighting, gadgets, etc. You choose which specific types in each category from lists and you can customize this data. The app will show you appx costs for your device and usage. A final report can also be emailed and used to help cut back on costs and usage!
For those wanting to get outside for the weekend, check out the FREE AllTrails app (for iphone and android) – assists with finding trails, GPS Tracking, and Topo maps for the hiking, camping, mountain biking, and National Parks. Sierra Club also has a FREE trail app called Trail Explorer (for iPhone only)
