ONE App: Use It And Change The World

Changing the world has never become easier for iPhone users as a new app has been launched that will allow the users to instigate change. Most of us do not get enough time to get political even though some of us are passionate about it. But the new app is here to solve this problem.

the iPhone app, ONE attempts to make it easier for you to get informed on various issues, and take political action on the issues you care about. The app works like this: it uses your zip code to find out which local policy makers could influence decisions on an issue such as, extreme poverty and preventable diseases and then lets you call the senator. It also attempts to modernize political call to action by inviting you to sign a petition or join up with a real life rally for various causes in order to raise awareness.

ONE is a national campaign backed by singer Bono that mobilizes over 2 million people to raise public awareness on issues like education, development assistance and maternal and child health through advocacy. Their slogan is “We’re not asking for your money, just your voice.” The app was created in a partnership with, and it offers a way to track how ONE is affecting change.

If you have an iPhone, use the new app. If you want to see change in the world, you better start working on it and be a part of the campaign.
