Virtual items are all the rage in social games online – think about the millions of tractors being bought every day on Farmville. However, they’re starting to venture onto iPhone too, with WWF Panda Collection Tin being an example designed with charitable intent.
The name explains it all: this app has a 3D collection tin shaped like a panda, which you can spin around, zoom in and out of, and save as your wallpaper. There is also more information on the WWF’s current wildlife and global warming campaigns. Not intrinsically useful, but a clever way of making donating a bit more fun.
