Amongst the Angry Birds and Candy Crushes of the App world, there are some really useful and even potentially lifesaving apps — and one of them is OrganJet.

OrganJet isn’t a conventional app, you can’t download it on your phone, but it is a web app that helps you find an affordable and fast transplant option from anywhere in the world.

OrganJet’s brand new online toolset allows customers to see a list of nearby kidney transplant centres and even sort them by wait time.

According to the company running the service, OrganJet Corporation, around 500 to 2,500 kidneys are wasted per year and more than 5,000 patients die whilst waiting for one.

The service is currently available in the US, with users having to input a Zip Code to find a transplant centre near them.
