+Green School Revolution: The Game
Let’s face it -- events are hella more fun when they’re gamified.

Oh and for all you FarmVille fans: You can harvest (digital) carrots.
+Taptu Guardian Environment
What if you had the most popular green news all in one app? The free Taptu Guardian Environment delivers precisely that and more (Beautiful photo galleries, anyone?). Score!

Green Genie (99 cents) gives ideas for more than 100 projects and easy tasks you can do to lead a greener life. It also has a glossary of green terms to help you step up your eco-game, links to carbon footprint calculators, a list of green certified products, etc. There's even an option to submit your own environmental project ideas. Everyone can participate and be a green leader (and we're not talking 'bout the Hulk. Har har har)!
+Light Bulb Finder
The Light Bulb Finder helps people switch from incandescent light bulbs to more environmentally friendly and less expensive bulbs (cuz no one wants to be a slave to the dolla dolla bill y’all).
