Former US vice president Al Gore’s book ‘Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis’ is now available as an app for Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices.
The digital version of the best-seller comes in a highly interactive avatar, complete with 250 pages and over an hour’s worth of documentary video.
The Our Choice app is based on digital publishing platform developed by Push Pop Press. The company worked with Our Choice publisher Rodale Inc. and digital media firm Melcher Media to create the app.
The app allows users to effortlessly swipe through the 19 chapters the book on climate change has to offer. Some of the images on the app fold and unfold when users pinch or spread their fingers on the screen. The images also come with a geo-tagging feature that allows users to see where they were taken.
According to USA Today (opens in new tab), the app also features documentary videos which include a 1930s footage of Dust Bowl and the London Fog.
The app is available for $5 from the iTunes store for a limited time frame. All the proceeds from the sales will be donated to the Alliance for Climate Protection.
