Announcing ONE’s brand new iPhone app

I’m excited to share some breaking news directly with you loyal ONE blog readers – before the rest of the world hears about it. After months of development, ONE’s brand new app for the iPhone is available and free to the public. So don’t be shy–click here to see for yourself.

With this app – which we developed with our friends at @radical.media – it’s now easier than ever to sign and share our petitions to world leaders, call your member of Congress, find and attend a local field training, and check out our latest Living Proof video. You can also easily connect with your social network and recruit new people in the fight against extreme poverty.

Whew! With all that firepower it doesn’t feel like an exaggeration to call this the ONE app that could change the world. And that’s why I’m so excited to share it with you before we launch it to our over 2.5 million members.

Reena Dhake, ONE’s Congressional District Leader in Minneapolis, had this to say about the new app, ” I can recruit my friends wherever I go – at a coffee shop, a restaurant or even a concert. Today’s ONE members aren’t sitting at their computers waiting for change to happen. We are active and on-the-go, so a mobile app will make us an even more powerful force.”

Our cofounder Bono, getting ready for the opening of Spiderman and on the road with U2, took time out to have a look … “This app is a gateway to a world that¹s committed to changing the one we live in. If you want to jump into the fight against extreme poverty, you can find things to do which take less than a minute, or, that take over your life…it’s 21st century activism in the palm of your hand,” he said.

Advocacy is not a solitary affair, it’s an increasingly mobile pursuit. So now we’re bringing the power of our collective voices directly to you wherever you are. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments below.
