Plant "A Real Tree" with your iPhone/iPod Touch

Greenpeace activists would have love and bought this crap app in an instant; A Real Tree app for iPhone/iPod Touch made by Mokugift.

Mokugift's Hans Chung briefly told iPhone Savior about this app: "There are more than 13 million iPhone users, if every iPhone owner planted one tree, the environmental impact would be equivalent to taking 500,000 cars off the road."

The app works very simple; when the app is launched there will be an animated tree grows out of the ground into full bloom, tap once and watch a little bird circle around and land. Chung promised that more small 'Easter egg' surprises would be added with future updates.

Mokugift promise if a user buy this app, then A Real Tree trees will be planted in 12 countries fighting deforestation: Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Burundi, Senegal, Zambia, India, Philippines, and Haiti. Those countries are in tropical regions where tree planting is the most beneficial to the fight against global warming.

You can even visit its website to see where the trees will be planted, and how many trees have been planted so far. A Real Tree app is sold at $0.99 per license, and Chung has his own personal note for that: "People spent $8,000 dollars on that frivolous "I Am Rich" app, that inspired us, we knew that we needed to develop something meaningful."
