Grist’s guide to green iPhone apps
GreenSpot: Follow the latest environmental headlines from sources like the New York Times, the Associated Press, and Yahoo! News with this app’s topic-specific feeds. If you like its taste in news, the app also hosts a podcast. $1.99 3 stars iTunes
The Green Brief: This app is essentially a collection of green RSS feeds plus a green living tips generator. The news stream consists of headlines with summaries, but they don’t reliably include links to the full-stories. $2.99 no rating iTunes
iNewz Green: Follow topic-specific feeds that draw from multiple sources like TheDailyGreen, Planet Green, and Popular Science. Share articles with the integrated email, Twitter, and Del.icio.us features, and read articles in offline mode. $0.99 no rating iTunes
Mission Zero: This AppCraver-recommended app aggregates climate and energy news from all over the web into topic-specific feeds for your iPhone. Sites like TheDailyGreen contribute to food news and TNR’s The Vine to politics, but beware of sources like jpmorganclimatecare.com — not exactly known for its muckraking climate news. Free 2.5 stars iTunes
If you can only download one: Get the GreenSpot. Reviewers like the news sources and podcast.
