The iPhone is a game-changer. People can use it to access applications that were previously available only on their computers. It gives them access to those same apps while they’re on the go, in the field, and even when they're not working.
Ithaca, NY (PRWEB) May 21, 2010
Singlebrook Technology Inc. announced today it is accepting proposals to create a free, custom iPhone application for a deserving not-for-profit, social or sustainable mission-driven organization, or certified B-Corporation.

The iPhone app must enhance or increase the organization or Corporation’s sustainable efforts.
Certified not-for-profit, social or sustainable mission-driven organizations, and B-Corporations are encouraged to submit proposals. Examples of custom applications include, but are not limited to, carbon footprint calculators, a collection of interesting and useful health tips, or questions and answers about protecting the water or air. Proposals should demonstrate how the custom iPhone application will enhance or increase the organization’s sustainable efforts, and do not need to be limited to the examples above.

The Singlebrook Sustainable iPhone App Program announcement follows Singlebrook’s recent certification as a B-Corporation. According to Singlebrook CEO Elisa Miller-Out, it’s also part of the company’s growth as a web and mobile technology development firm. “The iPhone is a game-changer that’s in a class by itself. People can use it to access applications that were previously available only on their computers. It gives them access to those same apps while they’re on the go, in the field, and even when they aren’t working. As a certified B-Corporation whose mission now incorporates a commitment to a sustainable environment, donating our time to create a custom iPhone app for another social or sustainable mission-driven organization allows us to use technology as a force for positive change.”
