WWF Together is an app by the World Wildlife Fund that teaches you about the world's most amazing animals including elephants, whales, rhinos, and more. WWF Together lets you experience the animals' lives with interactive pages of information and fun activities like trying out "tiger vision", staying still like a polar bear during a hunt, and chopping a panda's bamboo.
Each animal page is a like a huge poster that is divided into nine parts. Each part includes information about the animal including history, videos, random facts, gorgeous photographs, threats to their existence, how the WWF has helped them, and more. Instead of giving information as a boring list or in paragraph form, WWF Together makes learning interactive my requiring your involvement to learn. For example, when on the tiger's page that focuses on its stripes, you must swipe the photo in order for the background to change and reveal hidden text.
Every animal has a page dedicated to photographs. The photos are gorgeous and are the work of renowned environmental photographer Morten Koldby. They can be viewed full screen and look amazing on the Retina iPad's display.
The animals featured in WWF Together include great pandas, marine turtles, elephants, tigers, bison, polar bears, whales, snow leopards, rhinos, gorillas, sharks, and jaguars. The jaguar is technically not yet available, but it will be released in May 2013 and there's an option to be notified when it's available.
WWF Together is a great app to learn about wildlife and is beautifully made. If you have any interest in learning about animals or have kids who do, definitely pick this one up.
