The internet is a truly unbelievable thing, especially when it comes to how much it has changed our world. We as a species are much closer to each other than we’ve ever been before, which means we can make some pretty effective changes around the world from the comfort of our computer or smartphone.
one7days is an awesome idea, it allows Android users to make micro-donations to charities whenever they see fit. The app relies on the power of numbers, which means you won’t go broke and that pretty much everyone is able to contribute.
Concept and Functionality
The idea behind one7days, a free app by Green Honey Developers, is a very simple one; donate one dollar per week to a charity and make a positive impact on the world.
The app takes the guesswork out of selecting which charity you can donate to by selecting one charity to feature per week.
One of the things I really like about one7days is the fact that the interface is very easy to navigate and the app itself is straightforward. You can easily swipe around the screen to navigate different charities, as well as view past charities that have been featured by the app.
In order to commit one dollar to a charity, you need to create an account with one7days by either registering with your email address or connecting the app to Facebook. Once you’ve confirmed your account, you can choose to pay via credit/debit or use your Google Play account.
You can also choose to pay $52 upfront, which covers the entire year. Payments are handled very securely via Stripe, so users can feel confident that their money and information is safe.
Along with secure payments and simple navigation, one7days allows users to share charities via Google+, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram. I was a little surprised, though, that when using a Nexus 7 the only sharing option was Google+. I hope that the developers expand the sharing options on that device.
one7days also features a page that lists all charities featured in the app, as well as a link to the charity’s website so users can do independent research and make sure they’re comfortable with where their money is going.
Lastly, you can opt to receive notifications from one7days when a new charity is featured each week. From what I can tell, the app doesn’t spam notifications at all.
one7days is available to download from Google Play for free and there are no subscription fees or in-app purchases. The most you will ever spend is $52 per year if you decide to either donate a full year upfront or week by week throughout the year.
Overall, one7days is a fantastic app that serves a wonderful purpose. I really like the fact that it caps user donations and that the amount is small enough where everyone can contribute on an equal basis.
Don’t hesitate to turn your iPhone friends onto this app either since it’s also available from the Apple App Store.
I highly recommend checking the app out if you’re interested in supporting charities on a regular basis.
one7days requires Android 4.0+. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
