Causeworld is an app which will offer a fun experience for the user and at the same time help those in need somewhere in the world. The premise of the app is very similar to that of Gowalla or Foursquare. Users check in to their location via the app on their phone and it will award the users points based on where they have checked in.

The difference between this app and the rest is that these points awarded can then be donated and turned into money towards a cause of the user's choice. Various companies have donated funds to the Causeworld site and through the Causeworld app, users can pick the charity they would most want to help out with. It ends up being a win-win situation for everyone and you can walk away at the end of the day knowing you did something good... kind of. The app doesn't cost any money so essentially you are directing where funds will go and not actually doing any giving yourself.

In the end though, someone is helped and you have a great way to be involved. As you check in to more places, you will earn various ranks and titles which then get posted to the site's live stream online. Check it out.
