Al Gore’s Our Choice will change the way we read books. And quite possibly change the world. In this interactive app, Al Gore surveys the causes of global warming and presents groundbreaking insights and solutions already under study and underway that can help stop the unfolding disaster of global warming.

Our Choice melds the vice president’s narrative with photography, interactive graphics, animations, and more than an hour of engrossing documentary footage. A new, groundbreaking interface allows you to experience that content seamlessly. Pick up and explore anything you see in the book; zoom out to the visual table of contents and quickly browse though the chapters; reach in and explore data-rich interactive graphics.

100% of Al Gore’s earnings from Our Choice will be donated to the nonprofit Alliance for Climate Protection.

Great Packaging, Incomplete Message (by Chad Wisler)
The interactivity and graphical presentation is fantastic.

Unfortunately, many of the graphics are a misrepresentation of ‘global warming / climate change’.
For example, the cooling tower assemble are presented as a produced of CO2, off-gassing, but in reality the plumes presented as condensate vapor.

Additionally, a photograph of President Bush and the King of Saudi under the premise of ‘political’ views is misleading and takes away from the over-arching issues of climate change and turn the presentation materials into a political issue, thus reducing its overall effectiveness in education and awareness. A photograph of President Obama and the King of Saudi Arabia (or preferably both photos) could just as easily been presented.

Lastly, to gain perspective, a balance of the advantages of each CO2 mitigation measure / alternative energy approach should be have been presented identification the ‘issues’ with each approach. By identifying the real-world issues with each alternative, greater validity, education, and awareness would be achieved by the readers.

WARNING: App is incomplete: requires WiFi to complete (by lisowskiw)
I purchased the app on my Mac, sync’ed it to my iPad, checked out a few pages, left the app, went into Airplane Mode to save battery life. When I returned to the app, only the first chapters were available – it nagged me to turn on WiFi to download the rest. Unfortunately, at that point I was away from WiFi.

Nowhere in the App Store description, nowhere in the app instructions at the start of the app, nowhere on the developer’s web site. App is 58meg to start with, that’s why I bought it on my Mac.

Poor form from the developer.

MAKE LISTS OF ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING
————————-
Paperless is a simple but powerful app for making lists. Use it to create to do lists, make grocery lists, take notes, write an outline of a story, prepare notes for a presentation, make a list of gift ideas, plan a vacation… or anything else you’d want to make a list for.


BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED
————————-
Assign a fun sticker icon to each of your lists, there are over 300 to choose from. All icons are beautifully rendered in high resolution on the iPhone 4′s amazing retina display. In addition, there are 5 overall app design themes to choose from.


SIMPLE AND VERSATILE
————————-
Paperless was built with the user in mind and has a clean, elegant and quick to use interface. Also, each list can either be a checklist or a regular list without checkboxes, making a wide variety of uses possible.


REALLY HELPS YOU GET THINGS DONE
————————-
For checklists and todo lists, many people prefer using Paperless over traditional “getting things done” apps – or, they use it in addition to one. With Paperless, there are no due dates or priority settings, so you’re left to focus on the actual tasks at hand, rather than waste time changing those settings when your priorities change. Instead, if a particular task becomes important, you can simply move it to the top of the list.

Best List app in the app store (by Bryson Holland)
The only list app I’ve come across that lets me duplicate lists. I can create a template list for all the common things I always buy at the store, and duplicate it every week when I go grocery shopping so I only have to add one or two new things to the list instead of retyping it every time.

Awesome UI, awesome workflow, very intuitive. Not bloated full of useless cruft features. The power of this app really is in its simplicity, its straightforward functionality. Best list-making app there is. Worth the price twice.

Updated review for 1.4: still awesome, still the best, and added some killer new features. Read-only settings, link detection, more icons, completed-on dares for checklist items…please sir may I have another.
     
Thanks! (by HLKCO)
What a wonderful update! I love the new adding feature. It makes adding items so much faster. Jim Rhoades is great! I contacted him a couple weeks ago. He was very quick to reply. I actually got a very first glimpse at the new adding feature. Now it’s here! I appreciate all the work you have done.
