CREDO Mobile launches activists’ blog – USA

CREDO Mobile has launched an online blog for all mobile Internet users at www.mobileapptitude.com. The site aims to engage users to utilise the features of their mobile phone to be more active within their community and society for the greater good.

Laura Scher, Chief Executive Officer for CREDO Mobile said: "Before mobileapptitude.com, there wasn't a central place for people to learn how to use their phones to be more socially active … We offer honest, timely information, all at one site. We're excited to engage not only our own members but all progressives who use their mobile phones to make positive change."

CREDO Mobile is an MVNO from Working Assets, a company formed in 1985 to work for the good of society. Their site quotes them as: A small band of idealists [working] together to further the causes of human rights, women's rights, peace, environmentalism and an entire progressive agenda. [We] have an idea about helping people spend in a socially responsible way, turning everyday purchases into automatic acts of generosity.
