‘One Today’ charity app by Google released to public, invite no longer necessary


Three months ago, Google released a charity application to the Play Store which allowed users to give away a dollar a day (or more) to a different cause each day. However, the initial release was only open to those who applied and received an invitation to use it. Starting today, invitations are no longer necessary, but users still do have to be from the United States.

The application offers the feature of making your donations public, sharing them on your G+ page, and prompting others to give money as well. All of the user’s donations, minus a 1.9% transaction fee, go straight to the cause. We’ll see if they expand the app to be international in the future, but nothing is expected at this point. Check out the link to the app in the Play Store after the break.
