The GreenPocket app is a new app from the German company of the same name that turns cutting energy use into a competition. The app is designed to keep you informed of your energy consumption and lets you broadcast your green living to your friends via Facebook.
The idea behind the GreenPocket app is that your Facebook friends will see how well you are doing (and how much money you're saving) and want to beat you. Friends can stat track each other in weekly energy use contests to see who is doing the best at turning the lights off and cutting power consumption during peak hours. Competition brings out the best in people, and if used in the right way it could make the world a lot greener.
