Apps help celebrate World Peace Day

Today and every September 21st is International Day of Peace aka World Peace Day. You do not have to be a genius to know that the day is dedicated to try and bring harmony to the world, which as we know is full of conflict. We know that it is a big ask, but surly there will come a time when there will be no wars? As a way to help celebrate this day we thought we would take a look at a few apps to help bring calm on this very special day.

The Promise of World Peace is the first app, but you will need to be dedicated to the cause, as it will cost you $3.99. What we like about this app is how it helps you understand some of the issues that have brought conflict to certain regions of the world, along with what can be done to solve them. It all sounds good in theory, but it is the practicality of it that has always been the issue.

Next up we have WorldPeace, this will cost just $0.99. What we like about this one is how you can see where you country ranks in terms of its peacefulness, there are 149 countries included. The app does have its fun aspects, as you might get a shock at just who is the most peaceful and aggressive country. There are also a few other added features, such as learning the population of each country, along with information brought to you via Wikipedia.

Our final app for you is the most important one – well so we believe. Islam, World Peace and September 11th by Jamal Badawi costs just $0.99 and gives you a deeper insight into Islam. Now we are not religious and do not try to push anything on our readers, but many people believe that all Muslims are bad, and this is just not the case. Having recently been to Egypt, I got to know a different side to the people to what we have seen in the news. This app will help you understand the true meaning of Islam, or so the app suggests anyway.

There are just three apps that you can enjoy on World Peace Day, but let’s not kid ourselves here – there will never be a world where there is no conflict.
