The Android Market is no stranger to controversial apps. This time around it’s an app that attempts to convey the story of how your smartphone came into being — which may not be a pretty story.
From the Market Description:
Phone Story is an educational game about the hidden social costs of smartphone manufacturing. Follow your phone’s journey from the Coltan mines of the Congo to the electronic waste dumps in Pakistan through four colorful mini-games. Compete with market forces in an endless spiral of technological obsolescence. You can keep Phone Story in your favorite device as a reminder of your impact on this world.”
The app developer says all revenues from the sale of the app will be donated to organizations working to solve the issues mentioned in this game.
