Wild Calls App Uses Endangered Species Sounds As iPhone Ringtones

Is that a wolf I hear howling in your pocket? If you own an iPhone and recently downloaded the Center for Biological Diversity’s new Wild Calls app, than it probably is. The non-profit dedicated to the protection of endangered species unveiled this new app today as a way to help make others aware of other creatures on our shared planet.

The Wild Calls app each week allows iPhone owners to randomly have pushed to them one of 30 endangered species sounds from the Center’s free ringtones library. The Center says users can the download the sound as a ringtone or browse other ones from the gallery to download, along with matching wallpapers.

Other features of this iPhone app include allowing users to make their cell-phone alarm clock play an endangered species sound as their wake-up call and interacting with the Center around action issues such as petitions and letters. Wild Calls was developed by a team including Tom Wallace, creative director of Mobile Culture Lab – a division of Label Networks – and Bradley Feldman, owner of Bradley Mobile Media, LLC.
