a re-purposed device

is a happy device

Our Mission

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the average life span of a cell phone is only 18 months. Here at AppAppliance we see that as a tragedy not just due to the environmental impact of all those cell phones being manufactured and discarded, but because the computing power of an average cell phone would have cost millions of dollars just a few decades ago.

We've been working hard since 2012 to develop and discover Apps to provide a new purpose for all those powerful little devices. We call them Appliance Apps, little tools that are intended to run on permanently located devices rather than the phones or tablets you carry with you every day.

Our goal is to extend the service life of cell phones, not only to keep them out of the land fill, but to prevent the manufacture of other devices that could easily be replicated using a cell phone or Tablet. Why buy a new egg timer, baby monitor, or security camera when an old cell phone can do the same job?

If you've read the above and still want to get rid of your phone or tablet, we can direct you to sites that help you unload your old device with minimal impact to the planet ... and we thank you for caring!

Did you Know?

According to Gartner, worldwide sales of cellphones exceeded one billion in 2012. Thats a lot of lead, arsenic, antimony, beryllium, nickel, cadmium, copper, and zinc going into our environment!

Electronic devices are one of the most difficult devices to recycle, due to the many types of plastics used in each device, and due to the foams, screws, coatings, paints, and labels embedded in the plastic.
