We all know the iPhone 6 is just around the corner, and we all know trading up is an option worth considering.
And what do you know? Much like last year, we’ve teamed up with Newaya Recycling to get you all a sweet little deal for an additional 10% in trade value when you recycle your old iPhone. Because come on, you know you want the newest one. We all do.
To get a quote for your iPhone’s trade-in value:
1) head to Newaya
2) Click “Get My Quote”
3) Select the appropriate device
4) Select the condition of the phone
5) Click the big green button, “Get My Instant Quote”
Once you’ve got your quote, look towards the bottom of the box for the promo code field. Type in “148Apps” and viola – an instant 10% boost to your price quote.
Once you’ve finalized everything you just have to enter your shipping info and they’ll send you your own shipping label, which means no paying out of your own pocket. All you have to do is box up your to-be-recycled iPhone, slap the shipping label on there, and send it on its merry way.
Currently free for a limited time only is Eco Mania, an arcade style sorting game that hopes to add excitement to recycling.
Now I’ll admit to being no great fan of sorting out my recycling and splitting everything up into the relevant containers, however Eco Mania does add a bit of fun to the concept. Players do exactly what they do with their recycling: divide things up according to type. The difference here is that in Eco Mania speeds things up courtesy of the conveyor belt.
The game gets increasingly challenging as time goes on with the developers’ hope that this will make people think twice about simply throwing things into the garbage instead of recycling everything.
There’s a Launch Trailer out now which offers a similarly strong recycling message by giving personality to each recycling bin. Gameplay is simple yet addictive with a classic and time trial style mode in the form of frenzy available.
Eco Mania is out now and it’s free for a limited time only.
