An F1 App to Help Japan

By Mav | 12 May 2011 | 4 Comments | 1,470 views

Kamui Kobayashi has organised a new electronic Formula One book featuring contributions from all the drivers and team principals in order to help support victims of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The “You Are Connected” app can be purchased via iTunes for €0.79, with all proceeds going to the Japanese Red Cross Society.

The book features photos of all the drivers and team principals accompanied by handwritten messages for those affected by the disaster. There is also a selection of action shots of all the Formula One cars, some of the images can be used as wallpaper. The e-book has also been designed to allow constant expansion with updated versions.

“Although the disaster attracted huge international attention in the immediate aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami, other news has dominated the headlines since then,” says Kobayashi. “However, the destruction in the country is so serious that it will take many years to recover from the losses and damage. So the people in Japan need long-term support. I’d like to thank all my colleagues in Formula One for their contributions and hope that our e-book sells as well as possible.”

    Lovely app, lovely idea. Well done Kamui and everyone else involved.

    Simple but well executed, hopefully many people will buy it so that the small price becomes a big help.
    I particularly like the translations.

    Alianora La Canta,

    If you already use iTunes to download music, I think you can buy the app from the store even if you don’t have an appropriate device
