Today is a big day. On this first day of Movember (the month formerly known as November) millions of men around the world will shave their faces and begin to grow a moustache. They grow their Mo’s to change the face of men’s health and bring awareness to prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health issues like depression. Through the independent global charity, Movember, these Mo Bros (and supportive Mo Sistas) raise funds for research and support programs for men’s health.

That’s where Instead (typeset as “instead”) comes in.

A noble cause, sure, but is the app actually usable?

Quick Look posts are paid submissions offering only a brief overview of an app. Vote in the polls below if you think this app is worth an in-depth AppStorm review!

In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting PocketPhilanthropist. The developer describes PocketPhilanthropist as featuring a new non-profit organization/charity each week. The app partners with various charities and creates an attainable, tangible Project, which is then featured in the weekly featured story.

Users can quickly read about the weekly featured charity and their cause, and if motivated can quickly donate as little as $1 with the touch of a finger using the app’s “Donate” button.
