VeganXpress-Menu & Shopping Assistance, $1.99

When you’re a vegetarian or a vegan, finding a place to eat in a city can be challenging, especially when most restaurants’ specialties include meat. With the VeganXpress app, you can find vegan eats at national restaurant chains and fast-food restaurants. This app is perfect for the always-busy vegan.

BNB (Be Nice to Bunnies), $2.99

Animal testing is rampant. This practice is inhumane because animals were never meant to try shampoos, cosmetics, and other products formulated for humans. So, the next time you go shopping, make sure that shampoo you’re buying has not been tested on animals. With help from a database from PETA, the BNB app can tell you which companies participate in animal testing.

Animal Kill Counter, Free

Hardcore vegans fight for animal rights, too. A good way for vegans to not lose sight of what they are fighting for is to be aware of how many animals are killed worldwide each second. The Animal Kill Counter app does just that; using a constantly updating timer, it tallies up the number of animals being slaughtered for food worldwide. This app can be a good conversation starter and a definite eye-opener to many.

Browse these apps and more at the iTunes App store, and while you’re at it, drop by macmall.com for some great deals on Apple products you can’t resist.
