Ratings and Reviews
ReliefWeb Crises lets you browse through a selection of humanitarian crises from the extensive ReliefWeb site. It provides a quick way to get an overview of major crises, but it also has surprising depth to it - tapping on numbers reveal history and their source, and from there you can go further to explore related content. The ability to customize visible crises and reports is a nice touch too. The app looks great and feels smooth and speedy. Pretty great for what it does.
