The new app called as 'Swipe to Donate Life' is not directly available to the public. Organ donation officials use it to connect people to the state's online registry. Wisconsin is the seventh state to use the tool.

People in Wisconsin who wish to be organ donors register at the Department of Motor Vehicles and get an orange dot on their license. While others sign up for the donor registry online.

But residents can complete the process in less than a minute using Swipe to Donate Life.

"The advantage with signing up online or through this way is that you get an email confirming your decision, and a certificate you can file with your important papers that you can share with your family," said Martha Mallon, who works in the organ and tissue donation program within the state's Department of Health Services.

About 60 percent of Wisconsin residents are registered organ donors said Mallon.
