The Recolour The Reef app shows a 3D digital rendering of the coral networks that constitute the reef, OPPO Australia said in a statement on Wednesday.
It can be downloaded from both the Google PlayStore and Apple's AppStore.
For each download, the company says it will give $1 to the RRF.

"Last year, the Great Barrier Reef experienced its third major bleaching event in the past five years. Reef Restoration Foundation is growing and planting coals that are naturally more resilient for regenerating degraded reefs.
"We saw this partnership as an opportunity to amplify the restoration efforts of this community-based organisation that is dedicated to preserving this natural wonder that is part of our national identity."
RRF chief executive Ryan Donnelly said: "The partnership with OPPO Australia is a very exciting and important collaboration. The AR app is an education and awareness tool. People only want to protect the things they know about.
"We are trying to generate hope and there's a realistic optimism around the Great Barrier Reef if people are prepared to act."
RRF's target is to produce a million new corals on the Great Barrier Reef by 2026.
