Though I keep it out of my work personality, I'm very much into politics and business. Having worked with campaigns in the past, my iPhone has one "page" dedicated to news, business, and politics - be it CNN, ABC News, MSNBC, Bloomberg, Yahoo! Finance, CNBC, NPR, or WSJ, I'm always connected. The one thing I was missing? An easy link to news from the White House.
The White House app, released earlier in the week, offers news, press briefings, photos, streaming video (over 3G!), archived footage, and live content. The iPhone app is said to be part of a bigger strategy to bring the executive branch into the 21st century. In the coming weeks, a mobile version of their website will be available at mobile.whitehouse.gov, and rumors are pointing to additional platform support (Android, webOS, etc.) in the near future.
The application is free, and can be found in the App Store. Look for next week's State of the Union address to be broadcasted live over the application.
