    White House launches first iPhone app

    "Today, we’re excited to announce the new White House App available for Apple iPhone and iPod Touch [sic]," Dave Cole blogs for WhiteHouse.gov.. "The White House App delivers dynamic content from WhiteHouse.gov to the palm of your hand."

    "One feature that stands out is live video streaming," Cole writes. "Now anyone with this app can watch the President’s public events at the White House, frequent web chats with Administration officials, and other events like key speeches and press briefings in real time."

    "In fact, the President’s State of the Union speech next week is a great example," Cole writes. "In addition to the millions of Americans watching through TV and websites like WhiteHouse.gov/live, iPhone users on the go will be able to tune in through their phones."

    "The White House App also lets users stay up to date with the White House Blog and the latest from the Briefing Room," Cole writes. "Browse behind-the-scenes photos and watch on-demand videos. The app provides instant access to full videos from recent speeches, press briefings, and special events."

    The White House App is available as a free download from Apple's iTunes App Store here:

    Does it include a map of the White House next time there is a state dinner I want to crash?

    I thought of putting it there, but since it's the White House I thought it interesting enough to stick it here instead. Though if the mods feel like it they can by all means move it.

    Keep playing up the White House angle and you'll end up in PRSI. :D
