The White House: Now on Android

Apparently somebody got the hint when President Obama recently complained about the lack of “really cool phones and stuff” at the White House. If they can’t get really cool phones in the White House, at least they were able to bring the White House to really cool phones.

Joining the previously released iOS app, the White House has released an Android app that allows political junkies to get alerts, watch the President speak live, view photos and videos, and read up on news.

Now, with the White House’s app joining Sunlight Labs’ unofficial-but-awesome Congress app, we’ve got the legislative and executive branches of the U.S. government covered. The Supreme Court has got to be feeling the pressure, no?

    Terrific! Now the White House can get it lies and half truths out even faster!

  • A word of caution. There seem to be a bunch of copy cat programs using the same icon and very similar names.

    Hmm, coming from The White House and it’s free! I cry foul!
