WhiteHouse.gov App Hits iPhone, Will Provide State of the Union Streaming

WhiteHouse.gov, internet home of the US Executive branch of government, has announced their new iPhone and iPod touch app, available now from the iTunes App Store [Free - iTunes link]

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. 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.

TechCrunch adds this important tip:

One thing: check the name of the app to make sure you download the official one when you search from your phone. Hint: it’s the one you don’t have to pay for.
