Obama Campaign Releases iOS App To Help Get Votes

| Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

With elections drawing near in the US, candidates are doing everything they can to get more votes. Barack Obama’s latest campaign push comes in the form of an iOS app called “Obama for America” that has tools and information for volunteers, voters, and Obama campaign supporters, including nearby events, Obama’s accomplishments, and voter registration. The app is currently only for iOS, but an Android version is reportedly coming soon.

In 2008, Obama released his first iPhone app that used GPS, which was new at the time, to find local campaign offices. And Obama’s not the only one to take his campaign to smartphones: Mitt Romney also released an iPhone app in May, “With Mitt.”

So what exactly does Obama’s app provide?
