This White House application is packed with:

  • News releases from the press room,
  • Photos of what the President is up to, and
  • Archived videos of presidential events

So what in heaven’s thinking would lead to this idea?

.

Well, here is a couple for your consideration.

  • The perceived transparency of the government would go up.
  • The buzz would be favorable and raise our perception of the leading edge Island.
  • In an increasingly  Apps-based world, our youngsters will be inspired to use their IT skills in a forward looking way rather than the commodity programming they may be involved in.
  • Imagine the wealth that could be produced from an ingenious application.
