Mobile Apps From USA.gov

The federal government has been developing more and more apps and mobile websites that allow you to access useful government information on mobile devices. For instance, the Internal Revenue Service, the Small Business Administration, and the White House all have apps now. Other government apps provide access to information on a wide range of topics such as travel, consumer safety, and federal jobs. Mobile websites are also available from agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency, the State Department, and the National Institutes of Health.

All of the apps and mobile websites are free and have been developed for platforms such as iPhone, Android, and Blackberry, although not all apps are available for every platform. The USA.gov Mobile Apps page has a list of the currently available apps and mobile sites. If you have an idea for a useful app, you can send suggestions to the USA.gov staff.
