There's a GAO App for That
The Government Accountability Office (GAO), formerly known as the General Accounting Office, is the independent, nonpartisan congressional agency that under the authority of the Comptroller General is charged with auditing agencies to ensure public funds are spent properly and investigating illegal or improper activity by the agencies. According to a recent press release, the agency has now released an app for the iPhone and iPad that will provide access to the GAO reports and congressional testimony along with videos and podcasts. A similar Android app is expected to be launched in a few months.
