Obama campaign launches Apple iPhone, iPod touch application

“Barack Obama’s campaign recently launched a new Apple iPhone [and iPod touch] application,” Ed Hornick reports for CNN.

“Over the weekend, the campaign launched a volunteer-developed application that iPhoners can download. “Obama ’08″, which is free through the Apple.com iTunes store, features several options aimed at supporters and undecided voters,” Hornick reports.

• The “Call Friends” tab allows users to use their electronic phonebook to call contacts
• The “Get Involved” option gives iPhoners the phone numbers to [various] Obama campaign headquarters
• “News” features statements put out by the Obama campaign

Hornick reports, “Naturally, like any good campaign tool, the Obama iPhone application comes complete with a fundraising pitch.”

  1. Before this conversation goes completely off the rails…
    Our nonprofit would like to do something similar. Can anyone suggest a resource for connecting with good developer?

    TIA

  2. What a waste.

    If anything, Barack Obama should launch a Supreme Court application and urge Sarah Palin to buy an iPhone or iPod touch and download it. Then maybe she’ll actually learn about some of the landmark cases that interpret the law of the land before, God forbid, she possibly gets in a position to appoint justices.

  3. This thread is a waste of space. Ron Paul is right about the economy and right about the two presidential candidates. They are empty suits filled with empty promises. In my humble opinion those who vote for either of the two village idiots deserve exactly what they get. Loss of liberty!
