The U.S. White House Released a Free iPhone App & Got a 12+ Rating

Just to prove the point that there truly is “an app for that”, the U.S. White House (as in the residence and office of the President of the United States) released their own free app…

The White House (iTunes App Store)

The White House Blog- WhiteHouse.gov: Anywhere

It packages news, photos, videos (including live video). But, here’s what amused me about the app: Like many other iPhone apps, The White House app is a victim of Apple’s whacky rating system. Yep, this app is rated 12+ for “infrequent/mild realilstic violence” and “infrequent/mild alcohol, tobacco, or drug use references”.

If you use something other than an iPhone, The White House promises a mobile friendly site shortly. It will be found at:
