The Economist Launches Tablet-Only 2012 Election App

The free HTML5 app aggregates content, tweets, links

The Economist Group is giving political junkies one more way to follow the 2012 election with a just-announced, tablet-only app. The free HTML5 app, called Electionism, will include content from The Economist and its D.C.-insider sister publication, Roll Call, as well as a “Noted Elsewhere” section where journalists will share links to what’s on their reading lists and a “Latest From Twitter” section that will aggregate the most notable tweets from candidates, pundits, publications and other politically savvy sources.
