Romney Will Announce Vice Presidential Pick via App

Campaign hopes to leapfrog the press, break news

It would appear that the Mitt Romney campaign loves apps.

With less than 100 days to go, Mitt Romney's digital team this morning announced an iPhone and Android app called "Mitt's vp" that will "enable push notifications to get the exciting [vp] news before the press and just about everyone else." 

This isn't the Romney camp's first foray into the app world. Last May the campaign created a Romney-centric Instagram-esque app, which infamously bungled the spelling of the word "America" and got Mitt trending on Twitter in an unfortunate way. 

While it sports a sleek design, the app, as it stands now, is little more than a way for supporters to sync Facebook and Twitter accounts and make seamless donations to the Romney campaign.
