The Presidential Election for the United States will take place on November 6, 2012, and will be the 57th time that a politician has been elected to have the most powerful job in the world. The build up has already started, with the candidates now appearing in debates on TV etc. For those of you who are unable to be near a TV set when these live debates are going on, then there is a host of apps to keep you up-to-date, all with iOS 5 support.
There are a number of apps that will all do just a good a job, but it will always come down to personal preference, and how they put the candidates points across. The first is called POLITICO, which supports the iPhone and iPad. You’ll be happy to know that the app is free, and is the one place where you can get in-depth coverage fast. Going back a few years we would have had to try and be next to a TV or wait until the media was able to update their websites fast enough. More details on the POLITICO iPhone app can be found on iTunes.
Huddle is another app by POLITICO, but will roundup the day’s top congressional news. What we like about this is how you are not bombarded with every bit of news, just the juicy bits. The reporter supplying the content is Jonathan Allen, who also provides links to twitter and Facebook, just so you can share your views. iTunes has more details on this app.
Not to pick sides here, it’s just the first app that we came across from all the candidates. Obama 2012 is an app that makes it easy for you to keep in touch with the current President to stay in office for a second term. You will gain access to the latest videos, photos, news and events that are going on, such as the live debates like the one that took place just a few days ago. Visit iTunes for more.
These are just three apps that are available to keep you up-to-date with the Presidential Election Campaign, if you have any more then please share them with our readers.
