Last week we rolled out the new White House iPhone app, which you can download for free from the iTunes App Store. It includes everything from the latest blog posts, to outstanding photos from the photo office, to White House videos – like the one below, for example, in which Press Secretary Robert Gibbs gives a slightly sillier take on our app than the initial blog post may have:
As Gibbs explains in the video, the pride and joy of the app may be the fact that now you can watch White House live-streaming video wherever you happen to be. For example, just today you can watch the President and the Vice President at a Middle Class Task Force meeting at 11:00 EST, even if you're hunkered down hiding from the rain at a bus stop as a lot of people in DC are right now. At 1:00 you can watch the selfsame Robert Gibbs take on the White House press corps, even if you’re a White House reporter who decided to just stay in bed today. And at 2:20 you can watch the President welcome last season's NBA Champion Los Angeles Lakers, even if you're at a hockey game because watching your team get beat by the Lakers over and over made you look for other sports to stir your passions.
