GPO releases first mobile app

The Government Printing Office has developed and released its first mobile app. It's a mobile member guide that provides information on members of Congress. The GPO guide lets users search for members by name, by party, by state or by the chamber they serve in. GPO decided to take a web-based approach to apps rather than developing different versions for each mobile platform. The office says it works well on iPhone, Android and Blackberry devices, and it expects to release more apps in the coming months.
