Rep. Sue Myrick announced today the launching of her very own IPhone app. The app synchronizes with her website content and provides instant access to videos, updates on current legislation, events and tour information. Constituents can also contact Rep. Myrick directly using the app.
Myrick is one of the first Congressmen to have a mobile phone application. Yesterday, Congressman Chaka Fattah became the first Democrat with an app in the House.
For Myrick, it’s another way to further her reputation as an accessible Congressman.
“It’s always been a priority to keep in touch with constituents, and the iPhone app is a great way to communicate,” Rep. Myrick said. “Many people use their iPhone or other smart phone for everything – phone calls, emails, social networking – so the application makes it easy for people to get information and send feedback about whatever’s on their mind.”
The application will be available for free download via iTunes. Versions will be available for iPhone, iPad, and other smart phones.
