Senate GOP Campaign App Now with Foursquare and More

BY Nancy Scola | Thursday, September 23 2010

The National Republican Senatorial Committee announces that it has today released the latest build of its iPhone, iPad, and iPod app, an upgrade that adds some greater interactivity to the last iteration.

Among the added features: a video and photo upload interface that encourages folks to become "mobile volunteer trackers" (geek bit: background processing, says the NRSC, allows you to upload media while at the same time pushing it out via Facebook and Twitter, no wait), Twitter streams based on relevant Senate races, a donation link (of course, you know why it's not processed in-app) and Foursquare check-in for folks to register their location when "at rallies, volunteering, etc."

The updated NRSC app is available in the iTunes store.
