Uncle Sam's App Store
BY Nancy Scola | Friday, July 2 2010
USA.gov has gotten an overhaul just in time for July 4th. GovExec's Aliya Sternstein has all the tasty details of the redesigned and relaunched site, meant to serve as a central online doorway to all the information and services that the United States federal government provides and operated by the General Services Administration (GSA). But the team behind the site seems particularly proud of its new "Mobile Apps Store" at apps.usa.gov, where all of the mobile apps and mobile websites proliferating across the federal government will gathered in one place, at USA.gov. Ones to keep an eye out for include an app for finding the nearest alternative fuel filling station, be it biodiesel or electricity; an app for researching product recalls while on the go; and My TSA, with the latest flight information straight from the Transportation Security Administration.
