Obama iPhone App

Oct 2nd, 2008 | By | Category: iPhone

Barack Obama has introduced a new tool for catering to his wired backers – the Obama ’08 iPhone app (app store link).


  • Call Friends: A great volunteering tool that lets you make a difference any time you want by talking to people you already know. Your contacts are prioritized by key battleground states, and you can make calls and organize results all in one place.
  • Call Stats: See nationwide Obama ’08 Call Friends totals and find out how your call totals compare to leading callers.
  • Get Involved: Do more. Find and contact your local Obama for America HQ.
  • Receive Updates: Receive the latest news and announcements via text messages or email.
  • News: Browse complete coverage of national and local campaign news.
  • Local Events: Find local events, share by email and get maps and directions.
  • Media: Browse videos and photos from the campaign
  • Issues: Get clear facts about Barack Obama and Joe Biden’s plan for essential issues facing Americans.

We reported last week that John McCain’s supporters prefer to get their news and entertainment from television, while Barack Obama’s supporters tend to be “media generalists” who get their news and entertainment from assorted media platforms. 

The new app plays directly to Obama supporter’s approach to getting news.
