WhiteHouse.gov To Go

Have you ever tried to open a web link on a mobile device and the page looked jumbled or just hard to read? It can be pretty annoying, particularly in this day and age when more people are getting their info on the go. So here at the White House, we're addressing this problem with a new feature that optimizes WhiteHouse.gov for your mobile device, such as a BlackBerry, Palm Pre or really anything with a mobile browser. The best part is that it is pretty easy to try out, because it works automatically: just visit WhiteHouse.gov from your mobile device. (Of course, don't forget that we recently launched the White House App for iPhone and iPod Touch).

The Mobile.WhiteHouse.gov program is just the latest in our effort to make our content available on a broad number of platforms as technology changes how--and where--people get their information. And we'll continue look for new opportunities to develop applications for even more mobile platforms.

Oh, and one more thing.

WhiteHouse.gov is being featured by Apple as "iPad ready" thanks to our use of the latest web standards, such as HTML5 video support. This includes the ability to watch our live and on-demand video.

Update, Sept. 3, 2012: We've released updates for the White House apps for iPhone, iPad and Android and relaunched the mobile version of WhiteHouse.gov.
