Upgrading the White House Homepage
08:00 AM EDT
This morning I'm pleased to announce something you may have already noticed: an improved homepage for WhiteHouse.gov.
We're always working to make WhiteHouse.gov easier to use and provide clearer paths to key information. Over the past eighteen months, we’ve launched a new White House blog, updated the Briefing Room and Issues sections of the site, and expanded Inside the White House, an inside look at the history of this great building. We’ve also rolled out a new version of our mobile site, rebuilt the White House iPhone app, and released new applications for Android and iPad.
This upgrade is the latest step in that process.
What makes it better?
Most visitors aren't just stopping by; they're looking for specific information about the President and his policies. With these changes, we're applying the lessons we’ve learned from our earlier updates and making sure that the homepage is a gateway to our most timely and important content. It puts tools to search the site front and center and makes the page easier to navigate. We've also made it easier to catch live events broadcast on WhiteHouse.gov/live and highlighted the many White House social media accounts.
We believe that these changes will help to make visiting WhiteHouse.gov a better experience. Take a look around let us know what you think: drop a line via our contact form or tweet @WHWeb on Twitter.
