GSA is collecting data about which federal agencies have mobile applications — apps that are specifically designed to be accessed via an iPhone or other mobile device.
Examples could include: accessing real-time weather data and maps, looking up product recalls with a barcode #, locating a nearby government facility, getting evaluation ratings about a health care professional, etc. (As one example, see NASA: http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/iphone/spaceimages/).
They are looking for apps that have already developed, as well as those that are under development and may be available in the next several weeks.
GSA has put together a very simple survey (just a few Qs) to make it easier for you to share what you have, and later share it with everyone:
At this time, they only need to collect data on FEDERAL apps. But if you’re a state or local agency and have something great to share, feel free to share it as well.
They do have quick turnaround to collect the data, so please respond no later than COB this Wednesday, March 3.
This is a great opportunity to GSA about new, innovative tools you’ve created that make it easier for people to access key government information and services — no matter where they’re located.
