You don’t need C-SPAN to keep up with what’s going on at the White House, thanks to a new iPhone app launched by the White House last week.
The White House posted a quick tutorial about the app on its blog today, with White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs demonstrating the app’s handy little features. The tongue-in-cheek video won’t embed, unfortunately, but you can check it out here:
The blog also praises all of the video you can watch by downloading the free app through iTunes, all while taking a few potshots at reporters, commuters and fans of any NBA team other than the Los Angeles Lakers.
Just today you can watch the President and the Vice President at a Middle Class Task Force meeting at 11:00 EST, even if you’re hunkered down hiding from the rain at a bus stop as a lot of people in DC are right now. At 1:00 you can watch the selfsame Robert Gibbs take on the White House press corps, even if you’re a White House reporter who decided to just stay in bed today. And at 2:20 you can watch the President welcome last season’s NBA Champion Los Angeles Lakers, even if you’re at a hockey game because watching your team get beat by the Lakers over and over made you look for other sports to stir your passions.”
