Obama iPhone and iPod Touch App

Woah. As if having the creative likes of Obey Giant (Shepard Fairey), ISO50 (Scott Hansen), and Sarah Silverman weren’t enough, a couple of iPhoneDevCamp alumni volunteered to create an iPhone and iPod Touch application for Barack Obama.

You’ll have instant access to Barack’s positions on important issues, as well as local and national campaign news as it happens. Photos and videos from the campaign trail are all here, too.

I wonder how the McCain camp will follow up on this. For some reason, every time I associate John McCain and the web, I seem to refer to Mike Davidson punishing McCain’s web team for hot linking images on John McCain’s MySpace page. Classic.

Anyways, enough of the reminiscing. I commend the iPhoneDevCamp alumni amongst the other 4 who volunteered their time to the project. It truly gives some boost and good press to the iPhone development platform and its everyday application; whether it be checking your health, to learning why to vote for a presidential candidate.
