Watch Your Phone for Mitt Romney's VP Pick
The election goes high tech with new apps to keep you informed about the election, and about the vice presidential pick.
Mitt Romney's presidential campaign released an app for Android and iOS platforms yesterday that will announce the selection of his vice presidential pick. The app will push a notification to your phone when the announcement is made, offering you the chance to find out from them first.
A description from the Mitt Romney campaign site:
There's no telling when Mitt will choose his VP. But when he does, be the first to find out with Mitt's VP app. Share with friends and earn exclusive campaign gear.
In mid-April, the Romney Campaign called on Brookline's Beth Myers to head up the search. She posted the announcement on the site.
“Soon everyone will know who Mitt Romney selects as his Vice Presidential running mate. With this new app, users can be the first to know the second member of America’s Comeback Team," Beth Myers, Romney Campaign Senior Adviser, said in a statement.
Other than the VP announcement, Romney's app includes a link to his Twitter account and his donation page.
Obama's app, on the other hand, includes links to articles and videos, ways to take action, events, and his campaign donation page. The Obama campaign app is currently available only on iPhones, with an Android version coming soon.
