Change.gov iPhone App Now Available

Earlier this month we noted that Barack Obama’s Presidential transition site Change.gov had added OpenID login for commenters and that the site had traded the traditional copyright for the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license. Last week, the iPhone app for Change.gov was added to Apple’s Web apps page, thanks to the Creative Commons license.

According to Christopher Carfi, co-founder of Cerado, the company behind the creation of the widgets, the fact that Change.gov is now iPhone, mobile and widget-enabled is largely due to Change.gov opening up its content with the Creative Commons license.

In addition to the iPhone app, using their Ventana service, Cerado created a widget version of Change.gov that includes a news and agenda feed, links to the team, as well as links to Obama inspired books on Amazon. You can download it here.
