111 agency mobile applications for your smart phone

Want to locate the nearest U.S. embassy, send an e-greeting or retrieve federal disaster information on your iPhone, BlackBerry or Android mobile device? The White House has published a list of 111 mobile applications sponsored by government agencies.

The “Comprehensive List of Government Apps”  is available now on USA.gov's Mobile Apps page as a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. The list features dozens of federal, state and local agencies, and includes mobile smart phone applications that have been completed or are under development.

For example, the State Department sponsors the embassy locator, while the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers the e-cards. The Federal Emergency Management Agency provides the disaster updates.

WebContent.gov, which is part of USA.gov, is intended to help federal Web managers and content developers to use Web 2.0 technologies. It presents detailed information on various Web sites and Gov 2.0 applications for government. Its Mobile Applications page includes information targeted to mobile application developers.

In related news, USA.gov is preparing to debut the availability of new mobile applications for the iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and other devices, according to the  White House.
