On January 21, 2013 it will be a huge day for Barack Obama because the President will be sworn in on that day, and while there will be a multitude of news channels keeping you updated as the event unfolds, those with a mobile device will be able to watch Obama’s Presidential Inauguration live with the official app for Android and iOS users.
The official app was released yesterday and will keep you fully up-to-date with the proceedings, and one of the key features of this mobile app is livestream, so the moment the news hits it will be streamed to your mobile device. The app is a simple one to use and the moment you open it on your smartphone or tablet you’ll have the choice to enter your cell phone number so that you can receive live updates.
However, you can skip this process and go directly to the in-built features of the Inaugural 2013 app by AT&T Services, Inc. One such feature is searching for events in your neighbored and become a volunteer and if you do find yourself wanting to head to Washington, D.C. for the big day, then the app will instruct you of all the areas that will be off limits to the public.
Another app that you might consider is Inauguration Events 2013 (US Presidential Inauguration), which allows you to plan for the event, so you can find where to purchase tickets, where the parties are and where you can have some fun without the need for an invite. This app costs just $0.99.
Finally there is the Inauguration app developed by Andrews Air Force Base, which will offer news articles, an interactive map for medical facilities, the parade route, what items are prohibited and also photos live from the event as well.
Will you be watching Obama’s Presidential Inauguration live in person or via an app?
