Obama campaign releases iPhone application

Presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama has made history with use of the Internet and web 2.0 technology for fundraising, social networking and even text-messaged the announcement of his running mate, Delaware Senator Joe Biden. But now Obama, Democrat of Illinois, has made another leap.

He has his own iPhone application.

The Obama campaign released the application for the iPhone 3G on Thursday, with 33 days left before the Nov. 4 election. The free app will allow users to stay on top of campaign news, get mapping directions to local campaign events, call fellow supporters and look at media relating to the campaign. The application is also compatible for the iPod Touch.

As of this writing, an iPhone application had not been introduced by the camapign of Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain. Ron Paul appears to have had an iPhone app during his campaign, but we are unable to locate it anymore.
