Cool? You Bet. Science.gov Mobile Named to Top Ten in Best Federal Apps
Coolness? Check. Usefulness? Check. Ease of Use? Check. The Science.gov Mobile application has been named among the Top Ten in Best Federal Apps by Government Computer News (GCN). The recognition is timely, too. The Administration recently issued Digital Government: Building a 21st Century Platform to Better Serve the American People, the strategy which calls on all federal agencies to begin making mobile applications to better serve the American public. GCN called its Top Ten "ahead of the curve" with apps already in place. The Science.gov mobile application was developed by and is hosted at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) on behalf of the multi-agency Science.gov Alliance. Now anywhere, anytime, you can go to m.science.gov to get science information quickly.
