After the success of 2008 iPhone app, Obama sets up tech office for 2012 campaign

Technology has impacted all sectors of our life. Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign reaffirms this. It was Obama who was the first to release an iPhone app to popularize his campaign. This time around, things are set to get even snazzier as he has set up a technology field office for the purpose.


According to Obama campaign press secretary Katie Hogan, “We learned from 2008 that using the talents and skills of our supporters was a key to building the most effective organization.
We’re taking the next step by providing tools and space for supporters in the technology community to help the campaign extend our current tools like and our mobile applications.”

So far nothing more is known as yet about the campaign, but this time around they might be in for advertizing themselves on smartphones and tablets. This is the first-of-its-kind campaign, anywhere in the world. Check out more at
