Bangalore: British Prime Minister, David Cameron is going to get a personalized App for his iPad to stay ahead and updated in Government affairs. This App will be a one-stop store for all the happening related to country’s facts, issues and performance.  There is also a rumor that this App will be available to the public after a while.

The London Times and The Telegraph has stated that “Mr Cameron will be able to see at a glance the latest NHS waiting-list figures, crime statistics, unemployment numbers and myriad other data which, in the short term, could provide quite grim reading”. And “The programmers inside Cabinet Office are working on the App for the Prime Minister that will bring together the latest information from across government with his favorite new sources”.

The intended App is said to have “real time” news from Google, Twitter and other news sources. This implies that the App will rely on the open data stream which already exists on internet. The secrecy still prevails whether this will be a real App or just another highly protected webpage exclusively for British Prime Minister.

Reports say that the App is going to the launched in March 2012. We suppose this long delay is due to the long security testing process it has to pass through, as the App may include confidential government data.  Is India Government planning something like this which is using the high end technology of the gadget and App world to channelize government information?
