The Feds have an App for That!

Open government data powers software applications that help people make informed decisions in their lives and work. Download such apps as FEMA App, Food Security Patrol, Elder Care Finder, iCitizen, Social Security Benefits Planner, and Where Are The Jobs, among many others. This page contains just a few examples of government, community, and business tools that use open government data from the United States, are accessible, vetted, and available, and are, for the majority, free and do not require registration to use.
