Government apps provide information when you're on the go. Find instant notification of recalls to the status of veterans benefits. USA.gov is working hard to make government easy, convenient, and accessible.
An app, short for "application," is a tool that helps you accomplish a task or find information. The apps in the USA.gov Apps Gallery are designed to work on your mobile phone. Some need to be downloaded to your phone while others can be accessed using your phone's web browser.
All the apps featured currently are free. Charges from your cell phone carrier may apply.
The apps featured in our gallery were developed by government agencies on a variety of platforms. Currently, we have apps for iPhone, Android and Blackberry. A lot of our apps are mobile-friendly websites, which means they can be accessed by any device. Each agency works one-on-one with the separate platform and signs a terms of service agreement with them, so it is up to the individual agency to decide which platform to use. At this time, there is no coordinated plan to offer each and every app on every platform.
If you have problems with an app from the U.S. government, please send us an e-mail.
