The Government Printing Office had approximately 53,000 visits to its 2013 fiscal budget mobile web application in the first 24 hours the site was available.
The number of visits to the budget FY13 app eclipses the total number of visits to GPO’s first app, the Mobile Member Guide for the 112th Congress, which has had about 50,000 visits since its release in November.
“This record number of visits to the FY 2013 Budget app is an outstanding achievement for GPO and our employees,” said Acting Public Printer Davita Vance-Cooks. “GPO is committed to Keeping America Informed through any platform that meets the needs of our customers. Apps are the next step in the evolution of accessing information and GPO is here to provide that avenue to the public.”
The app provides links to GPO’s Federal Digital System (FDsys) where summary tables and additional books of the Budget, including the Analytical Perspectives, Appendix, and Historical Tables are available.
The public can take advantage of the free mobile Web app on major mobile device platforms, including iOS 4.3 and above, Android 2.2 and above, and Blackberry OS version 6.0 and above, the agency said.
