    The NY Senate just flipped the switch on “NYSenate for iPad,” the first application in the nation developed by a
    legislative body for the Apple iPad. The application can be downloaded
    for free today from the Apple iTunes App Store.

    The app is an extension of their other mobile tools (iphone app and android) but this one definitely has a few more bells and whistles.

    “When a user holds the iPad in portrait mode, a newspaper-style display
    of the latest storied posted by all 62 Senate offices is featured,
    along with upcoming events, the latest YouTube clips and highlighted
    Senate initiatives. When the iPad is turned to landscape mode, a
    detailed menu is revealed, providing full access to browse complete
    legislative data, video clips, calendars and more”

    You can read more about the launch here and you can download the app here.

    Give us your thoughts!

    Anyone have an iPad and can send screenshots? Sounds sweet.

    Here are a few screenshots; we’d love feedback/input ideas for v2.0 from GovLoopers!

    Looks really cool.

    Couple things that would be cool (and may already have)
    -Way to contact your representative on an issue
    -Voting records by representative

    Really, really nice app!

    What would be awesome is something GovLuvesque where you have all the Twitter handles of the legislators…also something like TweetyHall is another example.
