Jerame turned me on to the new Obama iPhone application late last week and I wanted to share it with ya'll. I know a lot of our readers are Mac users and several of you e-mail me from your iPhone, so this should go over like gang busters!

It's amazing how technologically advanced the Obama campaign is. While McCain can't get online, the Obama team is using every advantage computers can give. From their masterful use of text messaging to their campaign site where you can download your own local walk list, the Obama camp has definitely grasped the new face of politics.

The coolest feature of the application is "Call Your Friends." The app will go through your address book and sort them by battleground states; it arranges them in order of who you should call first to urge them to vote for Barack. Once you've made the call, the app records it and asks you how the call went: "Considering Obama," "Voting Obama," "Left message," etc. It will also provide you with the latest news, info on local volunteer activities and upcoming events in your area.

You can download the Obama iPhone app here.
