makes second Top Ten list

A mobile application for a science website developed by a federal office in Oak Ridge has been named one of the ten best federal apps by Government Computer News.

The Mobile application was also recently named to InformationWeek’s Ten Handy Mobile Apps From Uncle Sam.

The application was developed by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Scientific and Technical Information.

“The Mobile application is the only interagency app to make both lists,” an OSTI news release said.

OSTI said the Obama Administration recently issued Digital Government: Building a 21st Century Platform to Better Serve the American People, a strategy that calls on federal agencies to begin making mobile applications to better serve the American public.

OSTI developed and hosts the mobile app on behalf of the multi-agency Alliance.
