Obama Administration this pas weekend launched an "app store," featuring apps on a variety of subjects. Most apps are extensions of a particular branch or agency of US government, such as Veteran's Affairs or NASA. However a few seem aimed at a particular initiative, such as the Body Mass Index calculator or an alternative fuel locator. While some are mobile websites available for any mobile phone, others are actual apps intended for a specific platform such as BlackBerry, Android, or iPhone.

Eventually over 100 apps could become available. A spreadsheet on USA.gov listed 109, however some appeared to not be intended for public use and likely never would be listed. More could be added if the Administration decides to promote third-party developers using open government data in their own applications.
