"This is the first official Smartphone app built for a presidential inauguration," said Nate Lubin, PIC digital director. "We wanted to build a tool that will enable us to reach new people in new ways. This app does just that."
The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies, the group that handles the details of the actual swearing-in ceremony at the Capitol, has an application that features live streaming of the ceremony, maps for ticket-holders and non-ticket-holders, and links to the Secret Service's Twitter feed, Politco said.
"For the first time ever, a mobile Web app will help anyone on Inauguration Day figure out the best route from the Metro stations right to their ticketed area," Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., chairman of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies, said in a statement. "These tickets and this new site are a big part of our efforts to make sure these ceremonies are safe and enjoyable for everyone who attends."
