The White House has announced on its blog that they have released an official iPhone / iPod Touch application dubbed ‘The White House’ app (here’s the iTunes link).

The application comes packed with content, including the latest news items, videos, photos and blog posts from The White House. One feature that stands out is live video streaming, which enables iPhone and iPod Touch owners to watch the President’s public events at the White House as well as other events like key speeches and press briefings in real-time.

Next week, U.S. President Barack Obama will address the nation, and his State Of The Union speech will be broadcast live both from the White House website right here and from the iPhone application.

One thing: check the name of the app to make sure you download the official one when you search from your phone. Hint: it’s the one you don’t have to pay for.

In the coming weeks, the White House says it will also launch a mobile website at mobile.WhiteHouse.gov, which will be optimized for any internet-enabled mobile device.
