Prime Minister Narendra Modi is inviting ideas from the public for developing a mobile app for the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO). Yes, our PM wants to make the PMO mobile friendly. The PMO will launch a competition through the MyGov.in website to seek ideas for the PMO mobile app.
He said that we need to focus on newer areas like security, apps and cloud. We need a revolution in mobile governance. The faster the industry make mobile apps, the faster it capture the market.
The government will work with global technology giant Google for selecting the best ideas and the teams will be sent to the US. The government is also planning to to develop the entire software.
There is already an official ‘PMO India‘ mobile app in Google Play Store, which was developed in May 2013, which focuses on show casing the achievements of the then UPA Government. The app is not updated and it still shows the previous Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Sing’s photo!
