Presidential Inauguration goes mobile

Don’t worry if you are unable to attend the 57th Presidential Inauguration on Monday, January 21 to watch President Obama being sworn in for his second and final term. The Presidential Inauguration goes mobile

and you can watch all the festivities on your iPhone or Android powered device.

The actual swearing is Sunday, January 20. Since, it is on a  Sunday, the official ceremony and parade take place on Monday, January 21st, in our Nation’s capital.

According to the office of Senator Charles Schumer, who has been elected to serve as the Chairman of the 2013 Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies,  “this is the seventh time in U.S. history that the constitutionally mandated inauguration date has fallen on a Sunday.”

That date is also the federal holiday for Martin Luther King Jr day and marks the second time in history that a Presidential Inauguration is held on Martin Luther King Jr. day.  The first time was President Bill Clinton’s second inauguration on Monday, Jan. 20, 1997.

The Presidential Inauguration Committee (PIC) has released an application that is quite comprehensive.  Not only can you watch the live feed of the Inauguration, you can also keep up with the latest updates, receive push notifications, if desired, and find links for volunteer opportunities.

If you are attending the Inauguration, there are even handy maps to help guide you there.

When I searched the Apple app store for the app, I had some difficulty finding it so we will save you the trouble.  The easiest way to obtain the free app is directly from the Presidential Inauguration Committee website.

Simply enter your phone number and you’ll instantly receive a link so that you can download the app.

If you search the Apple or Android stores for the app, you will not find it when searching for Presidential Inauguration Committee or PIC. Instead, simply type in Inaugural 2013 and make sure you select the application that is free and from AT&T.

If you want to keep us with the festivities without downloading an app, the Joint Congressional Committee’s website is optimized for all platforms.

The President Inauguration goes mobile and you can easily watch all of the festivities.
