The U.K. is set to be at the whim of Apple with the new David Cameron iPad app. The app is being designed specifically for the British PM to help him monitor his country from a glance.
Cameron is reportedly all about his iPad 2, using it to read the paper and tune into radio programs. The David Cameron iPad app will feature information on the country's NHS (healthcare) waiting list, its crime statistics and its unemployment figures among other things. The app also features a constantly updated stream of information from both Google and Twitter. The app is being developed by Cameron's cabinet and is expected to be ready to go sometime in March of 2013. If the app is a hit in Britain, it may very well make its way over to other countries as well.
