The Republican National Convention of 2016 could go down as one of the most important conventions in the history of American politics, which is precisely why it deserves its very own mobile app.

Available for both the iOS and Android platforms, the Republican National Convention app will allow people interested in the event to view live-streamed video including live 360-degree footage. Users who are unable to follow the event live can watch highlight videos at a later time and date on demand.

Those who are lucky enough to attend the Republican National Convention can use the app to find their way around and access visitor information.

The app is a great example of smartphone technology being used to increase political engagement.
