Wauwatosa – Today, the campaign of Scott Walker, Milwaukee County executive and candidate for governor, released an application for the iPhoneand iPad – making it the first ever mobile application dedicated to Wisconsin politics.

“Our campaign has the best, most organized network of real supporters doing real work online and I’m thrilled to be able to arm them with another useful tool,” said Walker.  “We are continuing to tap into the true grassroots movement that has developed in every county of our state by empowering our supporters to share our plan to put Wisconsin back to work.”

“The Walker Campaign is truly a model for using technology to build support,” said Matthew Friedel, President and founder of Jam-Mobile.com, a leading developer of innovative custom iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, and Android mobile software applications and creator of the app.  “I can say with confidence that unlike any candidate in Wisconsin, and perhaps elsewhere, he knows how to use 21st Century tools to allow his supporters to help him spread his message.” 

Users can download the application for free from the iTunes App Store.  Once downloaded, supporters can click on the brown bag icon on their iPhone or iPad for access to issues summaries, news, videos, and more that they can share with their friends to spread Walker’s message.  Users can even sign up new supporters or solicit contributions right from the app.

“The application puts Scott Walker even further ahead of his competitors when it comes to the use of social media and technology.  Walker’s online community, MyScottSpot, has more than 7,000 active members, while he also enjoys enthusiastic and active support on other social media outletswith the most YouTube views, the most Twitter followers, and the greatest level of interaction on Facebook of any candidate in Wisconsin.
