The Prime Minster’s Office has launched a new app in preparation for US President Barack Obama’s visit on March 20, 2013.

The application, which is already available for download though Apple‘s AppStore, and Google Play,  is meant to assist journalists covering the presidential visit, but will also be open to the average citizen craving real time updates.

Besides text updates, the application will include visuals updates from Obama’s visit, as well as interfacing with social networks.

The application will offer full details about each event Obama is scheduled to participate in, as well as a real-time stream of video and still photographs from Government Press Office’s official photographers, news agencies and amateur photographers shooting via mobile phones.

Now available in Hebrew and English, the app soon will be available in Arabic, Ynet  reported.

The app was announced Sunday at a preparatory meeting ahead of Obama’s visit to Israel later this month. Representatives from the Prime Minister’s Office, the president’s residence, the Foreign Ministry, the Defense Ministry, the Israel Police, the Jerusalem Municipality, Ben-Gurion International Airport and other agencies attended the meeting.

National Security Adviser Yaakov Amidror said it was “very important” that the visit be marked by three points: “One, that it go smoothly from start to finish. It is important for us that the Prime Minister and the President have fruitful and productive talks — this is the basis for the continuation of work over the next four years. It is important to us that the President and all those who watch the visit see the beautiful Land of Israel as much as possible given the short schedule.

Cooperation between all elements — among all the Israelis, and between us and the Americans — is also vital for the success of the visit.”  (via JTA)
