Visible Vote is an app I think President Obama would love! He could give congress a heads up on how to vote on a bill w/o having to hold a meeting or send out staffers to the hill. He can vote yes/no/don’t care and send congress members emails via the app. It’s everything I think President Obama would love as a BlackBerry user. He is very aware of technology and this could pose to be an excellent step forward in the way he lets congress know how he feels on current bills.

I just looked at all the apps. I have and came to a conclusion that Obama will like the evernotes app. He could take notes, take pictures, and do a video thing for his kids. I could totally see Obama taking notes, taking pictures and sending them to his wife and kids! It’s because the app. I good to use anytime, anywhere and for whatever reasons! The president can’t miss a thing that’s why!

How about a copy of Google Latitude so he can tell where everyone is at any given time? So he knows if Biden has left the building or not? :) Wait, I suppose he the most powerful spy network in the world to do that for him, never mind…

Seriously?! Obama doesn’t want the app I’m going to mention, he has it. The Spoof App. Obama can make prank calls to the likes of Hilary Clinton, Joe Biden, etc. He might even dial across the world and start WWIII with the app. He probably buys minutes in the app so he doesn’t have the 2 min ads.

Obama has to have Quickpull installed. When you’re the president of the united states and your app memory runs low, you can’t just sit there and pull the battery out. You need to be a little sly with it and click a button and put the phone back in the holster until it boots back up.

President Barack Obama is an avid BlackBerry user and in a recent book published by Kasper Hauser, we get a hilarious look at what his message folder might look like.

The San-Fransisco comedy troupe, Kasper Hauser, have compiled and published a collection of messages between Mr. Obama and his various presidential colleagues, including Vice President Joe Biden, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The messages aren’t real and it’s all in the name of comedy. The BlackBerry software from Genesis Key, as well as the NSA, would never let these messages actually be published. It’s all just fun and jokes.

Here are some excerpts from the book
