C-SPAN, the Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network which broadcasts coverage of government proceedings and public affairs programming, has launched its first application (free) bringing a number of these services to the iPhone and iPod Touch. These services are:
C-SPAN: Live coverage of House of Representatives
C-SPAN 2: Live coverage of Senate
The application is light and quick to load on an iPhone 3G, but there is a distinct lack of iPhone integration and features commonly seen in the majority of third party applications - the design is lacking a certain something. There is no live video, but the radio stream quality is excellent. It also works over 3G.
We'll keep you posted as updates for this long-awaited application arrive, until then you can download it for free by visiting its App Store page here: http://bit.ly/4IRa0d
