White House iPhone app presented by Gibbs

Press Secretary Robert Gibbs offered a light-hearted take Monday morning on the White House iPhone app unveiled last week, walking viewers through a jaunty parody iPhone ad offering "the latest news from the administration in the palm of your hand."

"In fact, if you want to see me set the White House press corps straight every day -- live -- now there's an app for that," he joked.

But some conservatives saw the playful White House parody as an opportunity for a more biting one of their own, detailing how the iPhone could be used by the long-term unemployed to get turn-by-turn directions to the nearest welfare office.

"Haven't heard from Obama in the last six minutes and need to make sure he's still in charge? There's an app for that," the team at Everyday Banter quipped.
