’s iPhone App for Tracking Simulus Spending



Okay iPhone app junkies, here’s a good one.

“The Recovery Project Search,” launched by the state of Arkansas, helps you track stimulus spending in the Natural State. It’s billed as “the first state government in the nation to develop and release an iPhone application with the ability to search projects funded with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) stimulus funds.” Fun!

You search for spending by location (including projects “near you”), keyword and categories, including conservation, drug treatment, highways, efficiency, information and traffic.

The app serves up individual projects, the amount of money appropriated, when the project begins and how complete the project is. The app also lets you track that project, so you’ll know when changes occur.

For those intensely interested in how the state is spending its share of the stimulus money, this app is useful, geeky fun. You can find it in the iTunes app store by searching for “ Recovery Project Search” or you can download it here.
