Australia in Your Pocket

For the first time, you can have all of the members of the Australian Parliament right in your pocket.

AUSTRALIA PARLIAMENT offers all of the vital information you need to be an active and effective citizen. Australia Parliament for iOS ($1.99) provides you with contact, biographical, and committee information. Australia Parliament for Mobile Web ($14.99) keeps you updated for one full year and adds access from an Android, BlackBerry, or any web browser.

Search for the senator or MP you want to contact and then call, email, or post feedback to their web forms. Visiting the capital? Tap on any address and get directions using Apple maps. Want to follow legislation? Visit the "More" section and search for the bills you want to track and see how much the each member raised for his or her most recent campaign.

The applications include bookmarks you assign, a link to the official Parliament bill information system, a special tab for new members of the legislature, a link to the governor's official website, the mobile-friendly news link to ABC News, our Twitter feed and blog, polls on issues, user feedback, FAQ, and the ability to email us updates on members of Parliament.

Our goal is to maintain the most comprehensive and up-to-date data on members of the Australian Parliament. Information in these applications is strictly maintained by our team, which is led by Simone Kolaric, who lives in Australia, and Bob Steere of the United States. We also receive helpful updates from our users, which we check out to make sure they are correct. You can follow our development on Facebook or Twitter @AustraliaApp.
