Washington (CNN) - Want to find out who's the next speaker at Conservative Political Action Conference? There's an app for that.
Attendees at this year's CPAC have the option of downloading an iPhone application that includes an event schedule, as well as the latest CPAC news, video and photos.
The application was developed over ten days by PurpleForge, which focuses on social networking and mobile application technologies, and RaiseDigital, a software development outfit looking to expand into politics.
Justin Hart, Managing Director of RaiseDigital, told CNN he thinks the political world is one in desperate need of a technological upgrade.
"I knew from talking to bloggers that CPAC was looking a little stale, and we were looking to help bring them into the new age."
Hart says RaiseDigital is looking to develop a feature that might interest politicians themselves – the ability to donate to a campaign through an iPhone app while complying with the federal government's campaign finance recordkeeping requirements.
