The U.S. General Services Administration has launched a newly redesigned USA.gov featuring new mobile applications and better search functionality.

"Revamped with direct input from the public, USA.gov leverages cutting-edge technology to provide faster, easier, more innovative government services directly to the American people," said Dave McClure, GSA Associate Administrator of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies.

"Through mobile apps, citizens can leverage government information to make decisions affecting their daily lives, whether checking airport wait times in line at the airport or scanning a bar code at their local store to check for food and product recalls."




USA.gov’s new search engine, powered by Bing, is nine times faster than the previous website and helps users navigate through government information with "related search-as-you-type" function.

Initially featuring 17 mobile applications, USA.gov said it plans to expand the number and invites the public to share feedback on app they find useful by using government information available on data.gov and usaspending.gov.

The USA.gov mobile apps gallery features product recalls, U.S. Postal Service tools, U.S. Transportation Security Administration’s MyTSA, USA.gov Mobile, National Institutes of Health’s mobile MedLine Plus and body mass indicator calculator, Environmental Protection Agency’s ultraviolet index, U.S. Department of Agriculture’s My Food-a-Pedia, National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s alternative fuel station locator and FuelEconomy.gov, Department of State’s America.gov mobile and U.S. embassy locator, EPA Mobile, FBI’s most wanted, Federal Emergency Management Agency mobile, NASA app, and Veterans Affairs mobile.

USA.gov provides information from and links to more than 10,000 pages of federal, state, and local government information. Information on student loans, child care, small business licensing regulations, visa information, and more are available through the website.
