Number 10 app puts all the PM's updates in one place

In a speech on Britain's digital future earlier this week, the Prime Minister announced superfast broadband for every UK home and established a semantic web development centre with funding of £30m.

Gordon Brown also used the speech to unveil that Downing Street is making its debut in Apple's App store, with the launch of a Number 10 iPhone app.

The free app brings together the PM's digital updates, according to Number 10, as well as news, speeches and briefings from Downing Street.
