David Cameron gets a £20,000 personalised iPad app to govern the country

When you are expected to be politically correct, financially sound, and a gadget lover, what would you splurge on? Well, not a personalised iPad app for sure. But then again, not everyone is as bold as the UK PM David Cameron. The personalized iPad app will come at the cost of £20,000 ($31,720) to the taxpayer. So what does it do, you ask? It is said to feature a management dashboard that will enable the PM “instant access to crime statistics, unemployment figures NHS waiting lists and the latest polling data.”. It will also allow access to news from a particular constituency that integrates Google search trends, and Twitter feeds of MPs and government officials. That way, he can also monitor his ministers and the working of his government.
