Israel launching an official iPhone and Android app to make Obama widely available during visit to Israel.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office on Monday unveiled an official smartphone app allowing users to track Obama during his stay in Israel.

The app is expected to be used heavily by journalists, but will allow anyone to receive real-time updates and watch streaming video of the American leader’s various stops around the country.
