The U.S. federal government may not be where you’d expect to see mobile innovation or find good app development suggestions. While there’s still a public sector bureaucracy in government, a number of government agencies are beginning to develop new ways to connect with citizens and invest in mobile technologies for internal use.

Still, the innovation is happening and the agencies that have already taken up the challenge are good models for agencies that have yet to do so.
