I submitted two apps to the Apps for America 2 contest. They provide an interface to the USASpending.gov website, taking you current location and providing information on the federal money being spent locally.
Local Spending – Provides you information on the federal money being spent in your current zip code, district or state.
Local Recovery – Provides the amount of federal recovery money that has been spent in your current zip code, district or state.
While I hope I win something, I had a lot of fun just working on the apps. I got to learn a lot about using PHP to pull in information from an API and restructure it. Good times!
