Key Government Website GSA Launches Mobile Version in Spanish

The U.S. General Services Administration launched today a mobile version of GobiernoUSA.gov, the official portal of the U.S. government in Spanish with access to a bounty of government websites, programs and services. As part of the federal government’s ongoing effort to make information more accessible to all Americans, the public can now use mobile devices to more easily search for government information on such popular topics as employment, government benefits, food safety and education.

According to a recent Pew Internet and American Life Project report, Hispanics are among the most active users of the mobile Web. They take advantage of a much greater range of their phones’ features, and are more inclined to use their mobile phones to access the Internet.

The mobile-friendly version of GobiernoUSA.gov complements the English language USA.gov’s mobile version, which launched last July. The mobile version of GobiernoUSA.gov allows users to access a wide range of government programs and services on mobile devices without complicated graphics and lengthy text that can bog down mobile Web browsers.
