My MP

2010 at Public Zone, London

My MP was possibly the first smartphone app for a sitting politician anywhere in the world.

MPs could use the app as a sort of content management system, with constituents being matched to their local MP based on postcode and location searches.

I was in the thick of user experience and design as we grew the app from one to thirty registered MPs, and also took the app to various events and party conferences.

The app was shortlisted for a whole range of awards including the Third Sector Excellence awards, Nominet Internet Awards, and it was also given Webby ‘Honoree’ status, which I think is meant to be quite good.
