NLRB? There's an App for That

Last week, the National Labor Relations Board announced (press release here) a new iPhone/Android app. Per NLRB Chairman Pearce:
With this app, we are using 21st Century technology to inform and educate the public about the law and their rights.
The app is largely informational. Aside from a link to the NLRB website and a "phone" button to contact the NLRB, there really isn't much functionality there. The main show seems to be a collection of information about the NLRA that users can drill down into by selecting broad categories (starting with a menu of Employee, Employer, or Union).

Just another example of the NLRB's extensive outreach efforts.
