Navigating Obama's 2011 Budget via your iPhone

President Obama's 2011 budget is out today, and while most want to know where their tax money is going, not many have time to sit down and pour over documents.

With the iPhone however, you can get a lot of information on the go.

If you want to get your info from the horse's mouth, so to speak, you can get the Whitehouse.gov iPhone app. On the Obama adminstration's official iPhone app, you will find a summary of what's in the budget, along with video replays and transcripts of the president's speeches.

If you're looking for a broader view of the president's new spending plan, then you can install one or more of the many news apps for the iPhone. CNN's $1.99 app for example, has a video explaining the budget, and a story breaking down some of programs and proposed budget savings.

There are some free alternatives to CNN's app, albeit not as pretty. The Associated Press, New York Times, USA Today, and Reuters all have detailed stories about the budget within their own iPhone apps

Another way to find iPhone friendly news about the budget is by downloading the Taptu app. Taptu is a search engine that provides sites formatted for your iPhone, thus making them easier to read. A quick search of "2011 budget" brought up several mobile sites including Forbes.com, Bloomberg.com, and ABC News, all with different takes on Obama's plan.
