The Federal Government has launched a new site with links to all of its collected apps. The site, apps.usa.gov, provides iTunes links to 18 government apps, including a TSA app to check local airport conditions, a NASA app for mission schedules and images, and "My Food-a-Pedia," to count calories and compare foods. For emergencies, there's a FEMA app, a Find Your Embassy app and an air quality app from the EPA. Most apps are either Web-based apps for all mobile browsers or iOS apps for the iPhone, but there are a few Android apps available and even a BlackBerry app, for the EPA's UV Index.

Made In the USA

Not that I'm an apple fan, but thats probably because apple is a USA company, more so than: Rim = Canada, Nokia = Finland, Samsung = Korea, HTC = ?, Sanyo = ?, Motorola = Australia (hahah)
what about Google?
Sanyo = Jap

Motorola = USA but really just Chinese crap they re-brand.. Ed Zander killed off all of their R&D.

HTC = Taiwan (Heavy Taiwanese Crap)
Motorola is based in Chicago, and I believe HTC is based in Taiwan.
the reason apple got most of the apps is because they have the largest installed base in the US
