The CIA Goes Mobile

In response to the growing use of mobile devices, the Central Intelligence Agency has launched a mobile version of their website that provides on-the-go users access to documents and even restricted exhibits.

The mobile site launched on Aug. 6, 2012 and was designed so that “readers can now access mobile-friendly versions of CIA.gov materials on their small screens…”

Here are some of the features you can find on the new mobile version:

  • Quick Leadership
  • Mission and History Facts
  • Press Releases (dating back to 2010)
  • Career and Job Information
  • Organizational overviews
  • Contact Information

Our favorite feature though, is the “CIA Museum”. It’s the only place where the public can gain access to some of the the artifacts and stories from the agency’s bricks and mortar museum facility located in McLean, VA. The actual building isn’t open to non-government personnel, but if you want to see exhibits and read stories about the CIA’s history, you can now do so from your mobile device.

The agency said online visitors to the new gallery can read about its role in the hunt for Usama Bin Ladin; see how the Cold War-era CIA used a disguised deep sea mining ship, the Glomar Explorer, during a highly secret six-year effort to retrieve a sunken Soviet submarine from the Pacific Ocean floor; and learn how the Agency used a carefully constructed ruse to rescue six Americans from Tehran in 1979.

While we love the mobile website, we’re not too keen on having to type “cia.gov/mobile” into the browser to get there. As soon as they add redirection script though, we’ll give them an A+
