Make your iPhone patriotic - for free

Deputise your iOS device with the PatriotApp

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

If it's the $1.99 price that has been preventing you from being properly patriotic then hold back no more - until Christmas you can download the PatroitApp for free.

The application simplifies reporting suspicious activity, instantly sending photograph-supported e-mails to federal bodies who need to know whether your neighbour is stockpiling weapons of mass destruction or just enriching uranium on the side: it's your patriotic duty to report anything you don't like the look of.

So until the end of the month the iPhone app is available for free, after which those wanting to report on suspected Eurasian agents will have to fall back on e-mail, the telephone or pony up the $2 price of the app. ®
