Wayne Swan 'moving with the times' by launching new app

TREASURER Wayne Swan has launched his own smartphone application, in a bid to lure younger voters in the lead-up to the Federal Election.

Mr Swan said he had developed the app to make it a practical and functional resource for his constituents.

He joins the growing ranks of federal politicians using information technology to engage with voters, including Wyatt Roy MP and Opposition frontbencher Malcolm Turnbull.

Mr Swan said he viewed engaging through the app as a game-changer, saying he was "moving with the times".

Instead of writing letters, Mr Swan's constituents can now engage with his office through the online application.

The app can be downloaded from Apple iTunes by searching "Wayne Swan".
