I just downloaded a brand new free iPhone app called iGaza. I was pleasantly surprised by how good this is. It brings a stream of news about Palestine, more specifically Gaza and activism to break the blockade of Gaza right to your phone.
It draws from wide range of sources including mainstream media and human rights groups and has buttons that give you all the latest news on a number of specific topics. The application presents a short summary of an item and a link to the original, and allows easy sharing via social media.
iGaza also finds and plays Palestine-related videos from many sources. One of my favorite features is an instant library of major UN resolutions relating to Palestine. Always handy in a debate!
There’s even a button that will allow you to instantly send a protest email to a representative of the Israeli state. iGaza is designed by UK-based developer Gary McFarlane.
