The resources and tools of the Arkansas state government are coming to a wrist near you.
Less than a month after the Apple Watch was released widely to the public, the Arkansas Information Consortium — a subsidiary of NIC Inc. — launched the first official government application designed for the Apple Watch. And variations of the app are expected to begin showing up in Mississippi, Maryland and Texas in the coming weeks.
The Arkansas app, called Gov2Go, is designed to serve as a citizen’s personal digital government assistant, according to a news release from NIC. The app will keep track of government deadlines in a personalized calendar and allow the user to set reminders for property tax payments, vehicle registration renewals and other services.
