Obama uses iPhone to win support

US Democratic candidate Barack Obama is set to turn the iPhone into a political recruiting tool with an application aimed at getting the vote out.

The software has a "Call Friends" option to help organise contacts in swing states.

A note about the software on Mr Obama's blog said: "This tool is designed to help you become more directly involved in our campaign to change the country."

The free application was developed by volunteers in less than three weeks.

"This really has the potential to help the campaign," said Jason Grigsby, one of the project leaders.

"The use of mobile technology to get out the vote and get people involved is a way for the grass roots to really make an impact."
