Citizenship Works, available on both iOS and Android, is a comprehensive resource and step-by-step aid for those on the pathway to citizenship. It includes useful and unique features, including tools to help people prepare for citizenship tests (such as reading and writing quizzes and touch flashcards), calculators to track savings, multimedia functionality (using audio to dictate phrases to be written in English), legal resources located near the user, and much more.
Users can use the mobile app to:
- Discover if they are eligible to become a U.S. citizen
- Understand the application process
- Find legal help
- Study for the English and Civics tests
The app provides a listing of the requirements and process for naturalization, the requirements for waivers from the English and Civics tests, a calculator to determine if the physical presence requirement is met, study tools for the Civics and English tests, an up-to-date legal help directory that lets users find the nearest legal services provider, a savings calculator to prepare for legal and filing fees, and a personalized document checklist to help applicants ensure that they have all the necessary paperwork.
