Mobile App Helps Immigrants Apply for Citizenship

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

Forget about Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja. A new mobile app aims to help green card holders apply for American citizenship.

CitizenshipWorks already exists in website form. The site, which is partnered with several immigration advocacy and legal support organizations, prides itself on being a one-stop-shop to help legal permanent residents living in the United States naturalize, and they've got a 2012 Webby award ("Best Law Site of 2012") to back it up. On Tuesday, the information they offer became available on smartphones, too.

The free app is available in English and Spanish. Like the site, it helps people determine whether they qualify for citizenship, find legal help if they need it, and study for the English and civics tests that are part of the naturalization process.
