FOX News Candidate Tracker App

FOXNews.com is a website dedicated to providing readers with today's top stories as well as political news and entertainment. Owned by News Corp., FOXNews.com also offers live coverage of major news events, lifestyle tips and magazine style guides. Appnovation worked in partnership with Google to create the Fox News Candidate Tracker application. Developed using HTML5 and JavaScript, the web application allows users to track the scheduled campaign events of the 2012 presidential candidates for the Democratic and Republican parties throughout the year. Leveraging the Google Maps and Google Calendar applications, users can search by zip code and city and view the full day's agenda for both parties' candidates for a particular date. Settings allow for both or single party tracking and the ability to highlight "battleground states" on the map.
