You know it’s a sure sign that politics is going digital when political parties come up with their own apps.

PAP4SG

As the name suggests, this is the app to stay up to date with everything the People’s Action Party is doing. It’s not just for the elections, although at this point of time, everything is understandably centred around GE 2015. Besides news updates, you’ll also be able to read the party's Manifesto, see who the candidates are for your constituency, and follow their Twitter stream.

Heck, you can even take a photo of yourself and plaster it with PAP stickers!
