The popular blog that covers the Supreme Court, SCOTUSblog, released an iOS app yesterday. It provides mobile access to the same content that is available on the blog. It also provides push notifications of breaking news from the court. The blog’s announcement yesterday said that additional features and improvements will be rolled out regularly.

The app’s home screen shows the same stories that you see on the blog’s home page. A menu lets you narrow the stories you see to those that are categorized as “featured,” “breaking news,” “round-up” (a daily item that rounds up short news items), and editor’s notes.

You can also view the blog’s Twitter feed from within the app.
