Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has become the first political leader to have a mobile app, developed for him to digitally connect with the citizens of the country. The PM himself launched the 'Narendra Modi Mobile App' on Wednesday.

People can access everything, from his biography to day-to-day activities, through the app.

"The application provides updates on the day-to-day activities of Shri Narendra Modi. It presents an opportunity to receive messages and emails directly from Shri Narendra Modi. There is also an option to contribute and earn 'badges' through to-do tasks," the PMO release said.

"Using the app, one can tune-in and listen to the various 'Mann ki Baat' editions of Prime Minister Modi, read his blogs, and get to know more about him from the Biography section," it added.

The app not only connects the citizens of India with their Prime Minister, it also provides a platform to look into "comprehensive information on initiatives and achievements of the Union Government, including an 'infographics' section," the release said.

The app has been developed for Android-powered devices and can be downloaded for free from the Android Play Store. After launching the 'Narendra Modi Mobile App', the Prime Minister invited people to give their feedback on the app.

Ever since Modi took over as the PM of India, he has embraced technology to digitally connect with the people of the country.
