The Justice Department on Monday announced a new app for the iPhone that will let people search for jobs at the department.

Justice said the app — DOJ Law Jobs — was designed because people need to read about department jobs while they're on the go.

"Mobility is the future," said the department's Chief Information Officer Joseph Klimavicz. "The Department of Justice is committed to changing the way citizens interact with government information. We are tailoring our mobile strategy to align with the needs of American citizens."

Another official said the app "directly aligns with President Obama's digital government strategy aimed at delivering better digital services to the American people."

The app is available for the iPhone, and versions for the iPad and Android equipment will be up and running "in the next few weeks."

According to the app, there are more than 200 volunteer internships now open, and just one paid internship. There is one opening for an entry-level attorney at the department, and 50 openings for "experienced" attorneys — about half of those jobs are in either Washington DC or California.
