Should Governments Build iPhone Apps During a Recession?
In addition to the directory of departments and services available, there's also a second app available called the Utah Professional License Lookup, allowing a quick and convenient way to check on the professional license status of doctors, nurses, contractors, accountants, and any other professional offering services that require state licensure.

The iPhone is also a very locked-down, proprietary system that is far from universally accessible. A universally accessible web interface could be more appropriate.
