New iPhone App Delivers Audio & Text of JFK's "Ask Not" Inaugural Address

April 29, 2009 -

For JFK fans or those with an interest in history, a just-released free app for iPhone/iPod Touch delivers the full audio and text of President Kennedy's January, 1961 inaugural address.

The best-known line from that speech, of course, is:

And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.


Comments

Hmm

I'd like a Canadian version with Brian Mulroney's "you had a choice" rant and Chretien's "I put pepper on my chicken" dodge.  Heck, toss in Trudeau's "just watch me" and it'd make a nice little Canuck political soundboard.

How long before soemoen wants it yanked claiming it dishonores JFK?

Can we get one that'll deliver the full audio and text of his famous speech on the 2nd amendment too while we're at it?

C'mon David, you know you want to.

WonderkarpRegion locking annoys me. I cant tell you how many Japanese games I want to to play but need to own another console and learn japanese to play them!05/29/2015 - 5:13pm
MattsworknameThis kinda thing is why I have a very negitive view on things like region locking and games not being released universially. it creates problems like this where the game gets reduced as a result .05/29/2015 - 4:41pm
Andrew EisenNeither will the 3DS. Wait, WHAT?! http://www.siliconera.com/2015/05/28/samurai-warriors-chronicles-3-does-not-include-nintendo-costumes-in-the-west/05/29/2015 - 4:33pm
Andrew EisenSamurai Warriors Chronicles 3 will not include the Nintendo-themed costumes when it hits the Vita in NA and EU next month.05/29/2015 - 4:32pm
Wonderkarpthe brilliance of the Wii U is they could offer 2 games in 1 package. Tablet/pro controller controls, and then a flipped game with WiiMote. Add a master quest too it too05/29/2015 - 4:18pm
Andrew EisenTwilight Princess would be my favorite if it didn't have a few notable design issues. But yeah, those few things aside, it absolutely trumps Ocarina in most every way.05/29/2015 - 4:11pm
WonderkarpTwilight Princess is my favorite Zelda. Its a legit sequal to Ocarina, enhancing everything Ocarina had, and I hope there's a HD Remaster with gamecube controls. Make it Nintendur!05/29/2015 - 4:08pm
E. Zachary KnightI borrowed Wario World, Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess. So I am going to try to play at least one of them this weekend.05/29/2015 - 3:52pm
MattsworknameIm gonna be splittingmy time between blood borne, the witcher 3, tokiden, and some pc games.05/29/2015 - 3:34pm
DocMelonheadIn fact, if the whole campaign is to make fun of Zoe Quinn, Leigh Alexander, and Brianna Wu, then I'm not going to stop them.05/29/2015 - 2:30pm
Wonderkarp@andrew game parody idea. 50 shapes of grey05/29/2015 - 2:30pm
DocMelonheadBut I highly doubt that they encourage "death threats"; even they know that gone too far.05/29/2015 - 2:29pm
Wonderkarpi mean, i could create a a random twitter, tweet #blacklivesmatter along with terrinle racist death threats to somebody and be and youd claim the tag was a harrasment campaign by that logic. no. its a bigger issue than a random hashtag05/29/2015 - 2:28pm
DocMelonheadIf by Harass as in "Mock and Ridicule", then yes, GamerGate encourage that along with everyone else that made fun of others.05/29/2015 - 2:28pm
Andrew EisenNeed to finish Wonderful 101. Need to start Bayonetta and Pikmin 3. Yep, lots of stuff to play.05/29/2015 - 2:23pm
Andrew EisenKarp - I've been playing through New Super Mario Bros. 2. Also Shapes of Gray and OlliOlli. Really want to go back and finish Xenoblade Chronicles and Last of Us but probably won't have time for a bit.05/29/2015 - 2:22pm
Wonderkarpi never said it was "gamergates massive harrasment campaign". i mean, truth be told, crap was slung at her long before gamergate was a thing.05/29/2015 - 2:21pm
