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.
