Everybody has some sort of mobile application, including the Internal Revenue Service.
The IRS allows smartphone app users to get updates on their income tax refunds — and enter their e-mail address so that they can receive daily advice.
Apple users can download the free IRS2Go application at the Apple App Store; Android users can go to the Android Marketplace.
