WASHINGTON, Dec. 30 (UPI) -- The Federal Election Commission Friday released mobile Web applications it says will allow easier access to U.S. campaign finance data and FEC activities.

The beta release is meant to run on devices using iPhone platforms, the FEC said in a release, adding many of the features also will run on other platforms.

Full versions for other mobile devices will be released later.

"By optimizing our data for mobile devices, we are making it possible to access the wealth of information available through our Web site in a more convenient manner," FEC Chairwoman Cynthia Bauerly said.

The series released Friday at www.fec.gov/mobile/ includes:

-- Presidential candidate summary information that allows drilling down for details such as receipts, disbursements and cash on hand.

-- A calendar of FEC meetings, reporting deadlines, conferences, advisory opinions and litigation.

-- Links to audio files of recent hearings.

-- The FEC channel on YouTube with instructional videos on campaign finance law and practices; and

-- A Twitter feed with FEC updates.
