You just never know when and when and where U.S. baby name info might be needed.
Now, iOS users who need the info can access SSA material using a new app.
In the past couple of days the Social Security Administration has introduced a new iPhone app (it should also work on iPad and iTouch devices) that provides access to 130 years of SSA info that you can browse or search.
A “surprise me” button is available and you can also shake the iOS device to get info about a random name.
According to the iTunes App Store here’s what the the free app includes:
+ “Browse or search over 130 years of baby name data — over 45,000 unique names!”
+ “Save your own favorite names list and share them on Facebook, Twitter, or via an email.”
+ “View baby name popularity trends”
+ “A Trivia game to test your baby name knowledge”
+ “View government-approved baby and family related services and information”
