Du30 Daily App Now Available to Download

If you search "DU30" or "DUTERTE" keywords on Google Play store, you will be greeted by tons of related apps created by different mobile application developers here and abroad. On February 20, another Duterte-based app has been added to this pool both in the Google Play Store and the App Store, however, unlike the previous apps, this one was created and launched by the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) itself. So yes, this is the legit Duterte app you can download into your mobile phone right now. And it has a number of features that Filipino users will definitely enjoy and allow them to get engaged even more with the government.

The app is officially called Du30 Daily: The President Speaks which aims to offer a variety of services to Filipinos here and from around the world. One of the main reasons for this app launch was to battle a growing concern about fake news and misinformation. According Communications Secretary Martin Andanar, the app would allow Filipinos to connect directly to the government through the news and updates on the current administrations' projects, plans, and activities as well as on speeches of President Duterte himself through various channels like PTV, RTVM, and Radyo Pilipinas.

Filipino users will not only be able to read news and get updated on what the government's been up to, they will also be able to interact with it such as through sharing their thoughts on current issues, answering surveys and polls, interacting with fellow community members, and sharing the news to their respective social media account with just a click of a button.

Another helpful feature of the app is the ability it gives users to call emergency hotlines like 8888 and 911 to report crimes, corruption, frontline services that need fixing, and situations that need to be commended.

The Du30 Daily app is available both on Android and iOS platforms and can now be downloaded from Google Play and App Store.
