Which First Lady Are You Most Like? There's an App for That

Which U.S. president or first lady do you look most like? There’s an app for that.

The White House Historical Association released an app called the White House Experience. It gives users a virtual tour of the White House and the president’s neighborhood. And it has some fun extras.

One of the most unique features is "the presidential look-alike." It tells you what percentage you match to portraits of U.S. presidents and first ladies. It's similar to the Google art look-alike app. 

It gives users a virtual tour of the White House including tours of the East Wing, Family Theater, Library, China Room and many more.

The app’s creators have worked closely with the staff of the first lady and spent almost two years creating the app, a release said.

“Since 1962, the White House Historical Association has published the White House Guidebook as part of our education mission inspired by Mrs. Kennedy,” Stewart McLaurin, president of the White House Historical Association said in a statement. “This app is the 21st century evolution of the Guidebook.”

McLaurin said she hopes the app will help a new generation of White House visitors learn about the building and its surroundings. A half million people visit the White House every year.
