There is absolutely no need to worry if a trip to Washington, D.C. seems like a tough task at the moment, owing to President Obama's second term swearing in.

Per reports, AT&T has developed a brand new app called Inaugural 2013 that has been made to live stream the beginning of President Obama's second swearing-in ceremony live. Obama's second inauguration, the 57th in the U.S. history, will now be the first to have an official smartphone app of its own.

"Don't miss a moment of the 57th Presidential Inauguration with the official mobile app. Get a front row seat at the ceremonial swearing-in with the app's built-in live stream, find events near you, and stay connected. No matter where you are, you can join President Obama and Vice President Biden in being a part of history," the app's official Google Play page states.

On Monday, Jan. 21, President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will be sworn in and will begin their second term in office. The Presidential Inaugural Committee launched the app for both iPhone and Android, and offers important as well as interesting features for those visiting the nation's capital for the big day as well as anyone watching from afar.

While the 2013 Inauguration app's main feature is the live stream of Obama's swearing-in and second inaugural address, it will also offer maps, schedules, a social media stream and other videos that users can access from their phones.

The Inauguration app will also feature maps of all the Inauguration activities in Washington, D.C., for those in the capital. The Verge states that the app will provide users maps of designated entrances and viewing areas in and around the National Mall, bathroom locations and even where to get something to eat.

"This inauguration is a celebration of the American people," said Steve Kerrigan, President and CEO of the PIC, in an official statement. "That's why we've designed our app to make sure folks across this country don't miss a moment of history. Whether you're in Washington DC or any other part of the nation, there are plenty of ways to be involved in the inauguration through this app."

Until the highly anticipated live stream starts, users who download the app will be greeted with photos, videos, and other inauguration-related content.
