In an effort to announce Romney's vice presidential pick, the RNC over-hyped its Mitt’s VP app claiming voters would be notified first of the decision before “the press and just about everyone else.” The app failed to alert its 200,000 users in time as the media broke the news of Paul Ryan joining the team. Romney’s team even sent out a press release to reporters informing them of the news, leaving those who downloaded the app in the dark until the following morning.
