About this app

Introducing Congress in Your Pocket, Professional Edition, for the 117th Congress.

With your monthly subscription you will get updates over-the-air for changes in members, staff, and committee assignments. Note: the app loads with this year's Congress so you can see what we offer but it won't updated without a subscription.

OVERVIEW

This app is intended for people who work in the media, government relations, political professionals, and activists who need to have the very latest updated information on Congress.

CongressPro offers all of the vital information you need to work with, lobby, or cover Capitol Hill. Learn all about who represents you in Congress, contact them in Washington, follow their campaigns and challengers, follow their social networking pages, and see their YouTube videos. Share any link in the application via email, Facebook, or Twitter. Take downloadable notes on all of your interactions with member offices.

I've used Congress Pro for almost a year. I can honestly say that I use it every day. Yes that includes weekends. It's an invaluable resource on my phone that saves me a lot of time by not having to go to various other resources for the information I need. With what is going on in our country today, this is a tool everybody needs to have! The app is priced so that just about anybody can purchase it and get regular updates. Try it out. You will not be sorry!

Update 2: Thanks so much for the updated review. FYI, we respond to EVERY email and review! Update1 : Super weird. Please send us an email at info [at] congressinyourpocket.com and we'll help triage from there. Original: Thanks for your note. Please make sure that you purchase the subscription so the data is up to date.

Legislation page is just a redirect to Congress.gov. News is just a news feed from Politico and Politico Playbook. They want $0.99/mo. for updates; otherwise, the app appears to go out of date, eventually. Save your $10.00. They don't appear to do much for your money.

Hi, thanks for taking time to do a review. The directory is updated daily and the 99¢ per month funds our ability to hire folks to do just that. If you are not seeing updates, please let us know. The news feed is connected to POLITICO's Congressional daily newsletter and it's pretty great. We are working on substantial legislative upgrades.
