I'm thrilled about this app. My one complaint is that when I have been looking at a specific bill or topic and hit the back button we are taken all the way back to the front page. We really should be able to go back to where we were so that we don't have to scroll through to where we left off. Otherwise this is an amazing way to stay informed and active in the political process.
I think it could be improved by showing results of how many people voted yes or no in graph form. And even graphs splitting things up by regions would be useful. Because honestly I doubt our representative and senators pay attention to the emails they get from this when you vote. Maybe graphs showing a summary of results would be more efficient in communicating our wants to our representatives.
Used to really appreciate the simplicity of the app and its ability to quickly and easily communicate my stance on issues to our elected officials. Recent updates have made it all but impossible to do this obvious, advertised role, preferring instead to hide it under news feeds, layers of issue tabs, etc. Needs either to revert to its previous format or get another ground-up redesign.
If it were based on the service alone, I would give Countable 5 stars, easily. The app needs improvement however. It is not intuitive. It is difficult to get where you want to go in the app, or find it again if you want to get back to it. All notifications lead to the home screen, rather that what you are being notified of. I will continue to use it because of how easy it makes it to reach my representatives.
The app has several usability issues. The website version is much more user friendly than the app. It can be difficult to find upcoming bills when the front page is filled with news articles. But the major issue is when I click on a notification the app says I'm not logged in. When I go to log in, my only option is to log out. Very frustrating.
If this app is going to give notifications, then when I click on it it should go to the item in the notification not the front page, makes use difficult for finding information. Update 02/09, even worse now. Lost my issues and now front page is weeks old data. Down from 3 stars
