Active Citizen, keep them honest We all read something in a newspaper or see it on the Internet and we either get mad or want to support it or vent about it. This app allows you to get the raw truth of a bill in progress or committee.you can look up who is on what board and get a phone # and make a call.I love it,best tool out there to keep informed.
Great Way To Stay Aware And Informed What an easy way to keep tabs on one's local Congressional representation. Takes all the drudgery out of monitoring legislation and legislators. A must for anyone with serious interest in the sausage factory on Capitol Hill.
I am excited about how easy this app makes it for me to actually get very involved in grassroot media politics during my retirement! I have one suggestion that would be helpful in setting up my account. I would like to see the "following star" indicated in the Senate and Representative lists. To make party level involvement easier to monitor. I haven't gotten it all set up yet, but I hope to sort my "following list" by party, committee etc. And then use group email for specific issues...Hope it will.
Best App Ever!! You can't trust CNN, Fox, or your local news anymore. They are all infotainment at best, and political party propaganda at worst. Thankfully apps like this one are now the fourth check/balance of governmental power. Thank you to the developers for your work and dedication to protect and preserve democracy, for free. I thank you and the country thanks you.
Works extremely well This app gets five stars even though it is not flawless. It may not show everything ever happening at all times, but it does a fantastic job at presenting very important information about the convoluted Gordian Knot we call Congress, and it does so in a way that is easy for the public to understand. That in itself is a Herculean feat.
Constantly Crashes Just like Congress, this app constantly crashes. 5 times in as many minutes. I think this would be a great app, only if I could get it to work. Uninstalling until a new update is released. Will use Vote Spotter for now.
* Unfortunately: we've had to remove the News tab. Google announced their API shutdown years ago, and there's no viable alternative.
* Fortunately: more context for votes. (For example, names of nominees.)
* New and improved source for photos of members of Congress.
* Updated district maps to be scrollable, zoom-able, and more stable.
* Dropped support for Android 2.2 (Froyo).
As always, please email all effusive praise (and bug reports) to email@example.com.
