This app is incredible in today's world to stay focused on issues of government. No bias, no spins, just straight up facts. Who represents what District, who voted for what, and what each law is exactly. Gone are my days of going to social media or the local news for wordplay and dishonest headlines. This is all you need. Incredible! And no signup required! Just get in and go.
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.
Looks REAL Good I just heard about it from a Google Plus friend. It is open source and the project is hosted on github. My pro OSS bias is showing :) This is going to be very informative. I'm impressed. Some committees and related lawmakers fail to load but those in my state are SUPER easy to track and the app comes complete with all contact information.
I love being able to see what is going on. Improvements needed are 1) a way to follow certain politicians or your state officials and 2) a daily recap. In a perfect world we would also have access to more information on politicians we select, such as what they did that particular day.
Love this app! A couple suggestions for additional info to include in legislator profiles: 1. Full office addresses for DC and locals offices to refer to when writing letters (I never remember the zip coder) 2. Additional social media outlets (FB, instagram, etc) 3. Term ending date. Thanks again for this awesome app!
Good, but incomplete The app works well, but it could use some more features. I'd love to see a feature that shows popular/ especially important bills. These could be selected by views from app users, mentions in news articles online, or even handpicked by the developers. This is a great concept, but it currently isn't convenient for casual users who want a more succint summary of Congress.
* 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.
