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.
I think that this app is fantastic. It lets me bring out the political junkie in me and read about all the bills and things that are going on in Congress. I recommend this app for people that want to hold your representatives and senators accountable for their votes.
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.
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.
Informative and Interesting An excellent app that let's you track legislation of interest and your representative and senators. You'll also get to see more of the mechanics of Congress through votes and floor action. This app keeps you informed beyond the headlines of the news.
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.
* 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.
