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 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.
Runs fairly smooth My only complain is that it won't stay in the same menu that I want it to stay in. For example, I'll go to the committee tab and I'll click to the Senate, then look at a senate committee; then I click back and it goes all the way back to the main menu. Perhaps there could be a fix for that in the near future?
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.
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.
* 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.
