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.
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!
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.
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.
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?
* 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
