Good app but needs refining
I like the idea of getting people more involved in this way. However the app really does need refining in some areas. First, it needs to have the ability to separate votes out into different items on the agenda, topic areas etc. rather than just being in a list form.
Also, perhaps an ability to see MPs past votes, would be quite useful also. Maybe even an interactive chamber version for iPad! (Perhaps that’s going over the top).
But it just needs a little bit of refining, so it’s efficient and looks a bit more professional. However I can’t complain since it’s a good start.
Voting record can’t be relied upon
I agree with Skyedog123 - display of one Member’s voting record is unreliable. It appears to be chronological, but on scrolling down I find it jumping from 3 months ago back to the present time. On one occasion I found it changed its mind as to how the MP had voted, when displaying it for the 2nd time.
But voting record is the purpose of the app!
Great app, still room to improve
Would really like an update to allow you to get push notifications when a vote is had
