Democracy coming online...
This is it! I've been bummed ever since Visible Vote went away, but this takes the game above and beyond.
Push notifications that work, links to mobile versions of REALLY IMPORTANT CONTENT, and super-easy, super-fast UX and GUI. Now you can discuss bills with the full texts at your fingertips, and see votes as they're punched in. Can't wait to see where this goes.
Shut up and take my money!! And thanks, fellow citizen, from the bottom of my bitter, patriotic heart. This is a great foundation for societal political involvement. 🙌🙏👏
Engaging and Fun!
Although the app does have a few minor errors (occasional freezes mostly), it's still a marvelous app that's a great way to get involved with politics. The social aspect of it is great too..allowing you to share interests and ideas with others and see who agrees with you. It's informative and engaging and you just can't help yourself to check it once in a while to see what's new.
Good idea, lacks execution
Vote on bills aside your congressperson? Great idea! However, recently there have been too many errors that won't even allow you to do that. And once you are unable to do the most basic thing, other issues pop up. Like it won't let you see how your congressperson is voting or how to contact them. It doesn't give stats about how people using the app are voting. It is a very general experience. Won't even let you pick which party you identify with!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
