INTRODUCING THE 113TH CONGRESS!
*** Note: Access to the current Congress requires you to "unlock" it with a 99¢ in-app purchase. The application is on-sale to accommodate this additional cost for new users. If you already bought the update, restore it in More -> Upgrades. ***
FEATURED IN iTUNES "CAMPAIGN 2012: TAKE ACTION"
No matter which party you support, you can have every member of Congress in YOUR pocket or on your iPad. Use the app that tens of thousands of people who work on the Hill and with Congress everyday, as well as their constituents have on their iPhones and iPads.
This application offers all of the vital information you need to be an active and informed citizen between elections. Learn all about who represents you in Congress, contact them in Washington, follow their campaigns and challengers, read their Facebook and Twitter pages, and see their YouTube videos. Share any link in the application via email, Facebook, or Twitter.
While this app will be enough for most people, if you need over-the-air updates, separate sections for lists of committees and subcommittees, and well as the ability to share notes with your team, please consider our app CongressPro in the App Store. Congress+ is updated every few months, usually with new content, during the 2013-14 sessions.
Remember, they work on Capitol Hill but they work for you.
Congress+ has been featured by Apple as a "New and Noteworthy" application (February 2009), a "Staff Favorite" (June 2008, September 2009), and in two other sections, "America the Beautiful" (July 2010) and now in "Campaign 2012" (March 2012).

Problems with this update?
If you have a problem with the update, please delete the app and reinstall it. You can also email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. We respond to every single one. We are fixing a bug with missing bookmarks. Bad reviews don't help you get your app working. We will.
How often is the information updated?
The data in this application is current to the time you unlock the 113th Congress. Again, the 113th Congress is a 99¢ in-app upgrade.
What's New in Version 9.7
Database refresh, new photos, and bug fixes.
Good for quick reference. Would be better if it included actual PVI rating and primary election stats, along with general election stats.
Out of date
This might be useful if it was up to date. However the list of congressmen is not current.
