Introducing Congress in Your Pocket, Plus Edition, for the 115th Congress, First Session (2017). This discounted app requires new users to unlock the new Congress with the in-app purchase. Current users need to pay for the yearly update to get the new Congress that opened on January 3, 2017. The app loads with last year's Congress so you can get a sense of how it works and what is included.
No matter who 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. 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 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 (now featured in Education) on the App Store. Congress+ is updated every few months during the session, usually with new content.
Remember, they work on Capitol Hill but they work for you.
Our congressional apps have been featured by Apple ten times as a New and Noteworthy application, a Staff Favorite, America the Beautiful and in special Campaign sections.
