Introducing Congress in Your Pocket, Plus Edition, for the 114th Congress, First Session.
This is the second major update for this year's Congress, which opened on January 6, 2015. This version includes a completely redesigned interface for iOS 8 and includes all of the new members and photos from the November 2014 elections.
This app is on sale for $1.99 less for new users to unlock the new Congress with the in-app purchase. Current users need to pay for the update for the new Congress.
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 on the App Store. Congress+ is updated every few months, usually with new content, during the session.
Remember, they work on Capitol Hill but they work for you.
Our congressional apps have been featured by Apple nine times as a New and Noteworthy application, a Staff Favorite, America the Beautiful and in special Campaign sections.

Warning: Bait and switch!
I paid 7.99 believing I would get info for the 114th Congress. I got the 113th Congress-totally worthless info. Why would I ever pay for outdated info? In order to get the updated info I want, I have to pay even more $. This is a pretty blatant scam, don't waste your money. The sunlight foundation's app is better and it's free.
I just bought this app today and realized it is outdated. It has last year's Congress not the current one. And it wants me to pay to upgrade!!
