Election 2016 Map
By Zentropy Software
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Quickly check possible 2016 election outcomes by changing states by touch from red to blue or vice versa and seeing the electoral college results. Zoom in on the map to make changes more easily. Two scenarios can be saved, or the map reverted to the 2012 results. Show friends what you hope (or fear) will happen.
Examine electoral college results from 1972-2012. Did you know that Carter won Texas, but lost California in 1976?
States can also be set as undecided or leaning Democratic/Republican.
Tap states to change their vote. When the map is zoomed, touch the background to toggle display of state abbreviations and electoral votes. Please note this App is meant for you to assign states how you think they might go - it does not automatically download projections (based on reviews, there seems to be a little confusion about this). The "Current Map" buttons on the flipside of the App save the current map in the given scenario - they do not load data. The "2012 Results" and "Load Map" buttons do load scenarios into the map. When new projections are released, this App will be able to download these.
What's New in Version 3.0
- Results of the 2012 Election
- Ready for the 2016 Election
- Support for the larger display on the iPhone 5
- Updated state information
- Bug fixes
I like that this app has an interactive feature and the ability to control the electoral landscape. You can play with different paths to 270. My only issue with this app is that there has not been an update since the last presidential election (2012). Even just once a year between cycles is all that is needed.
Hours Of Enjoyment!!
Hahaha excellent! Will it be Clinton?! Will it be Trump?! I appreciate the historical data which saves me from jumping from wikipage to wikipage to study past election results. It encourages n challenges me to thoughtfully consider the demographics n perspectives that may influence voters in a given state.
I do however wish that there were an option that would allow me to type in a name for the candidate myself, instead of choosing one from the scroll-down menu. That way I could do, HRC, Sandman, Rubot, CruzShip, T-Rump, or some such demonym.
But eh. On the whole, I positively. Love. It. Tysm.
Useless waste of money
Wanted to explore possible outcomes. This app made that too hard. Save your 99 cents.
