Ratings and Reviews

Mixed feelings about the update


The update has improved the look and feel of the app, added some nice features, but as I've played around a bit there's some annoyances I have: (1) User submitted issues seem poorly handled - Between the subject line and stance described, it's often unclear what the "support" or "oppose" means. If I swipe to "care" is that different as well? Several I read are just complaints someone has on their personal situation. It would seem better served to have discussion or comments on issues to be relevant. And a "flag" so these can go through some staff review (it wouldn't appear there is any)? Issue (2) Representatives - Bring back the how my representatives voted feature, this was a great tool to view in one place how my representatives voted on specific pieces of legislation, I miss it. Issue (3) Why can't I see or change the Interests I'm following? I deliberately didn't set many issues when created my profile, am frustrated that I don't have this option. Issue (4) Ability to change poll answers...I get why this was taken away, but can't you find a way to just make it harder to change (force a reason, jump through a few options)? I answered a couple of polls that were awkwardly worded and discovered that I inadvertently answered opposite of my intention (relieved they were opinion polls and not issue polls!)...annoying.

Needs a few more features

The 1 & True WhiteKat

While in general this is an interesting and needed app, there are a lot of questions and design issues that need answers. For one many of the poll questions, should have a button you can click for more information on the question. I keep seeing a poll about adding criminal background checks to firearm sales, but what is the difference between the one they are suggesting and the ones already required? Half of the poll questions are vague like this or need more info. A simple button to click on for a more detailed explanation would help not only the user but the ones using the results to get more accurate answers. Likewise there should be a button for undecided in many of these questions, support or do not support are insufficient for proper analysis on many of the issues. There should also be an option to print the articles in app for those of us using printers on our devices so we can read and share things later if needed, or links to where articles that are not original, that are very obvious to click so we can go to the source when it comes from outside the app.

Needs More Users


It's not the fault of the app but there needs to be much more participation in the polls. Some states are barely represented (why isn't Alaska included?) with few participants in several states. For scientific polls to be accepted there is a statement about the demographics of those polled such as age group, education, sex and income bracket. I don't think any of that is done here. There are several states with low poll numbers that consistently go against the states red or blue character. I would also like to know more about how the poll questions are decided and by who as some use language that dosen't seem neutral.

I believe this is the first attempt at this sort of app. Wouldn't it be great if it lead into voting at home electronically. In spite of my concerns, this is a great effort.
