What's New in Version 2.1
As a result of your great feedback, we've added two key features to Podium helping make it one of the best political apps available.
1. Follow topics - You can now follow topics of interest. Podium will inform you when new legislation action is taken on any bills that are related to your interest areas.
2. E-mail sign up - You can now sign up with you e-mail address. You are no longer required to have a social media account.
We also cleaned up some screens and fixed some minor bugs. We hope you enjoy the new release. More is coming very soon.
Awesome interface almost there
You have a really good user interface. I love the newsfeed and being able to follow representatives and bills. I wish your "my representatives" section was a little more defined. For example define what house each person is in rather they are senate representative. Would love to see my state representatives be included as well. For an example of how to do this well look at an app called "My reps".
Great interface, easy to use, clean design. This app has helped me stay informed on my local and national politicians, and makes me feel connected to the government in a way that wasn't possible before. Would encourage all who are interested in active, meaningful citizenship to give it a look!
Podium is a political junkies dream
If you are a political junkie like me, you will love Podium. It is very useful for staying informed on what your representatives are up to and for communicating your opinions on what is going on in this great country. And now with topics and email login, a great product is even better.
