Great site, worthless app
I bought this thinking I would get more from Politifact, sooner. You get less.
Go to the Politifact website in Safari and select, "add to home screen" from Safari's menu. You get something better than the app and save two dollars.
I'll consider my purchase a donation to a great news service.
Expectations not met
I was hoping to see more than one update during the first 70 minutes of the SOTU address.
Don't Waste Your 99 cents
Leans incredibly to the left! If you want the same old main stream Kool-Aid then buy this app.
