Ratings and Reviews

Good news source, amateurish app


Roll Call is a great way to track news about the U.S. Congress and other branches of federal government. But the app looks and feels like the result of a high school coding assignment. Headlines and captions are routinely truncated, with no way to get the missing text. The top story is promoted with an annoying popup that frequently contains a picture and NO text. (I have yet to see it display a complete headline.) Photos and graphics are dumped into articles without scaling, so you only see about 10% of the whole thing. This might be amusing if the app had been designed as a guessing game. But in a news app — where the unscaled images mean lots of scrolling to get to the rest of the article — it's the opposite of amusing. Stick to the website.

Read fast before it crashes

Mr. Ichiban

Worth the quick glances at the political news. Come on, who is working on this app? Do you know that it crashes on almost every story? Fix it!

Great App fo Political Junkies


There's nothing quite like Roll Call, the grand-daddy of the Capitol Hill papers. There's more than enough news here to satisfy the most demanding political junkie's craving.

And you CAN remove the badges--I just did! All you have to do is go to the Settings--know what they are? And you can toggle on or off both the app badge and the section badges. You can also set how long the articles remain available.
