Whip Watch is a product of the Office of House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer. It is designed to help House staff, the press, and the public better follow the latest developments from the House Floor. The app uses data from both DemocraticWhip.gov and DemCom.house.gov, which is the official intranet for House Democratic staff (it is only available within the House of Representatives firewall).
Please send any bug reports, questions, or feature suggestions to WhipWatch@mail.house.gov.
Whip Watch 2.0 includes user interface improvements, a new live voting display and other new features. Stay informed about voting and added-voting days with a new gavel icon in the upper left corner of the home screen. This version includes several usability fixes: push notification device token management for more consistent connectivity, more descriptive section header text and better home screen icon spacing.
Ratings and Reviews
Bringing Congress into the 21st Century
Really glad Hoyer's office released this app. It's useful to Hill staff and people around the Hill - but even cooler is how it opens up some of Congress to the public!
As a relatively new staffer, I am amazed at how far behind the Hill is with technology. This is the right direction and I can't wait to see what's next!
App does a great job helping staffers do their job and making Congress more transparent to the public. Its simple, works well and provides important updates. Big fan.
Nice Design, But Lacks iPhone 6
Nice app with nice design for Hill staffers. But conspicuously lacking optimization for larger iPhone 6 and 6 Plus screens, even though they've been out for 9 months and this is a brand new app.
