This is a crazy good app. A must for anyone remotely into politics. Tons of info, indispensable for a political junkie like me

Superb app! A must for any US citizen who cares about what our Congress is doing (to or for us!). Developer needs to update app, though, so Yahoo News API resumes news feed for each member of Congress. [UPDATE: Developer is working on the "news feed" issue.]

Too slow to be of any real use.

Solid app
2011-11-23 17:22 ShaSly
Now I keep getting error "there was problem loading news feed". Can the developer care to help?

Now I can rip my Reps a new one at a moment's notice. It's like a newfound power right at my fingertips. This must be what it feels like to have super-natural power.

Nice App. Minor shortfall.
It'd earn one more star if it could determine my representatives by using my home address instead of my location. This is a mobile app. I might need my representatives information when I am outside my district.
2011-04-06 16:35 EssDeeZee
good app
looks good, works good, well done! Good job dev! request to dev: C-span integration would be great. But the app is good as it stands, thank you.

A great start.

Amazing app! Also glad that its free! Every American needs to have this installed on their device at all time.

Neat app but ability to save a set of districts/locations would make it much more useful. Think politics hub.

Nice quick access to you representatives contact information and news page. Committee information is missing, but not a big deal for me.

Great app easy to use. I found my reps by my location in 5 seconds
2011-01-06 00:57 RobertNeal123
So far it has been great. Waiting to see if it updates the new reps.
2011-01-04 19:49 Cjones269
Nice, but I wish the links listed in the tweet section were actual hot links.
2011-01-04 23:53 joeybowles
It would be significantly better if it had a search engine to filter the congressmen

2010-12-27 06:30 mikieAirmen917
Tools indeed!
So fitting that an app listing the names of our elected "representatives" is categorizied under "Tools."
2010-12-25 15:19 WW2PT
A very well designed and useful app.

Love this app, it has a higher approval rating with me than Congress itself. :-)

Very cool app
As a political science major, I find this app to be interesting, attractive, and useful. I especially appreciate that it pulls up committee assignments! It doesn't have all of my congressmen listed, though (RI). This might just be due to our past election though, so I won't dock points for it.

Awesome app. Gives you up-to-date data on your reps. @mtkupp51...maybe cuz you're new reps don't take office until Jan, like every rep in the USA.

Out of date data
Nice interface. It's still listing representatives that were not reelected in my state in the last election. I'm not sure where they are pulling the data from. I'l give it some time to see how long it takes to get current
2010-11-11 00:14 mtkupp 51
Very well done, and useful too! I never would have known where to find all that information - it's great being able to pull it all up so easily. Very nice.

make sure you enter this into the microsoft public sector / federal wp7 apps contest. bing "devfish federal windows phone contest" for info on it if you haven't found it yet.
2010-10-14 17:58 fatpelican2
Great, timely, app!
This app not only looks great but does precisely what it says it does...and very well! It will find all of your congresscritters based on your current location or other critiera, show their tweets and take you to any videos of them making promises they won't keep.
2010-10-15 18:40 Lednik
Cool idea. Seems useful if you need information on your senators and representatives
2010-10-16 03:15 MonkeyAtomic
Nice app
I liked this app. I love the video integration. I also like the sites you can link off to see things like how often they vote in lockstep or break with their part. Useful information in trying to figure out if they deserve another shot. . . generally, I say throw them out, but that's just me. This app gave me more information to be able to help convince others to throw the B@#$#@ out.
