Hot Doc: Congress App for Your Smartphone

hot docAlthough this app is not created by an agency of the government, it provides easier mobile accessibility to Congressional information!
The Sunlight Foundation has a great app to make Congress accessible for you on the go. It is available for iOS at http://congress.sunlightfoundation.com/ios and for Android at http://congress.sunlightfoundation.com/android.
The Android version is divided into these sections:
*         People (Representatives and Senators)
*         Bills
*         Votes
*         The Floor
*         Hearings
*         CommitteesBecause of the way that Congress itself chooses to disseminate information the public, bill information and vote information can be delayed. Although it is much easier to have the latest Congressional votes at your fingertips instead of digging to find them.

The People section makes it easy to add a Congressional delegation to a tracking list. For each Member of Congress you can do the following:
*         Call their office
*         Visit their website
*         View their voting record
*         See their sponsored bills
*         View committees they are a part of
*         See news from across the internet mentioning your member of Congress.
