For participating in government
▪ Countable is by far the most popular political app at the moment. It publishes a weekly guide to upcoming bills in Congress, decoding political jargon with thorough explanations. A “Take action” button lets you contact lawmakers to tell them how you want them to vote.
▪ Voter functions like Tinder for finding the political candidates of your dreams. Users swipe right (“yes”) or left (“no”) in response to questions about their views on various issues, and Voter suggests a match. A chart indicates where your beliefs place you ideologically, and the app provides links to news sources so you can seek more information on the issues.
▪ Congress is “the no-frills, workhorse app” of the group. Though its dense technical language can be off-putting, the app makes it easy to call your representatives in D.C. and to follow developments in both houses.
