An Android version of the Sunlight Foundation’s “Congress” app has been available for some time and now they’ve released a version of this popular reference resource for iOS. Hooray! Both versions of the app are free to download and use.

From the Sunlight Foundation Blog:

Now it is easy to learn more about your member of Congress, contact them directly and see their activities right from your phone. Follow the latest legislation, floor activity and even get a breakdown of votes with just a swipe and tap.

The Congress app has detailed and update-to-date information for every member of Congress. Quickly see their picture, get directions to their DC office address, find links to their website and social media, see a map of their district and a button to call them directly. You can also see the bills they sponsored and their vote record. Star any legislator or bill to quickly access them through the “Following” section. From there you can easily see the latest activity on the bills you follow and if you’re looking at a vote breakdown, the legislators you follow will appear at the top.
