Had some trouble updating but followed the instructions and now alls great App developer was unbelievably responsive when I had trouble                Great app
App wont update Crashes when you click unlock on new data for 113th Congress Get it to update and its 5 Stars easy    Wont Update
App is fine but I dont understand why I had to pay money to update to current information When I installed the app had out of date info and I had to pay extra money for current info Poor form    Update scam
This app is an amazing resource and the support for it is awesome If you have questions just ask for help I had issues with the new install asked the app team got immediate guidance App is upgraded and working fine despite my initial misunderstanding as to how the upgrade works Thanks                Great App Great Support
This app is a collection of lots of very useful legislative information while it is true much of this can be found on the web for free what makes this App worth the money is it consolidates the critical information that you need if you are advocating or working on The Hill or trying to contact your Senator or Representative when you are away from you desktop which is most of the time for most of us these days 499 is very small price to pay for having all this information at your disposal on an iPhone or iPadI should also voice my opinion about the customer service it is simply incredible I had an email exchange with the CEO Founder Chief Customer Service Guru and I was blown away with the response time over the weekend Mike Cohen cares greatly about his customers and their experience with his productsthis alone is worth moneyIf you need information regarding Congress this app is for you                Very Resourceful Legislative App
This app is essential for anybody who is trying to follow Congress and work with Congressional offices With 535 voting Members in the House and Senate and thousands of staffers you need a resource like this if you are serious about getting in touch and staying in touch with Congress The app gives you great information on every Member of Congress including concise bios and contact info for Members and their key staffers The thing that amazes me about this app is how up to date it is Things change fast and continuously on Capitol Hill staffers come and go and change offices constantly and Members change also but this app stays on top of the changes and keeps you up to date It is very reliable Ive been using it for several years on my iPhone and now I have it loaded on my Mini iPad which is perfect a great size to work with and so portable I keep it with me at all times when I am on The Hill                Superb App Essential Tool Love It
Constant crashes clicking on Bookmarks causes crash but the big problem is no update for the 113th Congress    Not Updating
This is a GREAT app Use it all the time on the Hill Customer svs was VERY responsive when I had trouble upgrading to 113th version                Lobbyist
It should not take so long to update for the 113th Congress App is useless until updated    Why is the app covering the 112th Congress In the 113th
I wrote a cranky email when the 113th update was slow in coming And got an immediate response from the developer with useful info and an apology Great app and the human touch is nice too                Responsive
This would be good if it was actually up to date Hasnt been updated since 2013    Old info
Bought the new version of Congress on my Mac Thought it would automatically sync with iPhone and iPad I never got the option of okaying the meager 99 cost to upgrade Could not find the version number I had so didnt know if I had the new version or not Sent an email to Mike at their web site Had an answer back in less than an hour He gave a couple of suggestions which did not work With each problem I encountered I sent another email to Mike Generally within 10 minutes I had a reply Finally he suggested deleting the app on all devices and reinstalling That worked When I opened Congress on my iPad it gave me the chance to pay the 99 for the upgrade I did Then opened it on my iPhone and was asked for the 99 again I thought Id have to pay the 99 only once but for a low cost 99 twice was fine with me I okayed it and a message that Id already paid the fee and to tap a button to download on my phone for free Nice touch The app works fine on both devices and I am glad to report on the responsiveness quick thorough knowledgable and friendly support I got from the producers of the app                Great customer service
This is a great app I am a lobbyist and use it on the Hill all the time checking District maps senior staff emails bio Highly recommend                Great advocacy tool
This app is a great resource for anyone doing business in the legislative arenaI honestly cant do without it Support is over the top helpful                Capitol Hill essential
Visit this companys iTunes profile a bunch of apps the same data and all at different price pointsDO NOT BUY THIS APP    Scam
Now that the glitch with Apple regarding the 113th Congress update has been fixed this app is once again my goto reference for information on the US Congress Im impressed by the responsiveness of the developer and the temporary fix that he quickly implemented I wish all developers were as good Thanks Five stars                Excellent
I paid 799 believing I would get info for the 114th Congress I got the 113th Congresstotally worthless info Why would I ever pay for outdated info In order to get the updated info I want I have to pay even more This is a pretty blatant scam dont waste your money The sunlight foundations app is better and its free    Warning Bait and switch
I just bought this app today and realized it is outdated It has last years Congress not the current one And it wants me to pay to upgrade    Outdated
App developer is very responsive If you download and dont read the description with update info be patient as the developer is working within Apples parameters on updates                Great customer service
There is a problem with the 113th Congress update Please get it fixed I need it for work       App will not update
As a reporter on Capitol Hill Im a big fan of the Congress app and use it almost daily I initially had problems with downloading the 113th Congress upgrade but it works great after I emailed the app maker to figure out the problem Heres the response I gotThe update and the inapp purchase 99 for the 113th Congress are now available in the App Store At this point you should be able to open your app tap on the More section and see Upgrades where you can purchase Access to the 113th Congress listed Tap on that pay the 99 and your app will be unlocked and after it updates in front of you will show the new informationIf you dont see this please delete the app and reinstall it Once reinstalled you should see an invitation to purchase the 99 unlock If you pay it the app will update to the new Congress             113th Congress update
With the induction of the 113th congress the developers of this app are forcing current owners to essentially rebuy the app with a 99 in app purchase The app was not just solely The 112th congress before this it was and still is the US congress I refuse to pay for this update this is information I have already paid for Greedy move by the devs and they now have one less customer Absolutely pitiful    Makes you essentially rebuy the app
I love this app It is a lifesaver in my business I have most apps because I want themThis one I needI contacted the company about the 112thgot response in less than 10 minutes I have never ever had this kind of support from a developerIf anyone is interested in updating to the new Congress delete the app directly from you device Reinstall the appyou will not have to pay for it again Problem solved                The fix for the 112th Congress is easy
Good for quick reference Would be better if it included actual PVI rating and primary election stats along with general election stats          Useful
Just purchased this app and it is out of date Needed a 99 upgrade 499 is a lot of money to find out who the senator from Alaska is and I live in Michigan I need an app that will find my reps for me and make contacting them easy Not me having to search for my guy I could have looked him up found his web page and filled out his contact form Without paying 499 for the senator from Alaska no offense AlaskaDon    Not worth the money
This is a great app especially for those of us who have a need for it It does need one improvement The House and Senate are listed It would be very helpful to have the Caucuses listed and maybe commuters but def the caucusasCongressional Black Caucus andHispanic Caucus             Great App
After noticing the absence of my newlyelected Senator from the Congress App I contacted through the contact information listed the company to let them know of the missing information Mike the company owner replied immediately noting that the 113th Congress was not yet listed and the rationale why that had happened He provided me with a route to use in the meantime before I meet with my Congressional Delegation this weekI have been very happy with the app not being the political wonk that others may be in the limited capacity I use it I absolutely appreciate the time and efforts Mike and his team have shown in addressing my concernsAs an educator it troubles me reading a few of the reviews that people are complaining so vehemently about the performance of the app without seeming to have contacted the app creators Just as I encourage my students to let me know if they perceive an issue and the idea of innocence before guilt Id encourage everyone to contact Mike and his team if they encounter a problem or issue I realize our time and money is valuable but allowing for solutions to be created for problems we encounter and communicating those problems seems to be a much better use of our time and energy                Contacting the maker of the app goes a long way
I am always impressed by the personalized attention that the creators of this app provide On more than one occasion I have sent updated information or made suggestions and they have always been responsiveKeeping up with all the staff changes on the Hill is a perpetually challenging activity but I have confidence that the Congress folks are doing their best                Very Responsive
I work in Congress This app reflects laziness on the Cohen group Example Lists 3 senators from Hawaii 2 of whom are dead longer than a year ago This is all public info that they only need to organize Lazy    Years out of date wasted
like some others I was having difficulty getting the updatehowever 1 email to the company and I got an immediate call from the CEO who walked me thru the proper procedureheyIm a lobbyistwhat do I know about technology I now have VERY current info and find this app to be absolutely invaluable while walking the halls of congress                great support
Ive never reviewed an app before but this one is so great I had to review it As a Senate staffer I find this app invaluable having all of the information in one place is so convenient I use it almost everyday I dont like spending money on apps but this one was definitely worth it I recommend this app for anyone who works on the Hill or lobbyists think tank employees Executive staffers etc who deal with Congress                Invaluable
As a political consultant who works with Congress daily I can honestly say this is my most valuable app And the customer service has been exceptional through the transition into the 113th Congress                Most Valuable App
This app is not updated so it is likely to get you lost on Capitol Hill    NOT updated
This is hands down a five star app There was a little issue with the update and I emailed and received an immediate response and I was up and running with the update You cant ask for any better assistance or a better app for government information We would all be luckier if our government worked like the makers of this app do                Five Star App
No one wants to buy a congressional directory of THE LAST CONGRESS Its the end of March If I buy your app now which I just did I expect the 113th Congress info Or just charge six bucks instead of five and it wouldnt be so annoying    Just be upfront about the price
Where is congressman west This needs an update             Update
The app is phenomenal The reviewers below should have reached out to the developers because they were incredibly helpful in providing a temporary solution while the App Store review process stalled the update I love this app and couldnt do my job without it                Invaluable App
Have used the app for the past 18 months and it was the best thing since sliced bread The failure to update the information has rendered it useless Until the information is updated this app should not be purchased BUYERS BEWARE    Failure to Update
I use it daily and find it to be the most up to date and easy to use of all the Congress related apps                Great app
Congress is a musthave iPhone app for any savvy journalist in Washington DC All the information you need is there The interface is great There are no glitches                Musthave app
App wont update when I hit unlock it crashes    App wont update when I hit unlock it crashes
This might be useful if it was up to date However the list of congressmen is not current    Out of date
STAY AWAY FROM THIS APP Does not update as advertised For 29 it should darn well work correctly Cant update 112th Stay AWAY FROM THIS APP not worth it    NO UPDATE busted app stay away
Why did the 112th Congress show up and thus erase the information for the 113th Congress following the recent update You need to fix this ASAP Now the information is antiquated and incorrect    Back to the past
Cant purchase 113th Congress via inapp Also crashes if try to skip it I loved the earlier version but this one acts like it needs more testing before its released    Serious update problem
This is absolutely the best source of information about congressional members and their staff Maps phone numbers committee assignments                Problems fixed
Ive greatly enjoyed this app and am pumped for the 113th update The CIYP team was highly responsive when I had problems updating They walked me stepbystep through getting the latest and greatest in Congressional information Thanks to the team for their quick and detailed support                Great app and even greater customer service
Where is Ted Cruz profile Why did you remove Ted Cruz I will not purchased your app until you put Ted Cruz back on the lineup    Cheap shot
Why do the research when theyve done it for you The latest update had a few hiccups but the developer quickly fixed them Very responsive customer service Recommended                Great timesaver
I use this app all the time to look up information on congress members and electionsI had a problem upgrading the app so I emailed them They had great customer service told me just what to do to make it upgrade correctly If you have a problem with them email them                In depth details on congress
