I love this mapping system I have learned so much from this app about the states just browsing It has also brought up so Many memories about from places i have traveled over the years Thanx for being more than a map app Zqsoul                 Love it
DOES NOT OPEN UP Downloaded app but it will not open Crashes every time I try to open it Maybe because Im not running v5 currently on 433 Hope they ca fix this soonlooks like it would be a heavily used app for me if it would work     Doesnt Function
Please update for IOS 7 Call it Assembly Love the app              Review
This is what every citizen has been waiting for Government beware now you cannot hide                 Great
This is one of those hidden gems It removes the feeling that legislation is too hard to influence too confusing and writing legislators too hard All that is made easier with this app If I were a legislator Id want my constituents to have this They would write me more with better knowledgeRemember though it is all about state level process not national legislation                 It just helps me know more
Great to have this info all in one place First load of images can be a small touch slow but not too badMakes it so easy to stay informedLooking forward to see how the app expands So much potential                 Great app
This is fantastic Talk about making our government more transparent                 Everyvoter should have access to this
This is a really welldesigned app for tracking state legislation legislators etc Intuitive interface streamlined presentation and all the info in one place                 Terrific App
I am a huge fan My state is still in process but I am really impressed Having such information made so accessible means that I am exponentially more likely to email my legislators now                 Fantastic
This app provides great insight and well designed however it is very buggy but if it is worked on a little more and marketed more I think the majority of people would find this app useful        Excellent potential app
Bills dont load for PA     Where are the bills
Got the app in hopes to keep an eye on my local State Assembly but cant due to the app not opening up Instead it just crashes repeatedly Hopefully there is an update soon to fix this     Keeps Crashing
There are enough errors that the app while a terrific idea just is not useful My comments to the app developer have never gotten a response so maybe there is no app supportI found photos assigned to the wrong legislator to two different legislators to different parties to being listed by current and former office held to legislators listed by nicknames as well as by more formal namesThats just the names Then there are current bills listed as from the current session even though the legislature is not in sessionSo what can I trust with this appNo way to tell Nice premise but poor execution lack of support        Minimalist
Needs to display relevant information better For example splittinghaving federal and state representatives     Nice idea bad execution
This app is the best I have ever seenpacking extensive updated legislator info and legislative info into an easy to use intuitive single app Even has legislative district maps with map satellite or hybrid views                 This App is AWESOME
This app blows It will not show bills in the watchlist much less anywhere else for the state of Virginia Waste of time     No bills
This is a wonderful app that will keep you politically informed and up to date on your elected officials love or lack of love toward personal freedoms                 Great App
Back to 5 stars with iPhone 5 updateVery well thought out Super simple UI Developers really did a great job Ive been waiting for a political app like this Nothing in the app store comparesPush notifications letting us know of any updates to our watch lists and new bills in whatever categories we choose would be great              update iPhone 5
Before I downloaded this app getting a picture of whats going on in my state government would have seemed like a highly tedious research project Badly designed government websites yuck With the app its not only fun and easy but positively addictive All the information I could ask for about the committees legislators bills and the relationships between them are at my fingertips The interface feels clean and fluid You can even see the top campaign contributors to the different legislators delightfully subversive Bottom line give this a try it will make you feel empowered                 Every American should know about this app
The app is well built and contains tons of useful details However from the point of being useful to an active citizen I wish this had more summarylevel info and lists of notable legislation rather than just showing all of it together              Well put together
The app works as advertised Give it time to load the information                 Great app
This is a great App but I cant seem to link the apps on my mobile devices that I set up online at open statesorg They wont synchronize at all and its incredibly frustrating and limits the Apps effectiveness           Sync from App to Account
This App will undoubtedly increase your awareness and interest in local government It lays out districts and describes representatives clearly As political junky Ive never come across a comparable centralized location for all of his material                 Wonderful App
This is my goto app for staying up to date on local politics And its great to see the bugs being worked out with each update                 Fantastic
Wonderful idea and execution will be relying on it much in the future But at least in New Jersey has some flaws Every state senator and assemblyman is listed as Independent It lists 0 bills dealing with Drugs I but found drugrelated bills including adding Salvia Divinorum spice Cannabinoids to Schedule 1 banned drugs in the Health sectionFix those types of things and its an easy 5Star App              Great but still needs a little work
I was very surprised by ow well this app works I prefer it much more than the nightmare that is my state legislatures website                 Slick
There are a ton of resources out there for tracking the federal government but Ive never found a comparable solution for state government I hate to admit it but before I found this app I had no idea who my state government representatives were It really is a great app that has lots of useful information packed into one convenient package Thank you                 a valuable resource
