New app places politics at your fingertips

Of course you can pull out your phone and stare at cat videos all day, or you can check to see what your friend’s kid’s cousin is eating for lunch. But you can also find out how your elected representatives voted on issues that are important to you, and contact them immediately to tell them how you feel about it. That’s the idea behind the new app iCitizen. Justin Hinote of iCitizen explains how mobile technology meets civic engagement. Photo Courtesy of Facebook
