I’ve been using Sunlight Labs’ “Congress” app for the Android phone for a couple of months now and still enjoy the amount of information I am able to get from it. The idea is simple, but extremely useful if you want to track what your federal representative or Senator is doing back in D.C.

With this one app, you can track the following information on any member of the U.S. Congress:
- Read the latest bills, laws, and see what bills were recently voted on.
- Find members of Congress by using your phone’s location, a zipcode, a last name, or a state.
- Read tweets and watch videos from members’ Twitter and YouTube accounts.
- Reply to a member of Congress on Twitter from within the app, using your own account.
- Read the latest news about them, using the Yahoo News API.
