“Among the most comprehensive apps for teaching civics is Congress+ by the Cohen Research Group. This amazing app offers all of the vital information you need to be an effective activist with legislators of the United States Congress.”

Washingtonian Magazine

“If you work on the Hill and need to meet with the Representative for the third Congressional District of Virginia but don’t know who that is, the Congress app (99 cents, or $9.99 for the Congress+ version) will supply you with a photo and every other senator and representative’s office information, Twitter links, and bios.”

“If you are an activist or just an interested citizen, Congress+ is indispensable … When I sent an e-mail through the Congress In Your Pocket Web site with a few questions about the app, Cohen got back to me within half an hour. He says his rule is to respond to every e-mail. Now that’s constituent service.”

“Congress an iPhone Fav: Congress is anything but hip, but an iPhone application highlighting the institution is doing quite well.”

National Journal

“Want to find a congressional office phone number or a Hill aide’s e-mail address? Review a bill or peek at a member’s Twitter feed? There’s an app for that. Several, actually. One of the most popular appears to be “Congress in Your Pocket” … “It’s quick, easy, and essential,” says Morgan Reed, a lobbyist for the high-tech sector. He says he loves the app for what it’s not: another spiral-bound facebook to be lost, stolen, or obsoleted every time a member or staff person leaves.”

Oh, My, Gov

“I’m going to do something unusual. I’m going to recommend a product for your iPhone or Blackberry. I’ve been using Congress In Your Pocket for a few months now. I bought it myself on a whim and it has been indispensable to me ever since. The app contains every member of Congress, their staff, key phone numbers, committee assignments, etc. It’s great for on the fly contact information for both members and staffers.”
