It seems like there is an app for almost everything these days, it’s no surprise that there are a lot of them popping up before the Presidential Election. We sifted through and found the apps that we think will be most helpful for all.
If you’re still unsure about who to vote for this election, Voter will help you decide. The app lets you swipe through a series of yes or no questions about important issues this election. Don’t know much about what a flat rate tax would do for the economy? That’s okay; the app gives you general information about the questions as well as breaks down arguments for and against. After you answer all the questions, the app gives you a percentage score of how compatible you are with the candidates. The app is similar to Match.com, but for voting.
Worried about family members and coworkers that want to argue politics? Settle It lets you search issues you’re arguing over, gives you articles about the issues with a Truth or Lie meter that ranges from true, false to pants on fire (ridiculously false). Now you can have your own debate moderators in the palm of your hand. The app also features a Challenge where you can test your own knowledge of political fact and fiction.
It’s not always easy to understand all of the polling data when there’s so much out there. 2016 Map looks at all credible polling data daily and gives you an easy to use map of how each candidate is doing in gaining Electoral College votes. It also features historical data of what polls have looked like in the past year and the past decade.
Ever wonder what your State Representatives are doing? Countable gives you a short summary of bills going through the House and Senate, arguments for and against, how much they will impact you and how much that legislation will cost. You have the option to vote “Yay” or “Nay” and the app will actually send that information to your Member of Congress. There is also an option to start a conversation with others on the app or to share your opinion with friends on Facebook.
If you need to blow off some steam after a heated political debate, this app is perfect for that. Modeled after the popular 2013 app Flappy Bird, Floppy Candidate lets you choose a candidate to take through a series of obstacles just by tapping your screen. The candidates range from this year’s Presidential nominees to historical figures like George Washington and Ben Franklin. The app is sure to ease some tension before, during and after this year’s election.
