5 Calls-- YES, Finally!! 5/5
i've bought a bunch of postcards and started mailing them to the Senate and the president and Sean Spicer etc. but this makes it so much easier and it put you right in touch with the people who matter the most. Whoever dreamed this up is a genius!
Fantastic app 5/5
5 Calls makes calling my representatives incredibly easy. The app asks what issues are important to you, then gives you word-for-word scripts to call representatives. It literally can't get any easier or more satisfying to be involved in the resistance!

The first call to Congress can be awkward. 5 Calls makes it less awkward. Even if you don't use the script, the summary has great info, and the immediate connection to your legislators makes it so easy. Try it!
Excellent - it works, it's easy! 5/5
Excellent tool for making your voice heard.
A suggested improvement 4/5
Yes this is easy to use and I appreciate it. thank you. however I would like an "other" option on the call list. When we call on an issue not listed we need to be able to enter with that issue was
Has made this so easy 5/5
By Password forgetful
As I cringe every day Trump is in office and I see our democracy threatened I feel I must do something. But what? 5 Calls has helped make advocacy for the issuers that I find important so easy.
First but far from last time I use this handy app! 5/5
So easy to make an important call on a timely basis! Read about repeal of Dodd Frank in R-G this morning and remembered I had installed the app. Within seconds I reviewed the talking points provided, and was sharing them with a staffer for Peter DeFazio, who dutifully tallied, commiserated, and promised to pass my thoughts along to Peter.
The tool for our time and it works. 5/5

I have been using 'Five Stars for months, I use it as a template for daily calls, e-mails and faxing MOC's. I have logged over 200 calls and use it 7 days a week. Thanks for RESISTING;;;
5Calls is easy to use 5/5
I had been using a different service to call Congress since the election, but it was just one call, and I didn't always feel enthusiastic about the issue. Also, it was hard to keep track of what to say because it's a short text and a voicemail-- my mind would go blank when I called. Then I found 5Calls, the background info and a script for the call were all there on my phone screen. I still say what I want to, but the script helps me keep on task. Plus, if I get a busy signal, there's an easy way to get the other office numbers. I identified a few issues I cared about and my first time using, I made 7 calls. It's great.
Love this app! 5/5
I have been doing all this work on my own before finding this app. It has saved me countless hours on researching what my issues of the day would be each morning when I called my reps. THANK YOU!
A great political action tool 5/5
In this time of political chaos, with so many issues coming at us daily, this app makes it easy for the user to choose from a list of issues, get background information about each issue and phone numbers for the appropriate people in government to call, based on where you live. It also gives precise House or Senate bill numbers, when appropriate, so that you can be clear when you call about the exact piece of legislation that you're commenting on.
You then note whether you made contact, left a voicemail or couldn't get through. I use this app frequently and recommend it.
Simple way to keep reps accountable 5/5
By CKL LA
5 calls is a great way to stay on top of what's going on and keep your representatives accountable.
★★★★★ Great tool for civic engagement 5/5
Super intuitive. Takes all the guesswork out of contacting elected officials and keeps you apprised of the issues.
Five Calls makes citizen lobbying easy and fast 5/5
My husband and I have made hundreds of calls using this app. I am impressed with their succinct descriptions of bills and actions. I just put my call on speaker phone and read the script. Very fast and easy.
By Charlie from MA
So easy to use and so helpful. Well done!!
Brilliant but bad 3/5
The app does not allow for ease of movement between pages.
5 calls helps me stick to my activism 5/5
I call my mocs every other day, but five calls gets me to the right number for all of the other specific issues that keep coming up. Easy to use, feels good, love.
Great idea for people that forget 5/5
By Best mail account
I love this app because it reminds me in the morning to do my 5 Calls then I have all day to get it done. The app gives me specific assignments that are necessary and important at the time for my party in my country. I think it is important for all of us to take advantage of this application.
Great resource for current issues 5/5
By Rumi Skye
Great resource for recap of current issues and their specific impacts--Makes me feel empowered and part of a real democracy to make my calls and coffee in the morning. KUDOS and appreciation to creators and maintainers of this ap!
I use it every day 5/5
This app does not only facilitate quick and easy phone conversations with the offices of my members of congress, it also provides me with information to use when writing faxes and post cards. I hate making phone calls and 5Calls found a way to help me get over that and make my 5 calls per day!
This Is An Action App! 5/5
Download this NOW! I just started using it and I called all my representatives in just minutes! It works perfectly and I'm thrilled to find a convenient way to make my voice heard. Thank you for this important resistance tool!
Use it every day 5/5
Want to make a difference? This app is amazing.
Great stuff! 5/5
Awesome tool to fight the resistance. They give you everything you need right down to what to say to your congress person should you choose to use it!
Great idea! 4/5
By Lady Jessop
America needs active citizens more than ever now and this app is a great way to do that! I use it at least once a week to contact my local representatives. I do notice that it no longer includes my congressional representative, only Senators. Why is that? Can you fix?
Also an independent investigation of Russia's interference in the 2016 election is no longer one of the issues. Any plans to put this issue back in the app? It's a pretty important one seeing as that is what got us in this political mess to begin with.
WEBSITE DOWN 3/5
The entire purpose of this review is to let you know your website crashed this morning. 502 Bad Gateway. Please fix! I use your website every single day to contact my MoC.
Great concept, wrong information 2/5
Great concept -- I really wish I could like it. This app doesn't give you your REAL congressmen or senators.
After putting my zip code in, I was presented with an ex-senator and no contact for congress. I do not recommend using this app until they are able to provide accurate information.
Excellent tool for resistance and change! 5/5
This app makes phone activism easy. I often call my legislators before I even get out of bed in the morning- a satisfying way to start the day. Summaries of issues are brief but thorough, and scripts are great. Thank you!
Information is power! 5/5
This ap is great to keep in touch with what is going on in our government. It explains the issues. It provides talking points and contact information for your representatives and senators. Easy political activism.
Best way to manage the political swirl 5/5
I've been using the app for a month and a half, and I can never thank the authors/contributors enough!! The app is the best way for me to manage the political swirl!! The authors/contributors make the information concise and relevant. Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!!
Resisting made easy! 5/5
I love how easy this app makes it to get in my daily resistance! I don't like to think on my feet when I'm talking on the phone, so their scripts are super helpful, and the app makes it easy to get my phone calls in when I'm on the go.
This is super helpful!!! 5/5
And just look at all the improvements in the update – thanks so much to the app developer(s)!
Makes it so easy. 5/5
It makes it so easy to call my Senators and Congressman. Keep up the good work!
My favorite political app 5/5
This app makes it incredibly easy to stay engaged in the democratic process. Accurate, relevant, and up-to-the-minute info and great convenience and tracking features have made this app indispensable for me.
Great way to get involved 5/5
Easy way to help out and make progress with political issues. Congress is listening to the people. Having this app makes it SO easy to call congress and ask them to vote on bills. The app lists the bills that are about to be passed, and lets you click on each one and then call your congress representative to complain. It gives a short sentence or two about what to say. I just read the sentences and then the assistant to the congressperson records my call. The she sends the list of calls to the congressperson. If there are a lot of calls about a bill, the person will vote your way! Without making a call, the congressperson has no idea how to vote, or what's scary and worse: they will vote however the big business lobbyists persuade them to vote.
We've needed this for so long 5/5
By Juice Cats
It's never been easier to be informed on the issues facing congress and to contact your representatives. 5/5 would recommend
Great App 5/5
By 5 Calls
This is a great way to contact your Congressperson on all the current issues. Gives you a call script, a way to track your calls and all the the hot issues of the day.
I second what Buttery Dog said on March 9.
I am very sad 5/5
This app makes me very sad because every time the topics refresh, "My Impact" returns to 0 calls. It's a great app, but I would've really liked a cumulative counter to feel good about. Now it's the same as using the website.
Great #resistance tool 5/5
With so much going on so fast in politics, 5 calls makes it easy to prioritize concerns to address, provides the necessary information, and provides appropriate politicians and committees WITH THEIR PHONE NUMBERS to call. It also makes it easy to record completed phone calls.
We need more apps like this. 5/5
This app is a great start in changing to world around you. While it doesn't have all of the issues I would like to see it teaches you how to get started contacting your reps. And knowledge is half the battle.
I never rate apps but.... 5/5
By Nortwoods Girl

Biased to Democrat party 1/5
By Aces Highpoint
There are no options for siding with any other party than the Democrats. Poor option.
