Great App 5/5
Very helpful to stay current on the issues and explains both sides. Makes it easy to communicate with your reps and get you voice heard.
Lead by Liberals 1/5
If you want to move in with the liberals and share ideas, download this app. The staff responsible for this app couch their introduction of topics in the same manner as the mainstream media. There is a significant liberal bias.
Go to the developers web site and you’ll find they are made up of the following: journalist, former president of several colleges, lackey from the Clinton White House, a former Democratic Senator, the technology coordinator during Howard Dean’s run for President, and other liberals.
I am not the only one who used this app and ultimately deleted it because of the liberal bias. It’s a shame this app and its data are not run by a neutral entity. The concept is an excellent one, but the liberals are using it to push their agenda, which is the same as 0bama; ruin the USA.
Great APP to stay informed! 5/5
By grandma retired teacher
This is great APP! It tells you what Co guess is voting on. If you register, it links you to your representatives, so your opinions are sent directly to your reps. It gives both sides of an issue. It tells you how you rep voted!
I've been exposed to several legislation that I probably would have missed. This is a useful app for anyone interested in politics.
By beverly florence
This app is a venue for Leftist Liberals. For that I rated it a one. I was looking for an unbiased app to really see what our Congress and Senators were voting on so that we as voters could determine how well our Representatives were doing. This is just a bashing session against Conservatives. Would not recommend this app. If they would truly make it neutral site it would be a winner!
Good at what it does. 3/5
It does a good job of keeping me abreast of what my congress people are up to but I'd sure like it a lot better if it adjusted to my iPad position! It's aggravating to have to turn it sideways.
Wealth of information 4/5
Like knowing what's happening in the government and how my representatives are voting.
Rename to CRASH! 1/5
Feels like a windows 95 app for iPad
Handy app very useful.
Issues since last update. 4/5
Since the current update after posting a comment the screen that shows your comment shows nothing but blank lines instead of text. Otherwise a truly great app!
Such a valuable app! 5/5
Having issues brought to my attention that I otherwise might not have known about AND being able to write my elected representatives so easily about those issues makes this an indispensable app!
Wonderful non-partisan source of info 5/5
This app is wonderful source of information on legislative issues that affect Americans. I like how users can select which issues are important to them and receive updates on related actions.
Very biased 1/5
I was looking for an app that simply gave straight unparsed updates on what my congressional activity, without the rhetoric, spin, or talking points. Instead I get news framed with strong liberal bias akin to huffpost or cnn.. The comments are also 90% radical leftist urbanites. The Die hard Pro-antifa anti-trumper kind. Comments that defend MS-13, and blame Houston for Harvey because "climate change ppl fur reelz!!" The people on this app push the limits of moronic reasoning. I won't be wasting any more brain cells or phone battery for the sake of this terrible app.
Love it 5/5
By And mm lol
Everyone should use this
Love this! 5/5
I'm a college student and I love how informative this is. I love that they show both sides of issues and arguments and that they encourage us to contact our representatives! I feel much more up to date and knowledgeable thanks to this app!
One of the best on the market 5/5
They cut through the bull and give facts about bills, politics and related news. I don't know of an app that's comparable. I use it almost everyday.
Every American would benefit from having this app.
Remove Edit Comment Feature 2/5
The ability to edit what you write should be removed as it is currently abused. People will post will one thing to gain agreement and push their comment to the top of a page, then they will edit it to push a certain agendacl contrary to what they initially wrote knowing that it will be at the top for everyone to see. This essentially breaks the comment section. If someone edits their comment, all agreement votes should be lost, or the ability to edit should be removed all together.
A hares'a breath away... 3/5
Awesome app in theory but it has a confused blocky design and just plain incompatible with iPad (the text displays off screen)
Countable holds everyone accountable 5/5
Like the application for its attention to details regarding the currently government activity in congress.
The summary, the sponsorship, the info on how your rep voted.
The ability to send your comments to your representatives and share with others.
They also cover executive order, changes to past legislative and executive orders, and current affairs which you can also provide input on to your congressional reps
So there is no reason for anyone to be uninformed on what's going on with your government activity.
Like having a congressional staff in your pocket! 5/5
By Dave Land
Just a few years ago, you could get away with doing a little reading just before the election to prepare yourself to vote. If you did that, you were more informed and involved than probably 90% of voters.
With the 2016 election, that all changed: we need to stay connected to our elected representatives in Washington and locally more than ever before, or who knows what trouble they'll get us into!
Nothing I have ever found even comes close to Countable for keeping me appraised of the issues and votes of our time. It's like having your own congressional staff right in your pocket!
Best Political App 5/5
I am able to see the issues and read the particulars. Then I can immediately contact my reps to tell them how I want them to vote.
Not sure if my reps and senators see it 4/5
By Beatrix the great
At the last town hall she never heard of countable. Also lately have to close out the app after commenting because there isn't a return button anymore. But it keeps me up to date on bills so that's good.
Great resource! 5/5
Great resource for anyone who wants to keep up with what Congress is doing. Apppreciate the plainly written thumbnails of bills and use the comments to broaden my views on them when I need that ,and even when I don't. Grateful for the support of my political activity and the ability to link to my reps. I've posted much Countable information, and have recommended Countable many times. It's a terrific app.
It is now political 1/5
They are pushing an agenda now. To bad. I liked it at first.
Political Engagement Made Easy 5/5
By Zen Grey
This app seamlessly connects you with the issues and your representatives. It also does a phenomenal job in positioning the issues objectively by providing both the arguments for or against any legislation or policy points. It's comprehensive, agile and easy.
Great App 5/5
Great way to keep up with what's happening in Government and to contact your Reps!
Like this app a lot 4/5
It helps to keep me current on issues and bills. Also it is easy to follow my representative and senators and to contact them.
Know what our legislators are doing 5/5
This makes the work of Congress and the Senate so much more transparent and understandable! You also get to see the unvarnished opinions of people from across the political spectrum on each issue, get to weigh in - and to have your representatives informed of which action you endorse. This does not cure all ills when it comes to politicians' accountability to constituents, but it does quickly show how their work is directly relevant to all of us and make it easier to be heard. From there, the next step is yours.
By Nick name taken2034
This app is the easiest and quickest way to know what's going on in Washington. I really like reading the comments of other people.
By Has a birthday tomorrow
I love exercising my right to participate in local government!!! And this app makes it INCREDIBLY EASY
Love Countable 5/5
It provides me with a balanced and factual description of issues and bills, allows me to em express my opinion to other users and to share those opinions with my representatives. I don't think I could manage without it, as understanding politics and has become so very important now.
Politically Correct 5/5
Countable is the best way to stay engaged in local, national, and international political operations from your mobile device. I appreciate how Countable makes it easier to interact with my representative and create a discourse with my fellow users on issues of interest. Thank you Countable.
Yes, Indeed. perfect. 5/5
Finally, a way to feel connected to the elected officials that appear to live in another kingdom in far, far away land. Can submit comments directly to your Congress Representatives and they will acknowledge they have received. However, it is a generic bulk response. Also, you can see the intelligent responses from regular American comrades and know that there are more people like you who are seeking a voice in this Country. Also, it is a great tool to be informed of all of the proposed bills and to see the results of bills that were just votes on.
Excellent App 5/5
This app is an excellent resource for stating up to date on policy and politics. The app also makes communication with your representatives extremely easy.
It is a easy connection to your legislative team.
Easy to use, fairly unbiased, great information at your fingertips.
A great app for the want to be informed.
Great app to communicate you voice. 4/5
A great app to communicate your opinions to your representatives. And keep up with what's going on in Washington. Be cautioned as it often presents issues with a liberal bias.
App Worth Having 5/5
I have enjoyed this App every time I use it. It makes me feel I am involved in our country's democratic process on demand.
The only other comment I want to say that the low rating of this App received from people that might not have understood the intent of the App and/or have not spent enough time to learn how to use it.
Great app 5/5
Everyone should download this app really helps you keep an eye on what our federal government is up to if everyone paid attention things would be much different
Resist assist 4/5
Countable helps me track what is happening, gives me basic info and a place to express my opinion.
Pretty Good 4/5
I like the Countable app. I like that info is in given in laymen's terms, so individuals don't have to slog through legal-ese to try and figure it out. I like that info seems to be straightforward and unbiased. It seems a few times something may have had a liberal slant, but I have learned how to address and work through it. I know what I believe and stand firm and won't be swayed by a liberal agenda. Continue to provide unbiased info and straightforward facts. I have received a great number of responses from some of my senators. While the response is appreciated, most seem 'canned.' A few responses seem personal. I understand they get a lot of correspondence, but when the response is canned; it seems to lose effectiveness and meaning for me. How my senators interact with me and how serious they consider what I say does matter when it comes to the next election. I am glad Countable has made it possible that attacks are not possible among those of us who post reviews. Of course, it might be interesting to have a dislike option on responses as well. I'm inclined to think many polls are biased and ineffective, so some calculations of the 'like' and if a 'dislike' option is added might yield interesting results and perspective as well.
Great app 5/5

This is a great way to share ideas and reach your Congress person. Brings us all the current political news and information so you can post to Congress with the facts. Use it every day.
Love this app! Indispensable for busy people who want to stay on top of the changes in Congress! 5/5
Easy to use, with up to date summaries and links to in-depth information, as well as options for directly contacting your legislators about issues that affect you. The comments and opinions of other Countable members offer an opportunity to see issues from different perspectives, and help to broaden my understanding of the issues and stimulate my interest in the political process. The only communication between members is through endorsing their comments. I have found it helpful to Follow members with whom I disagree even if I cannot endorse their opinions. This limited commenting structure is very effective in creating a version of a more civil discourse. I think users would get the most from it by reading opinions with which they disagree and following those members. The structure also permits commenting on the posts of others without directly contacting them. Using this app I find I understand more fully the reasons why those with whom I disagree hold the opinions they hold. I am improving
my own ability to communicate and clarify my own opinions. I receive text and emails from my representatives so I know that their staff, if not them personally, have noted my concerns. Most replies I receive include the legislator's explanation of their viewpoint of the issues and why they are supporting or not supporting the bill.
I'd give it 4 1/2 stars. 4/5
Overall I was very happy with this app, until the last upgrade deleted my ability to opt out of sharing. That takes away my freedom to choose.
That said it's a great way to have your voice heard by your representatives.
Stay on top of what this administration is doing 5/5
Countable is a great way to understand key congressional votes, and send your opinions to your Senators an Representatives. Makes you feel empowered and that they know you are wstching how they vote.
much needed app 4/5
i love countable- it definitely helps you stay on top of the issues and makes communicating with your representatives easy, but i have one minor complaint- if i get a notification and click on it, the corresponding badges should go away- you shouldn't have to scroll back to the notifications page to click AFTER you've viewed & acted on the related item.
It gives you updates and information that the government is trying not to pass
Excellent service 5/5
I really enjoy using countable to stay up to date with what my politicians are doing. This makes it really easy to contact them and helps show the benefits of voting yes and no on various bills.
Good way to start getting information 5/5
I'm clueless about SB and HR bill and have not known how to follow our policies. This app def lets me get a glimpse. I'm super happy with it. It's a start.
