Very helpful! 5/5
By Dr. DDean
If you want to stay up with fast-moving political events--and if you want to make a difference -- this is the app to use. I found it a little confusing at first, but the developers respond quickly to my questions, and no doubt they are tweaking and improving it in response to user questions and ideas. I love it and am now using it daily.
Powerful App 5/5
I haven't spent enough time perusing it yet, but it is admirably objective and it's commitment to providing supporting sources is impressive. It will doubtlessly continue to improve as it is used, but even as it is now, a five star review is well deserved. It's biggest weakness at the moment lies in timing, as you often seem to be asked for your vote after it has already been voted on. But for enabling you to be an informed citizen, it couldn't do much better, and we all know that calling our representatives directly is more effective anyway. Five stars!
Stay Relevant! 5/5
A great way to be informed and know what your elected officials are up to.
Already have a response from my congressman 5/5
I've only been using the app for two days and I already have a response email from one of my congress members. Love it!
My New Favorite App 5/5
Easiest way to stay up to date on current legislation. Make your voice heard, and hold your representatives accountable. Want to be more involved in our democracy? Get this app now.
This is a great app and it is great that you can voice your opinion. What I would like to see the ability to respond to a comment. Thanks
Biased slant 2/5
Informative. Let's you see what is coming up for a vote in the houses. Gives you a chance to provide your opinion to your representatives. Gives a summary once voted upon. My only complaint is the app is biased and seems to have an underlying political agenda.
Simple and helpful 5/5
I use this to see who my reps are, and when they're voting on something. I use it to see how they voted. I use it to call and message them about their votes. Simple, helpful app.
Great Idea- Bad execution 2/5
By CT Fam
I had really high hopes for this app being able to clearly see what's going on with my representatives. Unfortunately, there's nothing very easy about this app in terms of trying to accomplish that goal. Very convoluted way that they've laid out the information… Difficult to get to the representatives contact information… very difficult to see exactly how each of the representatives have voted… And most importantly, there is no feed as to what is in front of the representatives prior to their voting!
Jeanne Brumbaugh 1/5
I just tonight installed the app from apple. It looks quite good except right off the bat when I was scrolling through the how to use the app, it crashed. I logged twice more and the app immediately crashed both times. Not happy. Need help -- anyone know how I get help?
Fight the power 5/5
This app is an amazing tool to keep you up to date and informed on what is REALLY happening on Capitol Hill. It helps you keep in constant contact with your representatives so that you can use your voice to KEEP THEM IN CHECK! Don't let your voice get drowned out by lobbyists! Speak up! Be heard! Be loud! Fight the powers that be!
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.
Excellent app. We really need this!
Very helpful!!! 4/5
Good tool in today's times!!! Thanks!!!
AMAZING APP 5/5
By Civic Engagement
I love, love this app. I try to stay up to date on issue because I believe it is important to be an informed and involved citizen and this app lets me do exactly that. At the least download the app just for the notifications. Absolutely the best!
By Landonsocnala bdicnso
Everyone needs this app!
Easiest way to be involved 5/5
I love how simple this makes the act of telling your representatives how you feel! The app is so well designed and pretty, it makes being a good citizen a lot of fun!
Perfect for introverts 5/5
What a great idea! I am able to make my voice heard on issues without phone calls. The app is well designed, too.
All the details you need 5/5
Follow the day to day workings of the government including details on every bill and how your representatives voted. Also send your Congress people feedback. Get involved and let them know what you want.
Won't load properly 1/5
This app won't load properly. I used email instead of Facebook to set up because I don't want this app accessing all my data and tracking it.
Good tool for contacting Congress 3/5
By Realist 09
I use this app nearly daily. There is a definite bias in their writing about bills and their viewpoint of political figures and issues facing America. If you can ignore that and actually do your own research then you will love the ease of being able to add your voice and express your opinion to your elected officials.
Awesome - participating in government made easy 5/5
Love this app. It is a very useful too for staying informed on, and acting upon issues that matter. The 3 best aspects for me 1) timely notices about what's coming up for a vote; 2) ability to directly submit comments to my reps on important legislation and issues; and 3) ability to share opinions with the countable community, and to share the issues and may opinion with friends via FB. Great app.
Take Your Power Back 5/5
Everyone who is dissatisfied, confused, or exasperated with how things are unfolding in the United States needs to download this. The team behind it is very credible, and gives the power back to the people in an unbiased, well researched, and intuitive design. It presents issues in an easy to understand, and critcial way. It makes the nails on a chalkboard process of getting politically involved, a matter of swipe ability. It's presented so amazingly! Did I mention it's sexy to look at too? Best concept and execution of harnassing the power of social media, in a very, very, long time!
I like it 5/5
By I h8 the new app
It keeps me informed
Vote Yea or Nay - Just Like Congress - Love it. 5/5
Simply the best way to stay informed and get involved in the process. Everyone needs to have this app. It should be automatically loaded on everyone's phones and their start page on their browsers. What's more important than knowing what our elected officials are doing and giving them our input?
Easy and informative 5/5
Nice and easy way to stay informed. I can stay informed and voice my opinion.
A Very Important App 5/5
I love this app! Easy to use. Very fair and unbiased reports of vital governmental issues. An extremely useful tool to see how one's representatives are voting and to communicate with them about your opinions. Probably the most useful and important app you will ever get!
Fantastic tool! 5/5
Love being able to keep up and voice my opinion to my reps. With what is happening now in politics it's more important than ever!
A different twist on news 5/5
This app is by far my favorite way to get news from the hill.
It's not just about Election Day. 5/5
Countable is the easiest and best way to understand what's going on in Congress. I've learned more about what my reps are up to from this app than any civics class ever taught me.
Essential App 5/5
This app is great. Sends me an email every day that my representatives vote. Let's me know about upcoming votes in Congress. And let's me say how I would vote. And a lot more I haven't checked out yet.
It took me 5 minutes to get up to speed w what Rep. Nadler did at work today.
Be informed. Be heard. 4/5
Good start. Way better than cursing the state of things and doing nothing!
A step in the right direction! 5/5
I just completed the election quiz and was happy to see my rep really is on the same page!
Pretty good 5/5
Lets you "vote" on legislation, gives a sense of participation. Makes you think about the bills -- not all clear-cut.
We need this! 5/5
By Cape Ann Finance
Perfect way for us to stay involved. The summaries are so important!
A great tool/resource 5/5
By William Benton
This is a fantastic resource for a crucial time in our nation's political history.
I look forward to seeing it evolve further; I am still navigating it and discovering its full potential.
And I hope more people catch on.
This app is excellent. Incredibly informative and I appreciate the snapshot of what you're YEA and NAYing about.
I love this app! Easily contact your representatives and have a glimpse into what is actually happening in congress.
Wish it would find my representative 3/5
Love the idea. But, it only pulled up my senators based on the zip code. Wish that it would use your full address or give you an option to pick which representative is yours.
By Yud In Lala-land
One issue, it only lists my senators as my representatives. Where is my congressman?
Needs to be totally current 4/5
This looks really good and very promising but im not seeing several important things that have come up in last couple of days that required action.
Need more apps like this. 5/5
Show do you not have ACA as an issue 2/5
By Done widdit
Also, enough with Ben Franklin chastising me for not commenting. Your app is slow and not very current.
The best way to get involved with politics. 5/5
Every citizen of the United States should use this app. It is the best way to discuss bills and issues from a nonpartisan source that provides great summaries, extended detail, and the general argument for yay or nay for each bill.
Virtue in tech 5/5
With the ever expanding number of apps on our phones, it is increasingly difficult to find ones that add to us rather than takeaway. Mobile games, social media, micro utilities all at best provide a welcome distraction from the day to day. Countable actually adds to you. It takes something crucially important and unbelievably uninteresting and makes it quick, clean and fun. Our country needs citizens that are paying attention, our country needs public accountability for politicians, our country needs a better informed electorate. Countable is the best attempt I have seen so far at doing just that. Sunlight is the best disinfectant, and Countable fights the shade. Love it.
This app is wonderful. I'm so glad that it's free, as it should be spread far and wide! Thanks to countable for making the overwhelming legislative process easier to keep up with!
I finally know what's going on in Congress 5/5
Love this app!
No other app in the market that does this 5/5
Wish more people would use this.
Fills the Need to Hold our Reps Accountable 5/5
We needed a platform that enables for open and fair dialogue about the actual issues. Excited by its potential.
This app has helped me stay up to date and involved in politics better than I ever could through any other source. I love it. Keep it up and don't change
