Obama '08 - The Campaign comes to the iPhone

Congress+ is a Great Reference App for Capitol Hill
Congress+ by market research company Cohen Research Group is a great reference app for the politically minded user or for anyone working in US politics like party officials, activists, political professionals or lobbyists. Unlike other apps like Elections or Campaign, Congress+ is a more professional application, which provides information on all members of congress, from their photo, name, title, state and party affiliation to their official bio, their office address, their capitol staff, their committee assignments as well as their website and contact information. Furthermore the user gets to browse campaign news (Google) and use links to campaign websites.
Campaign Reflects the Political Divide
Campaign by app developing company Gorloch Interactive is a source of news articles focusing solely on the presidential campaigns of Obama and McCain. Before getting started the user has to provide their political affiliation, choosing either democrat, republican or undecided. This can later be changed in the iPhone settings. Having to make that choice suggests that republicans and democrats require different news sources, which is unfortunate but true.
Elections Needs Improvements to get the Vote
As one of many apps focusing on the 2008 presidential election, Elections shows interesting potential but falls short of being truly useful and informative. Brought to the iPhone by developer Magnificent Library, the app provides lists of candidates for presidential, US congress, gubernatorial and state legislature elections.
