Interesting app

:
It's nice to see where the money goes.

4/5 stars

Data great, UI meh

:
I like having this information for when I am bored. The interface well, why go to all the trouble of making a html page that fakes a segmented table view? Would have been a more pleasurable experience if they used native interface elements and just just streamed data to populate them, but hey non-proft organization has gotta save. I am not always near internet when I wanna read this kind of stuff (like on a plane) so some sort of caching would help. Also that would probably help speed up the load times. Overall I am complaining about the UI kinda kludgey but what is really important is the data, and I found having having access to it on my phone was just great.

3/5 stars

Great App needs an update

:
I would rate dollarocracy higher but they need to do an update for the 112th Congress. Honestly if they charged a couple dollars or more (<5) I would buy the app if it got updated quicker.
