This free app is available across all mobile devices including iPhone/iPad, Android, Blackberry.
"With the launch of WhipCast, people across the country have more ability than ever to participate in the legislative process. Through this dynamic, one-stop-shop for legislative information, people can access the bills their elected leaders will vote on each day, view real time floor updates, and share all content on Facebook and Twitter. Two years ago, House Republicans committed to make Congress more transparent and accessible to the American people, and this innovative tool from the Majority Whip's office is an effective and smart step forward."
