Interesting New Political App!

NEW POLITICAL APP

Technology continues to amaze. Just yesterday we heard of a new app that tells the user which super PACS are funding a particular political ad. With this new app (supposedly to be out soon), users will be able to hold their iPhone up to an advertisement while it is playing, and the Super PAC App will draw on third-party data to tell the user which super PAC is running the ad. It will classify the super PAC’s political leaning, and identify the claims the ad is making. The app will then link the user to related articles that could help the user verify the advertiser’s claim. A great way to keep well-informed about the candidates and who is supporting them. Here is the article where you can check it out:
