One of the best things about the app is that it presents the data in a very appealing way emphasized by The Post’s photo, images and graphics. The news is filtered to show only the important ones.

The app also has some other great interesting features such as “Fact Checker” and a “Candidate Tool”. The first app shows the various statements made by the political candidates and assesses their veracity.

The second feature, “Candidate Tool” helps users find out where GOP candidates stand, and stood before, on major campaign issues – such as health care, Afghanistan, etc.
