Ratings and Reviews
Great app...a bit vague
First off I would like to say that I absolutely love the idea behind this app. But I did find that some of the questions about my preference on policy are a bit vague. I would suggest that specific terms be fully explained in detail before I’m presented with a polarizing “Agree or Disagree” answer option. Without the appropriate language and articulation of these questions this app could potentially be used to manipulate voter opinion and create even greater divide between voters. I believe it’s very important to agree on our understanding of words and their meaning FIRST before giving opinions. Otherwise words may turn into Orwellian doublespeak. Please fix this!
More information should be provided
There is a section of your profile that asks you to select stances on major issues. This leads to a quiz where you select disagree or agree with specific political stances.
***This app should provide information on what it means to be in agreement or disagreement with each stance. I’m relatively informed about political issues, but I need a refresher on some of these and there are a few I’ve never heard of before.
***This app should work towards ensuring their users are informed not just active.****
This isn’t hard to do, but it does require research so that the app can provide a succinct explanation of why each side believes what they believe and what their criticism is of the differing opinion.
Brigade is the best app I’ve used for reaching out directly to my representatives and expressing my opinions. The new Brigades, or groups feature, lets me put together a small group of likeminded friends who care about the same issues. Adding friends and sharing petitions makes me feel like I’m speaking with a megaphone and cutting through the noise, not just tweeting into a black hole.
