App requires full Register subscription to view ANY content.

App looks to be simple & well designed, but non-Register subscribers, or anyone who doesn't want to pony up $10/month, have ZERO access to content.

The app description says we need to pay for "FULL access." That is misleading. There is NO access without a subscription. Please be straightforward that downloading the app is useless without a steep monthly fee.

Really well done! Very useful!

Wow! Really great job on this app! News, very extensive candidate profiles, events calendars all in one place- love it!

A few things for feedback:
-A option for text/pop up alerts would be awesome- breaking news/new events scheduled/etc
-an option to email event info/news would be great too, or tweet/fb it
-twitter and Facebook info in the profiles would be useful too (maybe you could even add a feed to see what the most recent things the candidates said?) This also goes for DSM Register political reporters too
-in the bios: campaign office info/staff contact info & twitter handles
-as far as the events list, a visual way to see them on a state map would be awesome (per day, per candidates, with pins to click for more info)

Overall, really great and very useful app for those who love the Iowa Caucuses and want to stay in the loop!

Excellent Resource

This enabled me to stay up to date with where the candidates where speaking and later, what they had said. I was able to attend some important moments in the Iowa campaigns because of this app/ information ! I look forward to 2012 !
