Kudos to a great app.

Not only is this app hilarious, informative, and well written - it’s intuitive.

Kudos to the devs on this one. It’s a simple, easy app - the entire experience struck me as much more intuitive than many apps I’ve seen and been a part of.

The flow of the app is great. You’ll have no problem making it almost perfect if you want to spend a little more money putting some UI lipstick on it. Never the less -

The NSA toggle on the last page is absolutely under rated.

Disingenuous at best

These articles and videos are meant to inform the public, but it's done with endless fear mongering. A lot of these points are interesting and under reported, but saying the government is responsible for my debt or drones are hovering above me doesn't meet the parody/comical threshold for me. I love that they want to get more young people involved and aware of government spending, but they are far off the mark when it come to being hip, trendy, ground breaking, or in my opinion nonpartisan. To hide being this one sided, you have to be a lot mor cleaver.

The App you need to see!!

This app helps anyone understand the practical implications of many political agendas. I don’t understand why the criticisms.. This app shows the truth of government mismanagement.
