This provides me the ability to fact check in real time what my elected officials and public servants are telling me and others.
I think the app is alright. It shows the total sum of money spent, but in no way breaks that down truly. You have to request further breakdown of everything. This leaves the data to be misinterpreted or screwed still. I hope it becomes more detailed in the future.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
