Clearly developed by a Democrat This is NOT an unbiased app. I question it's validity. However, it is a good tool to use to check facts out for oneself. But I'll give it an extra star for organization, and another star for the plethora of information. Also... Adobe Air? Really?

Text is too small I enjoyed reading this in the last presidential election, but now I can barely see the text.

Needs option to change font size Don't see any option/setting for doing size. Text is so small it's basically in readable.

Need to fix the app This app does help when trying to fact check political parties, but the app does not work on the Nexus 6, wish they would fix it. The font size on the Nexus 6 is extremely small, unable to read the content.
