Subcommittees can be bookmarked, too, and have website links as well as membership ordered by seniority.

Where available, each bill has the official descriptions, current status, sponsors and cosponsors, list of actions, and subject matter. The full bill text is linked to Congress.gov.

What's new in version 17.1.4
17.1.4 Bug fixes. We fixed an issue where the data might not update in certain situations. Now, when the app is displayed on an iPad in landscape mode it will fill the whole screen.

17.1.3 Updated Cook Political Partisan Voter Index (PVI) scores for 2021.

17.1.2 Never has it been easier to follow what’s going on in Congress. In addition to our session widgets, which show when the House and Senate are in session, we add elegant, ground-breaking, new widgets for tracking individual bills and resolutions during the 117th Congress. We also add a separate widget option to cover all legislation you’ve bookmarked, which rotates every few seconds. Tapping on bill widgets takes you directly to the legislation on the app. Available on iOS and iPadOS.

17.1.1 Adds Communications Directors to the Staff section.

17.1 The Legislation section of the app has been completely rewritten. The front page of Legislation features the 10 most recent bills from the House and Senate as well as the ability to search a database of bills for the 117th Congress. Each bill page lists the title, when it was introduced, the current status. With your paid subscription, it includes active links to sponsor and co-sponsor pages within the app. Where available, information for bills now includes the full title, actions, and subjects as well as a direct link to the full bill text on Congress.gov. Best of all, you can follow each bill's path through Congress to President Biden's desk by bookmarking them like you can for members, committees, and subcommittees.
