Source: Roll Call

House Minority Whip Steny H. Hoyer, D-Md., announced Thursday his office has launched an app that details floor updates and provides insider information on the latest developments.

“Today, I’m proud to announce a new app called ‘Whip Watch’ that will be a great resource for our Members and staff, while also making the House of Representatives more open and accessible to the public,” Hoyer said in a statement.

“By downloading this app, any American interested in the day-to-day workings of the House Floor can receive the latest updates and news in real time,” Hoyer added “It is an important step in my efforts to make this institution more open and transparent, and I encourage Members, staff, the press, and public to download the new app today.”

The app is available for free on iTunes. According to its description, it pulls data from the internal website DemCom.house.gov, which is only visible to House Democratic staff, as well as the public site, DemocraticWhip.gov.
