iPad version looks good now!

If you’d been using CapitolBuddy on the iPad, you might notice that it’s really just a blown up version of the iPhone. Well not anymore! Now opening the app on the iPad has the interface you always wanted: a side menu of legislators that displays all their info in a large window to the side (see image below). Enjoy the new update!

Keep notes synced across devices

In the latest version of the CapitolBuddy, the app will sync your notes when it is launched. And you can manually get your notes by clicking “Restore”.

Imagine this:

Then you head to lunch and want to talk something over with Rep. Grace Diaz that Rep. Fox had mentioned. So you pull out your iPhone and launch CapitolBuddy. It grabs the notes file you just saved from your meeting with Fox and when you open his profile on the phone, you see exactly what you had before.

You can then email the note to yourself, your colleagues, or Diaz with the click of a button.
