App Description

govTracker is a News Discovery Tool designed to find timely news about US governmental organizations, and then discover new linkages between them and other topics of interest.

govTracker includes listings of US House, Senate, and Joint Committees, Government Agencies, Offices, and Departments, and Political Parties, as well as categories for Government Contracts and Grants, awarded and announced.

Using powerful object-based meta-data technology, govTracker news results are not only highly targeted, they can be easily cross-searched against a variety of other news "objects".

This ability to construct accurate, instantaneous groupings of news articles can bring to light "hidden" relationships you may not have been aware of - it is the essence of news discovery.

Possible groupings include:
-- World Regions
-- US States
-- Current Events
-- Industries
-- Business Events
-- Publications
-- Elected Officials

Traditional search engines force you to know what you're looking for before you start your search. In contrast, govTracker's news categorizations have already mapped out the deep unseen relationships, so you can quickly find what you need to know, before you knew to look for it. This is a significant advancement in search technology, now publicly available to you in the palm of your hand.

govTracker is powered by Llesiant technology, which is currently in use at federal agencies, the department of defense, congressional offices, and major US corporations and law firms - helping their staff to keep track of issues that matter to them. Now that power is available to you, to help you keep track of our government.

*** Independent Reviews ***
Dave Eaton, of the 1st Impressions Blog, tested and praised the iPhone version of govTracker:

"When it comes to govTracker there is just one word that comes to my mind: WOW!!"

"govTracker is THE must have app if you care about anything at all about what is happening within our government."

"Unlike almost all of the mainstream media outlets, govTracker is completly unbiased and simply provides you with the facts."

"Don’t let the price cause you to hesitate in purchasing this for your iPhone or iPad. It should be required for anyone registered to vote…."
