At the moment, CapitolBuddy includes all the legislator info right in the app. It makes load time easier and the build process simpler. But it also means that when something changes in the legislature, you need to download the update from the App Store.
Mike Moon from district 157 and Josh Peters from district 76 were recently sworn in. And as soon as their info was updated on the Missouri House website, I got the info for the app. Now there’s just a few days wait until it is ready for download, while Apple approves it.
Next year, this will change.
In CapitolBuddy 2014, you can expect the legislator info to automatically download and update within the app, no update required on your end.
Of course, the price will also go up in 2014. So try the 2013 version for only $2.99 today.
