With the current 2016 election as popular as the super bowl, we decided to revisit an app that might just help you walk away a winner.
Picking a political candidate can be an exhausting exercise.
The app is targeting the busy individual by bringing Tinder-style swiping to the political process.
It's hard enough to cut through all the spin and grandstanding so you can figure out where different candidates truly stand on the issues. But once you've done that, you'd still need a detailed spreadsheet to know what percentage of your own political leanings overlap with each presidential hopeful.
That's probably why lots of people just end up voting for the candidate with the most name recognition from their party.
The Voter app is targeting the busy individual by bringing Tinder-style swiping to the political process. It aims to make understanding the stances of the candidates as easy as answering a few quick questions on a dating app.
Here's how it works.
Voter presents you with a series of issues, which you choose "yes" or "no" on by swiping right or left. When you're done it checks your answers against data points of the candidates — like voting records, speeches, public stances, and finances. Then it tells you how much you agree with each candidate.
The Voter app is definitely one of our faves...
You get to swipe right...
It first shows you common issues.
If you want more information you can tap on the card...
...and it will show the pros and cons.
