  • Works, but outdated Nov 1, 2018

    By Sniffy Longdroppings
    This app provides good information at the federal level, but fails to provide anything at the lower level. It could also use an update to the look and feel of it.

    Great app, disappointing that the last update was 2018 seeing as how it's almost 2021.
  • Excellent on iPad Air Oct 9, 2015

    This app offers terrific information on Government salaries and project spending on federal and state levels. Current information is limited to 19 states but hopefully other states will feel the pressure to open up their books. Kudos!

  • So much missing Sep 9, 2019

    By NOLA Gurl
    As another reviewer noted, maybe things are good at the federal level but sooooo much is missing at the state level and it’s info that is definitely available online. I hoped this would be a nice, one-stop shop, but it falls far short.

    Good information but old. Update the information.
  • Very quirky Feb 23, 2021

    By 1Blazer
    Freezes in the middle of changing screens. When looking up an individual name, asks for a state. Looks like no updates or fixes of bugs in 3 years. Unheard of these days of such rapid change.
  • Problematic Mar 10, 2020

    By woodchopper545
    Tried it out and found problems with the app. Too hard to use AND the pages would half flip and become unreadable and stuck in place.
  • Bad app Mar 21, 2020

    By ssbbgo
    Could not do anything at all on this app (iPhone 11). The app keeps freezing up on opening a page with no way of starting over without restarting phone. Great idea, junk app.

    Shocking the money some entities receive. This app is purely informational disclosure of funding by the government.

  • Good app but state checkbook needs help (Idaho) Nov 16, 2020

    By Rhino102995
    Great info, but somehow I glitched it and the state level checkbook won’t work and Idaho isn’t in the selection list for some reason.
  • Filter by Organization Dec 30, 2011

    By wgiza
    Interesting information that could be provided in a more useful way if a way was provided to filter by organization or town.
