Are you a political animal? If keep on top of the US presidency, Congress and 2012 presidential race are your top priorities, download POLITICO, the Android app from the popular political journalism organization.
POLITICO is a pretty simple affair. It allows you to view and share content from the POLITICO website in a clean, easy-to-read interface. The main interface is divided into News, 2012 Live, 44 and More. Clicking More will allow you to access the other sections normally found on politico.com.
When you read individual articles with POLITICO, you’ll have a few options – mainly to save the ones you want to get back to, tweak the font size and share on Facebook, Twitter and by Email. Just bear in mind that during tests, the share function didn’t seem to work very well.
In all, POLITICO provides an easy way of reading articles that interest you, but it’s nothing special and no significant improvement of using the service via your browser or the web. With a few feature additions, it could be a much better app, but as things stand, it’s very average.
POLITICO: unfortunately, it’s nothing special and probably not worth the download.
