Download the POLITICO for Android Phone app today to get your politics fix. The clean, easy-to-navigate layout is ideal for staying up to date when you’re on the go. POLITICO serves as the one-stop shop for the fastest, most in-depth coverage of the president, Congress, 2014 Midterm elections, and 2016 presidential race. POLITICO’s journalists break news and drive conversation about the White House, Capitol Hill and Washington lobbying, plus the intersection of politics with Wall Street, media and personalities. POLITICO launched in January 2007 with the mission of covering politics with enterprise, style and impact. KEY FEATURES: 

★ Use the “Sections” button to navigate between several different POLITICO News, Blogs, Policy, Morning Tipsheets, Videos categories, and LIVE online content, as well as Photos, and user-Saved Articles. The More Info section contains settings, a helpful FAQ, privacy policy, terms and conditions, and easy-to-use tell a friend and feedback mail templates.

★ NEW POLITICO Magazine covers in-depth opinions and narratives.

★ Use the familiar swipe gestures to move between different articles within the same section.

★ Article videos are played in full-screen mode, with familiar overlay controls.

★ Article photo galleries are played in full-screen mode, with overlaid captions and credits. Use swipe gestures to move to the next or previous image in the gallery. Use the tap gesture to toggle between showing and hiding the caption and credit. This view also supports rotation.

★ You can view Article text in one of three different sizes, so it’s at your optimal reading size. To change the text size while viewing an Article, use your phone’s Menu button to access the “Font Size” option. Your desired setting is always remembered.

★ Article links to the source content on politico.com may be shared with anyone via email, Twitter, or Facebook, etc.

★ Current support for 4 types of push notifications. Users can enable/disable each type individually by accessing the Preferences via the phone’s Menu button in the Sections list. The complete text of the last (unexpired) pushed notification is always downloaded for in-app viewing. When enabled, access the current notification by tapping the “Alert” button in the Sections list. Notifications can now be copied or shared via email or Twitter.

★ POLITICO will dynamically deliver additional News, Blogs, or other feeds in the future, without requiring an app update. Make sure you have the “New App Features” notifications preference switch turned ON, to get notified when significant changes occur.

★ POLITICO Article, Video, and Photos content changes several times, every day. The app will automatically check for changes several times every hour, and intelligently download only those changes that are different from the last downloaded content. If you want an immediate update, you can always use the pull-to-refresh mechanism built into every section front.

★ All downloaded non-video Article content is intelligently cached for offline reading when a network connection is not convenient. You can use the “AUTO UPDATE” flags in the Sections list to control what and how much content we automatically download. Selecting a section that is not flagged for auto updating will only download that section upon demand when a network connection is available, otherwise we present the last downloaded version of that content, for offline reading.

★ For more usage, tips, and information, please refer to the FAQ from the More Info section.

★ Feedback is welcome and appreciated.  You can mail us directly from within the app by going to the More Info section.
