“Congress 112,” Carmen Group’s congressional directory App allows you to quickly search the Senate or House of Representatives by name, state or committee. Then it will show you the member’s picture, party affiliation, congressional district, DC address, phone number, fax number, committees, subcommittees, top four staffers and congressional web site link. You can map the location or place a call directly from the App. Data is provide by CongressMerge.com and is updated quarterly and incrementally.
On January 31, 2012 we updated to version 1.6, having added committee and subcommittee pages that dynamically link back to member records.
The application has access to the following:
full Internet access
Allows an application to create network sockets.
view network state
Allows an application to view the state of all networks.
coarse (network-based) location
Access coarse location sources such as the cellular network database to determine an approximate phone location, where available. Malicious applications can use this to determine approximately where you are.
fine (GPS) location
Access fine location sources such as the Global Positioning System on the phone, where available. Malicious applications can use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.
directly call phone numbers
Allows the application to call phone numbers without your intervention. Malicious applications may cause unexpected calls on your phone bill. Note that this does not allow the application to call emergency numbers.
