politicoTracker is a news discovery tool designed for the specific purpose of finding news articles about particular people - over 6600 US Federal, State, and local elected officials and appointees.
Using powerful object-based meta-data technology, politicoTracker news results are not only highly targeted and relevant, they can be easily cross-searched against a variety of other news “objects”, be they other people, companies or government entities, or topics of interest.
This ability to construct accurate, instantaneous groupings of news articles can bring to light “hidden” relationships you may not have been aware of - it is the essence of news discovery.
politicoTracker is available through Apple’s App Store for your iPhone or iPod Touch, and comes pre-loaded with the full politicos database. Your searches are conducted real-time via the device’s internet connection, so you always get the latest results.
