Download the POLITICO iPad 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 and the 2012 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.


★ Use the “Sections” button to navigate between several different POLITICO News categories and Blogs feeds as well as the most recently uploaded POLITICO Videos and user-Saved Articles.

★ Article videos and images can be viewed inline or in full-screen mode. Video playback supports Apple's AirPlay technology.

★ Blogs and Video sections use a Table-of-Contents list for quickly scanning or finding what interests you most. Your open/closed setting of the Table-of-Contents is remembered until you change it.

★ Fully dynamic layout support in any view for any device orientation.

★ You can dynamically resize Article text so it's at your optimal reading size. Your desired setting is always remembered. To reset the size back to the original app default value, use the user Settings app.

★ Article links to the source content on may be copied or shared with anyone via Email, Twitter, or Facebook. You can also open them in Safari on your iPad.

★ Support for 4 types of push notifications. Users can enable/disable each type individually in the user Settings app. The complete text of the last (unexpired) pushed notification is always downloaded for in-app viewing. When enabled, simply press the “Alert” button next to the “Sections” button to access it.

★ POLITICO can dynamically deliver additional News or Blogs feeds in the future, without requiring an app update. Make sure you have the "New Application Features Alerts" switch turned on in the user Settings app for POLITICO, to get notified when this occurs.

★ Non-video article content is intelligently cached for offline reading when a network is not convenient.

★ Use the user Settings app to:
• Enable/disable different types of pushed (or pulled) alerts
• Clear any saved Twitter or Facebook login credentials
• Reset the default font size setting
• Remove all user-Saved Articles at once
• Empty the cache of Article images, freeing up device memory usage
• In the unlikely case of an app failure, reset all downloaded application files (doesn't affect cached images or saved articles)

★ POLITICO News, Blog, and Video content changes several times, every day. The app will automatically check for changes several times every hour, and intelligently downloads only those changes that are different from the last downloaded content. If you want an immediate update, you can always tap the hidden refresh button (the front-page title/date of any section).

★ Feedback is welcome and appreciated.
