The app features a pictorial directory of each member of the 112th Congress along with their party affiliation, hometown, home state and length of service.

The free Mobile Member Guide app is available on major mobile platforms including iPhones, iPads, Blackberry devices and Android devices.

“GPO has experienced an incredible transformation in its 150 year history from handset type to handheld devices,” said Public Printer Bill Boarman. “We are very excited to release our first app for the public and provide a tool that will connect the public with Members of Congress. GPO looks forward to developing more apps in the future to provide the public with new options for accessing Government information.”
