A new phone app allows voters to keep track of donors supporting President Barack Obama and Republican contender Mitt Romney.
Politicash 2012, a mobile app created by Maplight, gives a quick glance into who is funding the presidential races. The nonprofit based in Berkeley, CA, is dedicated to following money and politics.
Candidates receive a tweet automatically alerting them when the feature has been activated. A shaking feature gives users a random glance at campaign contributors.
It’s updated once a week with information from the Federal Elections Commission.
