This video introduces the SunLight labs Congress application for Windows Phone Series 7. It demonstrates the key features of the Congress application and explains a bit about the Sunlight Labs API which allows users to:

  • Search for legislators by last name, 2-letter state code, and last name.
  • Call a legislator or visit their website.
  • Read aggregated news about a legislator.
  • Read a legislator's tweets.
  • Watch a legislator's YouTube videos.

Be sure to follow on the US Public Sector Developer & Platform Evangelism Team Blog for more information and videos about how this application was developed, architected, and designed. Also, the code for this application is available as Open Source as a SunLight labs community development project!
