Write congress personal letters with a free BlackBerry app

This free app for BlackBerry looks great! Visible Vote allows you to write congress personal letters from your Blackberry, Vote on Issues your legislators are voting on and updates them with your voting preference. It’s the ultimate democratic BlackBerry app.

Recently, the app has been updated to include:

1) The ability to see the details on each Senator by clicking their picture. This will show the bills they are voting for/against you on (I know its not the prettiest thing yet).

2) Automatically move things to the Answered category upon answering a question without closing and opening the application.

For the Blackberry Storm, Blackberry Bold and 8900 Curve:

For OLDER BlackBerry devices, ie. 4.3-4.5 OS:

    I wanted this for my 8900, but .jad is not a supported extension or have I missed something? Is anyone else who has tried to download this seeing the same things?

    Hey MLB,

    It should work on the 8900… The big things I see hanging people up is the Browser settings on their Blackberry. You need to have your web browser set to Blackberry when you point it at that JAD file.

    I went to the link directly from my Storm and had no problems installing and running the app. I am quite impressed with it and plan on using it frequently.

    Great app. Depressing though. My reps only agree with my 50% of the time. Awesome idea, thanks to whoever created it. I will now proceed to annoy the hell out of my reps, as all good citizens should do.

    Hey, great idea for an app, thanks! I installed it on my storm and it worked great, but the next time I launched it the reps and issues won’t show up, and the password I set isn’t working. I deleted and re installed the app, but it’s still not working right. Any suggestions?
