Looking for your lawmaker? There’s an app for that.

Yes — as the well-worn saying goes — there’s a new and improved app for that.

The Government Printing Office on Tuesday plans to unveil the latest version of its Mobile Member Guide, an app that the agency promises will provide “quick, easy access” to information on lawmakers.

If you’re in a bind, visit for official biographies of House members and senators, contact information for their D.C. and home state offices, a list of the counties and ZIP codes each member represents and links to their official Web sites.

The mobile app first launched in November, and GPO also helped develop official government apps about the federal budget and the Congressional Record

Incidentally, the super-awesome, must-have PostPolitics iPad app is available for download by visiting or by visiting the App Store and searching for “post politics.”
