I had never visited this website before getting this app so I didn't know what I was missing. The site is very intuitive and fun to navigate. I am a skeptical person, so I checked accuracy as much as I could given my very limited resources and my admitted bias. I thought it all rang true and unbiased. I suspect others will believe otherwise and only hope that they will do their own fact-checking with reliable sources before dismissing this one. A true time-saver and fun to boot!

I cannot add to the cogent and well-informed review written by BC Kelley on July 4, 2012, or to the shorter reviews of others who have given this wonderful app high ratings.

Suffice it to say that a true ethical person, one with his own internal critical moral compass, one who does not get his "values" pumped into his head by various nefarious pundits, politicians, PACs, special interest goons, etc. ... such a person is NEVER afraid of the truth. A true patriot is never afraid of the truth, but welcomes it.

I am not a liberal, and I tell you this, do not believe the drivel in the poor reviews of this app here. Don't believe a bunch; of frightened little self-deluding intellectually lazy people saying what they can to prevent you from finding the truth. You will find this app very valuable. Get it.

This app is shown as compatible with Kindle Fires and Fire Phones. IT IS NOT COMPATIBLE. The app requires Adobe Air, which is not compatible with those devices. It should not be shown as compatible and has been reported to Amazon.

I used this during the presidential election and found some surprising facts that were "overlooked" by both sides of the "spin" news. Still it falls victim to pre-existing ideas on subjects.

An easy way to check whether politicians are getting their facts correct. Nicely implemented app. Seems to actually live up to the idea of being " fair and balanced" unlike others who claim to be.

I have found Politifact.com to be a reliable place to find the truth about today's politics. It is not the only one I use because I prefer to verify facts with more than one objective and reliabe source. Other reliable and objective sources, such as Factcheck.org, TruthorFiction.com or Snopes.com, provide links to audio, video or the original documentation to prove what they have found to be true. If some conservative pundit misquotes or subjectively paraphrases our Declaration of Independence, having a link to the Library of Congress digital collection that displays the image of the actual Declaration of Independence is undeniably the real "un-slanted" truth.

I continue to be amazed that, confronted with truth, some of the ealier reviewers of this App insinuate that it is a conspiracy against their beliefs...they don't say it's not the truth, just slanted to the political left. Therefore, from the reviews posted earlier, I propose this hypothesis:

Politifact.com provides the truth
The truthful findings on Politifact.com is greatly slanted to the left
The political left is greatly truthful

When I have challenged such people to provide a source that proves what they believe has been said or taken place, they can only provide the liar that told them the lie. The right wing conservatives seem to have devolved into a new version of the "Know Nothing" political movement of the mid 19th century.

So, use Politifact.com - either this App or their web site - and seek out other objective sources of the truth. It's also very interesting to watch The Daily Show (or go to its web site) to see actual video clips of many politicians and pundits who contradict themselves in order to push their own agenda to the masses.

I haven't figured out how to run this. Requires Overdrive which some sources say I have on the Kindle Fire and others say I don't. My opinion is that if Overdrive is not available they shouldn't offer the opportunity for me to download this. If it is, they ought to make it easier to figure out how to load. I do not find that the Kindle is very transparent about how to find help. There seems to be more than one source of help and I get lost. Anyone listening up there in the Kindle world???? Not everyone's an expert down here.
