As the election draws near, we want to share a trio of apps that can help you sort out the facts from the fiction.

Politifact

This mobile “Truth-O-Meter” fact-checks politicians and pundits. The app also groups trending issues and sorts its rulings by subject and people.

Polltracker

Political website, Talking Points Memo‘s app provides updated data on political polls for races across the country.

We live in a society addicted to technology. More smartphones are being used in the classroom and in our offices every day.
