It’s no secret that it’s a very important year for politics, when you consider that cable news has been promoing debates like they’re part of the NBA playoffs, and Wolf Blitzer is offering projections.

If you’re having a hard time keeping up with the Kardashians — I mean, election — here’s how to make sense of it all with your trusty mobile device.

CNN Politics (iOS)

CNN’s newest app, CNN Politics (named after the digital brand of the same name), tracks everything you’d need to know about the political madness — results, breaking news, delegate math — in a nice visual interface. You swipe from side to side to see the day’s top headlines, and up and down to dig deep into the data.

For those looking for a digestable feel, you can also sign up for daily recaps and personalized alerts.

all Politics (Android)

For a more balanced (no Fox News pun intended) look at the political landscape, all Politics is a great option. With viewpoints from major talkers on the left and the right, along with aggregated news from sources like Politico, Fox, and MSNBC, it’s a great one stop shop for all of your political needs.

Honorable mention: Bing/Google

Lastly, both Bing and Google are providing results and viewpoints on the major candidates.

Both engines provide results in the primaries (with Bing predicting winners based on its Predicts feature), but both have their own special twists.

Bing provides a nice timeline view that helps to get a broader picture of everything going on in the race for the White House, while Google offers a detailed look on each candidate’s views on issues like immigration, abortion, and guns by searching “[candidate] on the issues”

To access these features, search “2016 elections” in your favorite search engine (I prefer Bing, but I don’t judge).

Honorable Mention: Inside the Politics (Web)

I’d also be remiss to mention Inside the Politics, our political blog written by Kelechi Anyanwu, who tries to make politics a little more sensical (along with a sense of humor rivaling my own, for better or worse).

Anyways, for more Workaholic fun (along with music recommendations and snarky Donald Trump jokes), follow me around the Interwebs and I’ll be back next week.
