Sidewire is a free political news app that launched in September, 2015 and is available for iOS and Android. It has a community of expert and insider newsmakers, including journalists, leading campaign staff, presidential candidates, elected officials and political experts, who share their insight around the day’s political and election news coverage. However that is not the only reason for the title of this post.
My son works at Sidewire and has helped in the launch of the app. Since I’m not sure if I can give an unbiased review, I am going to share with you the reviews that the expert tech or political reviewers gave the Sidewire app.

Sidewire launches News Analysis Platform – Free Republic 9/18/15

Just in case some of these extra features were not focused on in the article or articles you read, here are some you might like:
- Push notifications alerting you to breaking analysis
- Chat with your friends about political news with in-app chat
- Easily share insights from top newsmakers to your social networks
- Anonymously “like” insight from newsmakers to boost it in the app
There are more glowing reviews on the Sidewire app out there, but I have not been able to find any negative reviews at all. If you think keeping up with the 2016 presidential election is tough now, just wait.
