What does it do?

Gives you fact-checks on all the issues you're voting on.

Why do we like it?

Politicians are politicians—they talk a lot of crap. If you want to know what's truth and what's a bunch of bull, you have to do some independent investigating. Everyone's entitled to an opinion, of course, but you want that opinion to come from knowledgable place. Also this app will help you make sure you're always right. And who doesn't like that?

Unfortunately Politifact is pretty bad at what they do, eg http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/01/25/finding-the-truth/ (OK Paul Krugman has his own ax to grind but you can find tons of other examples of how horrible Politifact is at fact checking).
