6. Conservative Quote Of the Day (3.5, 264)
This one’s pretty cool, especially for those of you who like to include quotes from famous speakers in your e-mail signatures (and change them periodically). Just as simple as it sounds, this app features a button you can click for the quote of the day, as well as browse an archive of past quotes. My quote for today: “It is right not to allow one who is not a citizen to act as a citizen.” Cicero, De Officiis, 44 BC.
7. iAmerica – The Pocket Guide to United States History and the Presidency (3.0, 1192)
This fact-filled app contains primers on and images of every U.S. president from #1 to #44 for quick and easy reference. The descriptions of the presidents are basically nonpartisan, emphasizing as they do the more popular or active aspects of each president’s history, or framing each president’s actions in the most positive light possible, as someone from his party might do.
8. Political GPS Free (3.0, 442)
A more expanded, 30-question political “compass” quiz, with a broader range of questions than #5 above. This one places you on a square with four sides reading Conservative, Anarchist, Liberal, and Totalitarian, and four corners reading Libertarian, Corporate Fascist, Anarchist Communist, and Totalitarian Socialist.
9. msnbc.com Conservative Cartoons (3.0, 129)
No, this isn’t a blank application, and yes, there’s a Liberal version too. This continually updated collection of full-color cartoons includes options to e-mail, tweet, Facebook, comment on, and favorite each one. Cartoons offered when I checked the app covered the midterm elections, quantitative easing, Nancy Pelosi, and Vladimir Putin, though unfortunately I didn’t recognize any well-known cartoonists among the artists.
10. Voter Fraud Mobile (3.5, 72)
Have this one downloaded for the 2012 primary season. This app allows you to easily report fraud incidents, including taking and sending photos of shady or suspicious proceedings, sending a description of the problem, and automatically having your location and the polling place’s address send to election officials. A newsfeed also features stories about local incidents of voter fraud and polling mishaps.
