On the desktop version of Politico, you are allowed to post comments and even make friends through your profile. This ap doesn't seem to allow that.

After the Rick Perry headline the only conclusion I can come to is that either Politico reporters are girls in junior high, or are briandead morons!

Fast loading and love the ability to easily share with all my facebook friends. Epic 4g

Great content, lousy app. Does not auto-refresh content on start-up & takes forever to load new content.
I was really happy when Politico finally got an Android app but was disappointed. Very slow. Stick with the mobile version of the website.

Great app...once it opens (Think you can cut that loading time down to, say, a half hour or so?)

Loads right away. Not sure why others have a problem. T-Mobile G2x

Strong, but it takes a bit to load up (4G). Also a bit unstable: while scrolling within an article it sometimes jumps to the preceding article.

The slowest of any major news app to load on Evo 4G. Can take several minutes. It is much faster to use the mobile site through phone's browser.
