With voting set to open on Thursday May 7th for the 2015 UK general election, now’s the perfect time to brush up on the main party policies and get the latest news from the polls. Here are the best iOS and Android apps to follow the general election as it happens and figure out who to vote for.
UK General Election 2015 (Newsfusion) – Android and iOS
A great little hub for all of the big election news, from sources such as The Guardian, Telegraph and Independent. The latest UK election polls are available in an easy-to-read graph format, to see who’s in the lead as the deadline approaches. You can also read up on where each party stands on key issues like the NHS, and even take the much-publicised ‘Vote Match’ quiz to see who you should vote for, if you’re still stuck.
BBC News – Android and iOS
The BBC News app contains a nifty ‘My Topics’ section, where you can ask to only receive important election news. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, the Beeb has pretty comprehensive coverage on all things general election, including the latest polls, a policy tracker guide and plenty of analysis.
Policies Please – Android and iOS
If all you want is a straight-talking round-up of each party’s main policies, in a well-presented and clearly organised app, then look no further. Find out what Labour, the Tories, UKIP, the Lib Dems and the Greens think about immigration, education, foreign policy, housing and more.
UK Elections (Google) – Android
Google’s elections 2015 app is simplicity itself, but handy all the same if you find yourself constantly searching for info online. The app is essentially just a hub to Google’s search engine, allowing you to quickly scout out news on your constituency (including who your local MPs are), check out the latest election videos and so on.
