When it comes to the presidential election, it can be mighty challenging to separate the wheat from the chaff. We're not talking about the actual candidates (though that poses challenges as well), but rather about the onslaught of news, opinion and polling that accompany the whole process. Sometimes it feels like you're standing in a hailstorm of election coverage with an umbrella made of tissue paper.
That's when election fatigue starts to set in. Of course, you want to be an informed voter, so what you need is a way to funnel the coverage, to keep a simple but steady stream of information flowing just where you want it. The best option? Your phone or tablet and one of the eight apps we've rounded up here.
This collection includes not only general-news apps from the likes of CNN, Fox News and The New York Times, but also election-specific news apps. Some promise non-partisan coverage, others make no such promises. And if you're a poll junkie, we've got you covered there, too.
If you already have a favorite news app, chances are good it's already serving up plenty of election-oriented coverage. But serious news hounds, especially those who enjoy numbers, charts and other raw data, are sure to find their fix in one or more of these apps.
