 Market

Now more than ever, Americans mistrust the ability of their government and the media to provide a true picture of how politics will impact their lives.

            

People DO not Trust The Government
            

People CanNOT Name their congressmen
            

People Believe TRaditional News is Fake

We call this the S.D.I. approach

Penhole prides itself on providing simple, direct, and instantaneous information that is non-partisan and unbiased, all while being quicker and more concise than a Google search. We call this the SDI approach.

SIMPLE

Simple, unbiased facts: no spin, no slant.

DIRECT

Information straight from government websites directly to you.

INSTANTANEOUS

Insights readily available, all  at the touch of a finger.

App Architecture

Understanding the Design

Penhole’s architecture is built to create organic user interaction while promoting interest in politics. This application uses React Native, Redux, and the Eva Design System. Penhole utilizes Google Firebase for a backend solution supporting its database, analytics, and social auth integration.

Road Map

Penhole aims to provide information at every level of government. Right now, we provide our users with legislative and representative information at the federal level. Nevertheless, our team is working hard to expand Penhole’s functionality for the future. That’s where we are going – making state and local government information accessible, too. We are going to give you all the information we can at every level of government. Every. Single. Level.
