Cory Renzella today announced the release of "2016 Election Map: The Presidential Election & Electoral College App". Now available in the News category of the App Store, "2016 Map" lets you explore, edit, and share 2016 presidential election scenarios in a quick and easy way. This iOS app has been significantly upgraded from its 2012 version, and it is the must-have app for anyone interested in American politics and the 2016 presidential election.
"2016 Map" includes a "Live" map that will be updated every day with the newest polls; "Historical" maps that detail every election, from 1789 through 2012; "Scenarios", which present possible paths to victory; and a "New" blank map that you can customize from scratch. In presidential elections, it's the electoral vote that matters most. That vote is determined by the states each candidate wins, and whether you're interested in historical elections or the 2016 election, "2016 Election Map: The Presidential Election & Electoral College App" covers it all.
According to Cory Renzella, the app's creator, "This app focuses on what really matters in the election, and it's got something for everyone. History buffs can read about the controversial election of 1876, when Rutherford Hayes beat Samuel Tilden by a single electoral vote; people who are focused on the current race can look at polling details in every state and see that on June 15, Clinton was holding a slight 42.5% to 41.5% lead over Trump in the pivotal swing state of Florida; and people who simply want to create their own scenarios can explore pre-filled maps or start from scratch with a blank map, experimenting to see what the map would look like if a Republican swept the south, a Democrat took the coasts, and a third-party candidate had a strong showing out West."
The first version of this app, titled for the 2012 election, rose as high as #1 in the Paid iPhone News category and #15 in the entire Paid iPhone app chart. With the unprecedented attention that this campaign has already received, similar results are expected for "2016 Map".
