As the U.S. 2012 presidential election campaign gathers momentum, an app that checks the factual statements of politicians earned a thumbs up from Apple.

PolitiFact Mobile is currently the only news app in New & Noteworthy section, alongside mostly entertainment offerings like graphic novel “Burn Notice”, music app Radio Soulwax, and a few productivity apps like PriorityList.

Updated July 6, the $1.99 app that promises to keep politicians in check now also works on the iPad. The app gauges the truthiness of U.S. politicians in a variety of ways, just like the Pulitzer-winning website of the same name staffed by reporters of the St. Petersburg Times, so you can track who is fibbing and who is flip-flopping on the issues of the day.
