6/8/10 – US poker players now have an innovative new tool for lobbying their political representatives to support the game. The Poker Players Alliance has unveiled its new iPhone app with an innovative ‘Click to call Congress' feature.
 
"Our members are extremely tech savvy and always looking for more ways to show their support for protecting their right to play poker," said John Pappas, executive director of the PPA this week. "The PPA iPhone app, like our Tweet for Poker website, provides a cutting edge tool for our members to quickly and easily show their support for online poker."
 
The PPA's app offers users a ‘Click to call Congress' feature, where those who download the app simply click a button on the app and are automatically connected via phone to their member of Congress' office in Washington, D.C.
 
Additionally, the app aggregates the latest PPA tweets, tournament feeds from Bluff Magazine, and the most recent news and updates from PPA, whose members can also find other members in their hometown and enter contests and promotions with an innovative ‘scan barcode' function.
