SACRAMENTO, Calif., Aug. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- This week, The Sacramento Bee debuts its Capitol Alert Insider Edition app for iPhone or iPad. Capitol Alert Insider Edition was created to give those whose work depends on what happens at the Capitol all the inside information they need to do their jobs.
The "Insider" app will provide breaking news alerts, political coverage and The Bee's popular blogs to readers anywhere, anytime. As California heads into the 2014 elections, it will help users keep up with the fast-moving world of state politics.
"Our chief mission with this product is to be useful," said The Bee's Political Editor Amy Chance. "We want to provide insiders with early information, cut through the Twitter clutter and put key information about the Legislature and California politics at their fingertips on a mobile device."
Key features of the app include early access to the Field Poll results and a pre-publication peek at The Bee's opinion section. By 8 p.m. each evening, Bee editorials on state topics, Jack Ohman's political cartoons and Dan Morain's column will be available in the "Insider Access" section.
Looking for information on the Legislature? The Bee has compiled a directory, which provides a quick look at each lawmaker and email access to their schedulers and staff.
A curated Twitter feed sends out only the key voices you need to hear to follow the California political conversation.
Follow the "Bills to Watch" section, and you won't be surprised by what's making the most noise in the halls of the Capitol - and get automatic updates on the bills' progress.
