App-tastic Tuesday: 270 to Win

In case you hadn't noticed, it's an election year. Political junkies and the apathetic alike will find something to enjoy about 270 to Win.

This fun little 99-cent app lets you view and manipulate election maps, both historical and projected. You can see which states voted red or blue, how long they've been voting that way, and how many electoral votes each one brings to the table.

There are state profiles showing history, voting tendencies, and how the state's electoral vote count has fluctuated over the years.

Of particular interest this year is the ability to start with a projection map and change states' decisions to see how each change would affect the presidential election's outcome. You can pick from a library of different projection maps and tweak to your heart's content.

Visit their website or find them in the App Store.

And, of course, don't forget to download the Reeves Library app!
