What content is included in the app?

  • CQ News updated throughout the day
  • CQ Schedules updated throughout the day
  • CQ Weekly as issues are published
  • CQ Roll Call on air video updated with the latest clips

How do the app’s alerts work? The app has alerts which are iOS operating system alerts, not CQ.com alerts. App alerts can be set up by keyword, subject (using CQ.com’s subject codes), person (Senator or Representative) or source (CQ News, CQ Weekly). You can also add events from CQ Schedules to your calendar.

What are the alert delivery options? Alerts on the App can be set up to deliver via email and/or via push notification to the device. You can choose alert delivery frequencies ranging from 15 minutes to 12 hours, with the default being one hour. CQ app alerts will have a “from” email address of cqapp@cqrollcall.com. You may need to add the “*@amazonses.com” address to your safe senders list to avoid spam filters.

Will searches on the CQ App work the same as on CQ.com? The app’s search engine is different from CQ.com’s. The app supports basic Boolean searching: multiple word searches will look for all words in a document, OR can be used to find documents with any word and “quote marks” will search for phrases.

Can content be shared from the app? Yes, you can email or text message articles, or share via social networking sites (Twitter and Facebook if you have them installed on your device). When emailing a story the headline and first paragraph of the article will be sent (along with any note added by you). When sharing via Twitter, Facebook or text messaging, only the headline link is delivered. In all cases a login to CQ.com is required to read the complete story.

Is the CQ app only for Apple devices? What about Blackberry or Android? The App is only for Apple devices at this time. Please let us know if you are interested in Blackberry and Android by emailing us at this address: cqapp@cqrollcall.com.
