  • CQ Schedules updated throughout the day
  • CQ Magazine as issues are published
  • All of the other content included in your CQ.com and CQ+ subscription package.

How do the app’s alerts work?
The app’s alerts are synchronized between your CQ.com, CQ+ and CQ mobile accounts. Opting in for push notifications sets your default notification setting to send push alerts when a bill you follow changes status. If you want to receive push notifications on all items that you follow, go to your app’s settings page and toggle the selector to “All Notifications.”

Please note that changing your push notification settings will not impact your email alert settings.

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 articles. When emailing a story the link, headline and first paragraph of the article will be sent (along with any note added by you). 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 but an Android version will be released in the near future. Please let us know if you are interested in Blackberry and Android by emailing us at this address: cqapp@cqrollcall.com.
