Florida Politics Blog: uCampaign is Political Pokémon Go

Pokemon Go

Blake Dowling of the Florida Politics blog gives uCampaign a shout-out:

“I am back in the swing of things and thought we could look around the political landscape and see what tech folks are using to get themselves into office – without fake ads and stealing/borrowing data.

During his last run, Ted Cruz used a very innovative suite of mobile apps called uCampaign. The app actually makes campaigning a game (to some, it already is) and you are awarded points for reaching specific achievements.

“Political Pokémon,” I call it.

Apps like uCampaign can really change how a supporter engages with those they support. His fans were (literally) all tied together in a digital community. Very cool.”

Thanks, Blake! We think it’s cool, too! 😎
