The PolitiFact app has become a bestseller.

It's been the best-selling news app in iTunes since Saturday and yesterday it surged into the Top 100. 

It faces stiff competition. Yesterday, it was right behind "ZombieBooth: 3D Zombifier." This morning, it's just ahead of "Talking Lila the Fairy."

(One of our editors suggests sales will really surge if we rename it "ZombieFact.")

To get the app for your iPhone or other smartphone, go to our mobile page.

In a marketplace dominated by games, it's great to see that an app holding politicians accountable can make the top 100.
