The ingenious new (and free) 'SuperPAC App' by Glassy Media allows users to identify the source of the ad that they are currently listening to. Similar to Shazam in its use of audio recognition services, the SuperPAC App can pick up sounds to understand exactly which political service it's coming from and give users information to make a more informed voting decision this coming November.

SuperPACs have been criticized in the past for its lack of transparency and permitting candidates to do the same. The money seemingly flows in and out without any understanding of where it is really going or what it's contributing to. As a result, the company has been met with great skepticism, making the invention of the SuperPAC App truly necessary.
