If you're reading this, you're likely accustomed to the dogged reporting Capitol Alert has provided to readers since our launch in 2007. We strive to offer the sharpest, most immediate look at the vibrant world of California policy and politics.
Today, we take it to the next level with the launch of Capitol Alert's Insider Edition app.
For politicians, political operatives and policy junkies - anyone whose job depends on knowing what's happening at the Capitol and in the 2014 elections - Insider Edition offers a comprehensive set of services designed to keep you in the loop and ahead of the curve. A sampling of what to expect:
All of the stories you can find on Capitol Alert and The State Worker, accessible on your smart phone or tablet at the touch of a finger.
Exclusive early access to Field Poll stories, Bee editorials, Dan Morain's columns and Jack Ohman's political cartoons at 8 p.m. every evening.

A bill-tracking feature that provides automatic updates on the progress of key legislation hand-picked by Capitol Bureau reporters.
