Yesterday, we featured SuperPAC, the Glassy Media iOS app that "listens" to political ads to tell you who's behind them. Turns out, the folks at watchdog organization the Sunlight Foundation unveiled their own version on the very same day. It's basically the exact same app, except for a few minor differences: "AdHawk" has a better name, and works on Android phones. Start it up when an ad starts playing, and a little bird will fly around it will bring up who paid for the ad, where it's airing and news about the groups behind the ad.
