Reporting pot holes can be easy if your mayor is Cory Booker, but for the rest of us tweeting a pot hole often does little to help. That’s why I am really excited about Civic Hero – it’s an app that lets you report on local issues to your city government. But it doesnt’ stop there. Unlike most files at city hall that disappears into filing cabinets in the basement behind mystery doors, your reports actually get follow ups. The app actually tracks each report:
Civic Hero is the easiest way to report community issues such as graffiti, potholes, or damaged public property to your local government. Simply select the type of issue you’re reporting, snap a quick photo or add a comment and you’re done. The app will send your report to the appropriate government agency and track the status of the issue on your behalf. You can also review and comment on issues reported by others in your community. Civic Hero is about ordinary people building extraordinary communities together.
Hello internet citizens! This is Phi Tran and I’m thrilled to be joining the Appnewser team.
I’m writing to you from San Francisco – the technological hub that never stops eating. I’m a wordy designer with a penchant for technology and gizmos. When I’m not online digesting mobile trends, I attend live concerts, read plenty of paper books, and cook up a tart or two. I also have a thing for pretty pictures so I’m constantly hauling around my cameras and lusting after beautiful photos on Pinterest.
Feel free to send me an email (chickiephi AT gmail.com) or ping me on Twitter if you want to talk about tech related gossip. I especially enjoy Photoshopped cats on buildings, so if you have any, please submit them to my Tumblr.
