The mobile app, which was released before the city’s official Philly311 app, will streamline local complaints of graffiti, potholes, absentee landlords and any other neighborhood blights that require a response from the city.
Users can upload photos and an exact location using GPS to supplement their report. According to the app’s description, Bobby Henon and his staff will “handle each of these constituent service requests quickly and thoroughly.”
If you ask us, this app couldn’t come at a better time, since city officials finally seem ready to tackle the litany of dangers stemming from Philly’s absentee property owners (fires, rogue drug nests).
Download the app here, but, please, keep it away from your crazy Aunt who can’t stop sweeping the sidewalk.
