If you own an iPhone, you can now download a free application for reporting and cataloging citizen complaints. The application, called iBurgh, allows residents to snap iPhone photos of problems such as potholes and graffiti and send them to the city’s 311 complaint system, embedded with Global Positioning System data with the problem’s exact location. The free application, designed by YinzCam Inc. of Squirrel Hill, will issue the reports to city departments for review, just as the city’s current 311 complaint phone line does.
The iBurgh application is currently only available for use on iPhones, but will be expanded for use on most other smart phones soon. Users of iPhones can find it through the “App Store” application on their phones or via http://appshopper.com/utilities/iburgh.
