Apps have been made for almost every need imaginable at this point—reporting to the city is no exception.

The City of Colorado Springs has created an app that allows citizens who use iPhones—and eventually other cell phones that offer apps—to make a request to city from their phone. Using the web-based program GORequest, which iPhone users can download for free from the iTunes store, people can report on the following categories:

• abandoned vehicles
• barking dogs
• public transit
• noise ordinance
• park/trail/open space maintenance
• sidewalks/curb and gutter
• streetlights
• traffic
• traffic signals
• traffic signs and markings

More categories may be added in the future.

Users can just find the category they wish to report on, on the app, and then submit. A picture can also be included. User will then be kept up-to-date about their issue through e-mail until the service request is fulfilled.

A mobile app for Blackberry is expected in the next few months. Any phone with Internet capability can use the function through the Web by going to the Colorado Springs city Website, and click on "Citizen Request" under "Other Mobile Devices."
