    Problems solved faster using this app than actually calling/dialing 311. Plus you don't need a pen and paper to write down anything, it's all right here on your phone.

    other than the GPS placement being off by a half block, the app works very well. On another note, the City of Philadelphia Streets Department responded to the request very quickly, to my surprise. Not the same ol' philly.

    It's nice to be able to report a problem and back it up with a picture. App notifies you when comments and/or updates have been left about your submission. Thumbs up!

    It is so great to be able to report safety issues that I see around my neighborhood. In the few weeks I have been using this app I have reported several safety issues and graffiti sightings. It is great to backup my written request with pictures. The email updates are great too.
