Citizens out in force with CitySourced

CitySourced is a free iPhone application that lets citizens immediately report civic woes directly to their local government. Users take a photo, select report type, add comments and send. The incident is then directed to the appropriate department. You can download CitySourced here.

San Jose, CA, is the first city to adopt the program. Interested cities can sign up here.
