San Francisco’s app showcase highlights civic innovation

San Francisco residents can take full advantage of the city’s open data via Web and mobile applications featured at DataSF App Showcase. Apps offer crime updates, recycling locations, restaurant health inspection scores, BART/MUNI schedules and more. Developers can also submit apps for submission.

Recommendations to SF and other cities who want to do the same:

  • Create an RSS feed for new apps.
