BLOOMINGTON) - After a public testing period, the City of Bloomington is pleased to announce the general availability of its Bloomington.app and GeoReporter Open311 issue reporting tools for Apple iOS devices.
An Android version of the app is being developed with the help of Google through the Google Summer of Code program and will be available at the end of the summer.
The City's new mobile application works with Bloomington's Open311 issue tracking application called uReport. Through uReport citizens can notify the City of community issues, such as potholes, graffiti, malfunctioning street lights, and many more, via their mobile device. Bloomington.app and GeoReporter are available in the Apple App Store and through http://boomington.in.gov/mobile.
"The release of the Bloomington IPhone app and future development of the Android app shows the City's dedication to providing top notch services to Bloomington residents," said Mayor Mark Kruzan. "Developing new methods of communicating with residents and visitors is critical to ensuring we are able to service requests in a timely fashion."
Residents don't need smart phones to report issues into uReport - residents can also report directly through the City's website at http://bloomington.in.gov/uReport or call the City at 812.349.3400.
