Remember the good old days when men were men and potholes ruled the earth?
Men saw potholes, snapped them with their camera-phones, transferred the pics to their PCs and emailed them to their local council with a terse note attached.
Well say goodbye to such homespun old techniques… the “Fill That Hole” app is here.
According to makers, Aggregate Industries: “the iPhone app combines a photograph of a pothole with GPS technology to pinpoint the exact location of the hazard. Once a report is logged, the relevant local authority is informed so they can quickly inspect and fix it.”
Commissioned in part by the CTC [a UK-based cyclists’ organisation] the app works with iPhone models 3G, 3GS and 4, running Apple’s iOS version 3 or version 4.
