We’re taking our apps to the next level in NYC!

BY EMILY MAY

Yesterday, this Daily News piece came out talking about the app we’re developing with New York City Council members Christine Quinn and Julissa Ferreras. The app will allow New Yorkers to send reports of harassment, including location and time, to the New York City government. It’s the first initiative of it’s kind across the world, and our hope is that it will become a best practices for cities everywhere. Check out the media splash it made:

ABC:

Fox:
CBS:

Brooklyn Channel 12

Also, the Atlantic Wire, New York Magazine, Baltimore Sun, Village Voice, MSN, Reuters, Patch.com, and Mobiledia (at the bottom) covered the story.

The apps are still under development, and we’d love your advice. What do you think they should be able to do? What kind of information should they collect, and what kind of information should they not? Hollaback is built for you, by you, and as always you input is invaluable to us.
