For those pesky potholes, damaged street signs, and other local problems that get you down, the DC311 app makes reporting a problem easier than ever. This iPhone, and iPad compatible, app uses GPS to recognize your location and gives you a menu of common quality-of-life conditions to select from. The app allows you to upload pictures to accompany your request. The mobile app can also be used for a variety of other issues such as graffiti, street maintenance, street light issues, damaged trees, parking meters, and bulk collection. Residents can track the status of reports they or other members of the community have submitted.
