Va. man develops pothole app
A Springfield man has developed a free app for the iPhone and Android called "Pothole Alert," WTOP reports.
Minh Tran's app will deliver your phone's GPS coordinates to the appropriate transportation department when you give your device a double-tap with your finger, after you confirm by e-mail that the coordinates correspond to the location of the pothole in question.
While he hasn't been able to confirm that his app has been directly responsible for getting a pothole repaired, Tran says transportation departments from at least 20 states are receiving pothole information from the app, and they're encouraging him to keep the data coming.
