PDX Reporter is a direct result of Mayor Adams and the City of Portland's call for more open data and interactions with the citizens of Portland. PDX Reporter is used by members of the community to report and request service calls to city assets and infrastructure, including issues with parks, pot holes, street lights, plugged storm drains, and graffiti.

Using an iPhone or Android device, citizens can access this easy-to-use interface to the City of Portland's issue reporting infrastructure. Users select the type of issue to report, take a photo (or upload and existing one), geo-locate the issue via GPS or interactive map, add comments, and send their report directly to the responsible bureau for resolution. Users can also view issues they have previously submitted and check the status of the issue.

PDX Reporter is a small but important step in allowing members of the community to participate in expediting the City of Portland's awareness and resolution of various issues. PDX Reporter is available for free within the Apple App Store or Android Marketplace.

This app is great and pretty much what I had in mind when I heard about civicapps.com. Are there any plans to make an Android version? A good idea considering the City Council's response to Google's 1gpbs fiber project ;)
