Public Safety

Shows a list of recent restaurant inspections near the CitySync user. Allows the user to see the details of the inspection (violations, etc) and click through to a map of the establishment.


Ideally, the application could use the CitySync framework to store information for the logged in user, such as which inspections have already been viewed, radius of interest, etc. Then the app could collapse down to a very small footprint on the main page, and only pop up when a new inspection appears.

Targeted demographic (business, resident, or both): 
Primarily resident, but it's good for businesses to know that their target demographic is aware of their inspection results.
Who and what will be impacted by the app, and how?: 
Users get more visibility into restaurant inspections, increased awareness of government operations, etc.
What is the specific need that is addressed by the app?: 
Visibility of public data.
Anticipated usage of the app (by whom, under what circumstances, etc)?: 
Those that have a concern for the cleanliness of the restaurants they visit.
How is information presented, that's not presented elsewhere; how is it unique?: 
Shows results near the user (sorted by distance)*, clean and simple format. * - Currently uses the "test" CitySync user preferences object with that user's location.
Which, if any, community datasets are used?: 
CivicApps/CitySync API "Restaurant Inspections" Google GeoLocation/Maps

This one actually appears useful. Almost all apps are useful but there are most which are just as added ease. This one I liked after long.

An important app for small business owners.

I thought it was going to be some boring old post, but it really compensated for my time. I will post a link to this page on my blog. I am sure my visitors will locate that extremely useful
