Boston Street Bump

The City of Boston has a new app for its residents that allows them to use their smartphone’s accelerometer (the sensor that detects movements to know how the phone is being held) to locate and register potholes.

Street Bump will provide the City with a near-real time picture of Boston’s road conditions and the location of its potholes.  Street Bump should give the City the information it needs to make your travels through our city even easier.

The app is currently in beta/prototype and available only for Android.
