City of Seattle
Was making an app to report homelessness easier than trying to resolve the issue or help the homeless? Seattle is literally in one of the richest states last I checked.. and you can’t afford to repair your damaged system that has left these people homeless, but you sat down with developers and designers and talked this up?
Do better. Solve the problem the right way or shut the hell up about it. These people are already at the bottoms of their luck and here come the idiots with apps and smartphones to report them.
Great Community App
The reviews ‘Is Anyone There?’ And ‘ ...Useless’ are very unfair about the great effort Seattle is making to keep our City pulled together. I get that they didn’t get an immediate response but I can’t see how they don’t understand that it’s a big city and things get addressed only as the resources are available - that’s true for everybody on a personal level and more so on an institutional level. I use this app a fair amount and I can see the results as well as email explanations of where the request got routed and when it’s likely to be addressed. They also give me links that explain policy and programs that the City has enacted. All that is really useful and it should be appreciated that the City cannot control the bad behavior and irresponsibility that cause many of these issues in the first place. They are reaching out to the general public for an extra set of eyes to help keep up. I think that’s great, I’m proud of our city for doing it and I hope they keep Findit Fixit going.
Allowed me to report needles discarded
Don’t usually write reviews but felt that I needed to counterbalance the reviews that were not about the app itself but about political aspects of having the app
This app allowed me to easily report needle use and discard at a children’s playground and public indecency in front of a library. As a parent in Seattle, I’m glad to have a mechanism to report this to the city.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
