Street Bump helps residents improve their neighborhood streets. As they drive, the mobile app collects data about the smoothness of the ride; that data provides the City with real-time information it uses to fix problems and plan long term investments.
Residents use Street Bump to record "bumps” which are identified using the device's accelerometer and located using its GPS. Bumps are uploaded to the server for analysis. Likely road problems are submitted to the City via Open311, so they get fixed (e.g. potholes) or classified as known obstacles (e.g. speed bumps).

That they actually do fix the bumps. I just recorded Washington street heading to Dedham from Rosi and it's horrific as it is frustrating.
The moment I heard about this app I thought, cool! now the city will know where the potholes are and fix them.
Well, there are two problems:
First; in order for this to really work, you have to AIM YOUR CAR AT THE POTHOLES!
Second; once I turned on the app, it reads Initializing sensors...--and that's all that happens. Zero bumps recorded.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
