New app helps Seattle residents 'Find It, Fix It'

SEATTLE -- Reporting an abandoned car, pothole or unsightly graffiti is now as easy as a few swipes on your smartphone with the city of Seattle's "Find It, Fix It" app, which offers mobile users a new way to report issues to the city.

In addition to rough roads and unsightly alleyways, civic-minded citizens can also report abandoned vehicles or parking enforcement issues. There is also be an "other inquiry" category that allows users to provide feedback to the city. When making a report, users can snap a photo and add detailed information before submitting their complaint. In addition, the map's drag and drop feature or the phone's GPS technology can be used to pinpoint exactly where the complaint is located.

The app can be downloaded to any iPhone or Android phone.
