Watching Them Watching You?

GovTech reports that the City of Philadelphia has launched an iPhone and iPad app to report suspected fraud or waste of taxpayer dollars:
Developed in-house, primarily through the efforts of Brian Dries, director of communications for the controller’s office, the app can be downloaded for free from iTunes or the Apple App Store. Philadelphia residents can send messages, pictures and videos anonymously of events they believe are fraudulent.
GovTech's Brian Heaton reports the app cost $5,400 to make and took three and a half months to build.
