Snap Send Solve is a mobile app for iOS and Android that lets you ping your local council about issues that need fixing; be it damaged roads, insufficient parking, graffiti, broken playground equipment, a buildup of litter or anything else that gets your goat. The app has now been rebuilt from the ground up with new features and an improved user interface.
As its name implies, Snap Send Solve allows you to take photos of public property that need fixing — the attached picture is then automatically sent to the relevant council authority using your phone’s GPS data. (You can also send the email report sans picture if you prefer.) It’s not uncommon to get a response from the council within 24 hours of reporting an issue.
When we last reported on Snap Send Solve, the app had a user base of 20,000: if the app makers are to be believed, this has since leaped to 70,000.
