During major emergencies, the cell network breaks under too much voice traffic. SMS requires way less bandwidth. So, why not anticipate the next big outage and work with cell carriers to limit the cell network to sms traffic, thereby increasing capacity by 10x- 100x. This ties in with text to 911 idea someone submitted--which would be an essential component if authorities chose to throttle voice and video traffic.
An app that would show the real-time availability of the city's public tennis courts. This would allow tennis players who arrive at court that is full to do a seach on their phones to see which nearby courts are not in use
What number do you call if you have a non-emergency? Could we offer a single number via Twilio that has a directory so people could find the right number? Or maybe a single website with different organizations and numbers tagged and indexed, so that they can be easily found.
A single source for validated information about electric vehicle charging stations -- nationwide.. One site does it all........
The app would provide ability to report litter, dead animals, pot holes on our roads. Many times we find either litter or dead animals on the road but do not know where to report it. The app would provide the data to county so they can focus their road cleaning to the specific locations. User will be able to tap on the phone to record the geo location, or note down the nearest milestone or take a picture and send it to ...more »
Make widgets (e.g. WordPress widgets) that let local blogs easily re-use and filter open data sets for display on their blogs. For example, show recent crime reports by zip code.
what many ideas already posted point to and could use would be a two-way data gathering and dissemination system like NYC's 311. I laugh every time I see an ad for King Co's "Links by Zip" How archaic! We need 311 to digest the data. Then apps to interface with it.
Your family's in town and you have nothing planned. App would allow you to quickly access local museums, parks, public art and events based on your current location or an address you enter.
Seattle shuts down when it snows.

Seattle does not yet have a decent app / website to track what food trucks are nearby. This site would keep an index of the popular food truck locations, as well as each truck's schedule. It would also scan twitter and facebook to track last minute changes or cancellations.
Do you need to find a conference room to hold a community meeting? How about teach a yoga class or a run a monthly D&D campaign? This would be an app and a website that allows the user to search community centers and other public spaces for available times and locations to hold their meetings/classes, and allows them to sign-up, reserve or pay for the space. Search criteria can be entered, such as number of people, price ...more »
With Summer on the way it would be wonderful to have an application where you can reserve a picnic table or check for availability without being confined to the office hours of the Parks Department to make a reservation or check for availability
There are so many good farmer's markets around, but it can be challenging to remember exactly which ones are open when and where they are. Knowing what produce is fresh today can also help motivate consumers to find a market. This app would solve that problem. More creative possibilities are also there: for example, how could we help users build relationships with farmers? Would pull Farmer's Market locations from https://data.seattle.gov/Community/My-Neighborhood-Map/82su-5fxf ...more »
