This app would help people access limited english proficiency (LEP) services in a variety of government, medical, and legal settings, and what to do if they are denied these services. With the high number of people in Washington who do not speak English as their primary language or even primary speakers who do not have the language proficiency to understand complex documents, this would help a classically marginalized ...more »
I'm not sure if there's readily available source information, but if there were an app for people to find clean restrooms open to the public that would be cool.
I drink a ton of water and luckily know where to go, but tourists and/or people new to any area would love it!
Or maybe it's just me...
A single source for validated information about electric vehicle charging stations -- nationwide.. One site does it all........
When searching for a home you can get a lot of data about prices, comps, and photos but there's a ton of data from the city and country you might not be aware of. Pandora's Home is a targeted application (mobile and/or web) that gives the end user information about permitted repairs, electrical work, sewer cards, and other pertinent data people need to know BEFORE they buy a home. This app will help users know up front ...more »
There is a movement across the country to develop animal abuser databases. Let’s start local and build up! By following animal cruelty cases as they move from the streets through the court system we can empower enforcement authorities, concerned citizens, and animal rescue organizations in their goals of increasing awareness and initiating public policy.
This app would use geo location and the database of city parking signs to determine if your car is legally parked.
Read data from your electronic health record and provides a basic list of allergies, medications and preferences to a first responder.
What's the emergency?
Wherever you are, when you hear sirens, launch this app. It will use geolocation to figure out where you are, then check police, fire, 911, and other data to see what emergency activity is going on near you.
It can sort by distance, and also translate 911 jargon into plain English.
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 »
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
A matching service for schools and community organizations that need things done and volunteers, ready and able to do them for free. Kind of a "task rabbit" for volunteer tasks.
I would like an app that would report abandoned (possibly stolen) vehicles in a neighborhood and allow owners to possibly track down their car. I know someone whose car was stolen in the middle of the night from in front of his house. It was found by the police by morning but the thieves had already stripped it and stolen everything from inside of it, even the battery and some parts. They left the vehicle to be picked ...more »
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 »
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.
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.
