The release of this new Android app is an exciting upgrade for all of our current partners.
"The Android extension has become atop priority over the past six months due to consumer and government behavior on the platform," said Ben Berkowitz, CEO, SeeClickFix. "We've seen from our users that local government employees are more likely to be carrying a government issued smartphone or tablet, with many on the Android OS. We saw issues created by government officials increase by 600 percent in 2013, indicating that smartphone reporting apps are becoming a popular medium for increasing municipal productivity and citizen engagement."
