MANCHESTER - The city of Manchester has launched an app for iPhones and Androids that is aimed at making communication between residents and city departments faster and more efficient. Economic Development Director William Craig says the aim is to create a one-stop shop for all your city needs.
Craig says everything you can do online through the City's website you can now do through the app faster and more efficiently. The list includes links to airport check-in, city alerts and advisories, events, city directories with one-touch email and phone contacts, job and meeting postings, and even bill payment.
The app also includes a reporting feature that lets residents take a picture and report city issues such as potholes, graffiti and broken street lights. Craig says the work order will be immediately delivered to the appropiate department to fix the problem.
The idea was originally proposed by Mayor Ted Gatsas in January after seeing how it worked in other cities. Craig says he expects the app will improve services in the city and increase government accountability.
The app cost the city about $2000 intially and costs about $1000 a month to maintain. Craig says the money comes from the Economic Development budget.
The app, called "Manchester, NH Connect" is free and currently available and through your iPhone App store and Google Play store.
