I found an interesting site today call NYC BigApps from New York City Economic Development Corporation and the NYC Department of Information Technology & Telecommunications that asks a simple questions – If you could have any application to make New York City better, what would it be? The goal of the competition is to have the public submit ideas for Apps that could benefit residents, visitors or business in NYC and be subsequently developed for the NYC BigApps Competition; and to engage the broader public as well as the developer community in identifying technology that could improve quality of life for New Yorkers. The ideas range from the smart and practical like “I want a NYC app that creates a social network within apartment buildings, allowing for better communication and easier transitions for new tenants” to the more humorous like “I want a NYC app that turns my subway commute into a snowboarding challenge where people are encouraged to stand while maintaining balance within the subway car.”. Submissions run through July 28th so if you have any good ideas submit them now.
