PotholeSnitch reports the precise location of potholes or other problems to the authorities. You can help your town keep its roads in shape!

PotholeSnitch displays a map which is centered on your current location. You can drop pins on as many distinct locations as you like. For finer accuracy, you can drag the pins as needed to their precise locations.

With the PotholeWatch extension, you can easily add snitches from your Apple Watch and email or tweet them from your iPhone at a later time.

To post your snitch, touch the Report! button on your phone. PotholeSnitch will construct a template email or a tweet for you.

Emails now include a brief description of each issue, including the GPS location, time, and street address for all pinned snitches. New: A single link is included that gives driving directions to all the issues so that the authorities know exactly where to find them.

Tweets report a single snitch issue, a nearby street address and a link to the mapped location. Each tweet includes the #PotholeSnitch hashtag, and the municipality name to make it straightforward for the authorities to receive your tweet.

You can edit any kind of snitch before you post it, whether it's a tweet or an email.

Even though its name is PotholeSnitch, you can snitch on more than potholes. Report broken streetlights, illegal dumping in a remote area that has few landmarks, road-kill, dangerous situations (e.g., road debris or flooding), or just about anything you think is appropriate that isn't an absolute emergency.

Be a Snitch! It's an easy way to be a good citizen!

Ratings and Reviews

Great app, just a few fatal bugs

Kyle Bandy

This app's idea is great, but there are a few problems:
-No option to force the iPhone to stay on and not go to sleep. This would be handy so I could keep this app up in my car and could just hit a button to tag the location whenever I found a problem.
-Tagged locations aren't saved when the app is closed. I just tagged a couple of potholes, but now they're lost because I went to another app.

This app should be utilized by cities everywhere to provide a way for citizens to handily and precisely report potholes on the iPhone.

Great App!


I have been trying to find and/or write a program like this for the city I work for, for years!!! Thanks we will be using this! Woul like to talk with the developer of this program!
