Fresh Android Apps for Nov. 12: Bing, TGI Black Friday, Pothole Reporter

Nov 12, 2010

For today’s batch of Fresh Android apps, have your questions answered in an instant, psych yourself up for Black Friday, and protect your car from potholes.

Potholes can flatten your tires, screw up your alignment and dent your car. Unfortunately, we never see them coming. It seems like every time you spot the pothole in the road, it’s already too late to divert yourself around it. Pothole Reporter is an app that shows users which spots on the road they should avoid and gives drivers a means to report issues to municipalities through simply using their GPS.

Just open the app and double tap on the screen to send a pothole location. Reports nationwide are displayed on a map at SaveMyTire.com to inform the public of potholes and to give the local government agencies the opportunity to respond efficiently.
