iPhone that pothole report!

Earlier this week Boston Globe reports that officials there are about to launch an iPhone application that would let residents take a picture on their cell phone of a pothole or other problem around town and send it to the city’s complaint hotline.

The application — said to be the first of its kind in the nation — would be free for residents to download from Apple’s iPhone store, but the city plans to pay $25,000 to Connected Bits, the New Hampshire firm that designed the software, for a one-year test drive of the product.
