Venice311 App! Snap Photo! Share A Story! Post To Facebook & Twitter! BAM!

Nothing like a multi-victim shooting & homicide to divert you away from the launch of your app… but I am happy to announce that with the help of NewsBloom, The Venice311 App soft-launch day has arrived! For a while I was trying to figure out the perfect balance of our special local flavor in an app that is Venice-centric, while still integrating the ability to share to Twitter, Facebook (and eventually WordPress too!) – and the folks at NewsBloom cooked up the perfect thing!

For the soft-launch, as we test things out and work out a few things – the links shared to Twitter & Facebook will point back to the App. This may seem a bit unexpected… and of course at first you’ll have to download the app (Free on iTunes, Android coming soon!) – but once you do that you’ll see the gleaming potential! Take a photo, post a story, place it on a location on our map… and BAM! You can browse stories, click on them for more info, and share them to Twitter and Facebook. If I didn’t have my own new app, I wouldn’t have known about the whole story of the Pier Jumper from last night that woke me and half the neighborhood up!

You can comment on stories, follow restaurants, incidents, crimes, shops, food trucks… anything anyone wants to post. Its all about the neighborhood! So if you have an iPhone, give it a whirl! We have a whole list of cool new features in the pipeline… so let us know your comments and such. See you in the app!

Actual app screen grab of a user pic an story! AWESOME! Pretty soon I'll be able to post these straight to the website too, allowing all the users to create content that can be easily posted to the site!

Give it a whirl! Soon anything that is posted in the app… I will be able to automatically post to the Venice311 website & retweet & facebookit as well! Yipee!

Click here to go to the iTunes store and download the app! BAM!
