With Overhere App you can very easily and rapidly post suggestions to improve (in any way) the place you are in; and you can read and vote for other people's suggestions about it.
It is cosmos's new crowdsourced location based direct tool to diagnose and improve itself through us.
A lean layer of consciousness floating over the earth.
An autonomous nervous system able to tell where the world aches and how to cure it.
A decentralized feedback application with...
- Ok, ok, I get the idea. So how do I use it?
Just open the app, and write down your suggestion where it says: "How could this place be any better",
and press the POST button. That's it, takes about 12 seconds.
The app records your GPS position, but if the place has a name, you can write it down in the field below.
- And will my improvement idea ever be heard by someone who could actually do something about it?
Well, let's hope so, word travels; particularly in the case of disinterested anonymous suggestions for improvement.
Also, if you know or find out the email of that someone who could actually do something about it you can use the share button to send him a pre-formatted email letting him know how people feel.
Or you can shre it on facebook and Twitter to spread the influence of your proposal
Finally, persons who are responsible for a place and wish to improve it, can subscribe to receive news of all posts written about it.

You can, just try to make it about the place you are in and of general interest
- Is there any limitation on what I can publish?
Yes, it is forbidden to insult or offend in any way, and you should avoid including personal names.
It is about the ideas, not the persons.
- What about the 'Ranking'?
