Something happened with the latest update for Android that broke the geo-location services. When using the map to submit a request instead of allowing you to scroll to your desired location, select, and populate that address it now just auto defaults you to what the app believes is the address of your CURRENT geo location. That's a big time error and it makes it difficult to use the app. I hope this is fixed soon.

Doesn't work at all anymore. Always says "Request Create Error There was a problem creating your request, please try again." Make sure you type specifically what is wrong in the Additional Information field, the city's workers never see the pictures. Worst 311 app I've ever used. The good ones let you take a picture of the problem as soon as you open them, automatically record your position, and let you optionally submit more information so you can get on with your day. This one makes you go through multiple mandatory pages and the very last one asks for a picture so you can't go anywhere until you are done. No wonder few people use it. Often gives me the error "Request Create Error" "There was a problem creating your request, please try again." Sometimes that means a ticket was opened, so if I try again I'll open a duplicate one. Other times the only way to get rid of that error is to remove the picture. If you add three pictures to a ticket, there is no way to remove any of them when that error pops up, you have to start over from scratch. Every picture I submit gets rotated 90 degrees. You have to have an Internet connection to submit issues. It can't queue up multiple issues to submit next time you are on wifi. Clicking on old issues to see their status often crashes the app. I got a call from one of the city's workers about a ticket, turns out they only get a printout of the ticket with some of the information I've entered and no pictures.

The app is what you would expect from an app put out by the city. It crashes a lot. It's slow. It's ridgid. want to report something and don't know the address within a few buildings? Not gonna happen! If you're used to See Click Fix and are hoping for a similar experience disappointment is what you'll be able to report. Maybe I can grease the palm of my alderman an get the real version of the app?

We have pushed a lot of updates to the app since we first launched. We hope you can update it and give us another chance! Regardless, thank you for your feedback.
