Google has launched an innovative new smartphone app, simply dubbed 'Crowdsource', that is designed to make it possible for users to carry out simple tasks that allow them to contribute crowdsourced feedback to Google regarding its vast array of different services including but not limited to Google Maps and Google Translate.

The app, which is available for free download through the Google Play store, encourages people to contribute to this crowdsourced feedback initiative in order to rest assured in the knowledge that they've "made the Internet a better place for your community". The tasks in question take only a few seconds, and require users to do things such as translate street signs for example.

The Crowdsource app is a great example of crowdsourcing being leveraged by big tech companies to gain feedback and improve the quality of their services.
