While emergency-reporting apps are not a shockingly new innovation, the fact of the matter is that smartphone apps make for an efficient reporting tool for all kinds of issues, which is precisely why the mayor of the city of Lincoln, Nebraska is launching an innovative civic app, called UPLNK, to help city residents report problems to pertinent authorities.

This particular civic app is designed specifically for non-emergency issues, with residents able to download the free app and use it to report problems such as broken streetlights, exposed potholes and fallen tree branches. Users can even take photos and upload them with their requests, giving authorities the information they need to act swiftly.

By putting proactive civic reporting in the hands of city residents, the UPLNK app ensures that the entire community can contribute to the smooth running of maintenance work in the city.
