Services from your smartphone
We have developed some mobile apps for different services which you may find useful...
The Noise App
The app allows you to make short audio recordings of the noise and enter details about the nature of the disturbance using your smartphone which then combine to make an electronic noise diary. This can then easily be sent to the Council's Environmental Health Service for investigation by submitting the complaint via the app. You can download the app for free using your smartphone here: www.thenoiseapp.com
For information on using the app to see the attached user guide below. The Noise App User Guide (pdf)
Get your air pollution alerts with airText
The service can help at-risk individuals to make informed health decisions and assist them in planning for the day ahead to ensure they have any necessary medication at hand.
airText is a service that allows users to access air pollution, UV, pollen and temperature forecasts. Users can receive daily alerts by SMS, email or voicemail. In addition forecasts for the next three days can be accessed via the website www.airtext.info, using the free airText smart phone app or by following the Twitter account airtext_3RIVERS.
A free app called "Fix my Street" is available on smart phones, androids and tablets and can be downloaded now! Simply search for “Fix my Street” in your app store. This app enables the user to report a range of issues, (including fly tipping, graffiti, abandoned trolleys etc.) by taking a picture of the situation that requires reporting and submitting this. The location will be recorded when submitting the picture and this information will be used to send the report to the relevant Council.
