City’s 3-1-1 system comes of age during Sandy crisis [Philadelphia Daily News] “In addition to those calls, the city’s new “Philly311” mobile app, launched in September, got a real-life test. Officials reported that 462 requests were made via the app from Sunday through Tuesday – and on Monday, at the height of the storm, “Philly311″ became the 33rd-most-downloaded app in the App Store, city officials said. A map of app requests submitted during the storm shows that residents across the city, in almost every neighborhood, used the app.”
