App of the Month: Voice Your View

The VoiceYourView iPhone app, VYView, has been designed to allow you to comment on the public space in which you are in. Be it a comment about litter in the street, poor lighting or perhaps you wish to comment on the architecture of your surroundings.

When you submit a comment, VoiceYourView will automatically categorise your comment according to content and location, and your comment will contribute to summaries presented online and in location.

The app allows you to enter a text comment, and when submitted will transmit this along with your location, your device's unique ID and the optional information to our server, where it will be processed. If you are not using a location aware device (or you have turned off location services) you will be prompted to describe your location by road name, building name, nearby shop etc.

The App was developed by InfoLab21 researcher Dr Will Simm as part of a cross-disciplinary research project funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council's (EPSRC) Digital Economy Programme. It is a collaboration between five leading universities in the UK. You can read more about the research and view the Voice Your View App on the App store from the links below.

"App of the Month" features some of the Apps to come out of InfoLab21's research and collaboration.
