3x3 developed a crowdsourcing app that helps users discover new information and enhance their experience in New York neighborhoods. Quick sound bites, with tips from locals, encourage users to explore neighborhoods they might not visit, and help tourists uncover sites not found in their tour guides.
The application was developed for NYC BigApps, a civic tech initiative that challenges developers, designers, and entrepreneurs to create tech tools that address civic challenges and make New York City a better place to live. The application makes it easier for New Yorkers and visitors to travel outside familiar or famous locations to see the diversity of New York neighborhoods. The purpose is to promote increased patronage at small businesses in outer borough neighborhoods.
