Want to sound off about the city? There's an app for that.

Mountain View residents can voice their questions and concerns about the city at any time and from anywhere, now that the city has introduced the Ask Mountain View iPhone application.

The application will work in conjunction with the Ask Mountain View online service, which was activated last November to facilitate communication between community members and city staff in almost every department, according to a press release from the city manager's office.

"The Ask Mountain View iPhone App has extended the benefits of Ask Mountain View into the palm of your hand, accessible anytime and from virtually anywhere," Mayor Ronit Bryant said.

The app is expected to become available for other smartphones in the near future. iPhone users can download it now for free through the iPhone App Store or at www.mountainview.gov.

Let me know when you've got an Android app and I'll be interested.

wow
"The Ask Mountain View iPhone App has extended the benefits of Ask Mountain View into the palm of your hand, accessible anytime and from virtually anywhere," Mayor Ronit Bryant said.

Now if you can just get the City Government to listen to the people anytime and from virtually anywhere we might move forward with a plan the people of Mountain View find acceptable.

Personally I do not trust the Mayor so why on Earth would I write anything to the Mayor and City Staff.

I wonder if there is an Ask Cupertino Android application.

I haven't used the iPhone app for this service, but I have used the on line service. I'm not impressed with the follow through.

Does anyone know if there's a single email address to send messages to the city council? I've collected the individual email addresses from the mountainview.gov website but sending one email to more than 5 addresses at a time often triggers spam filters.

Before we all wet ourselves over this revolutionary new app., lets remember what we used to call it: A suggestion box.
