Kevin Wells’ application that allows you to view and report local problems, such as pesky potholes, broken bollards, smashed streetlights, and so on, has seen an update.
Version 1.06 of StreetFix now limits itself to only having one copy run at a time, and has had a couple of user interface improvements:
- The descriptions of problems already reported were buttons, but they now look more button-like.
- Clicking on those buttons produces a menu, which now has an option to save a GPX file containing the location of the issue. This can be loaded into an application that understands these files, such as RiscOSM to display it on a map.
Kevin has also made some changes under the bonnet, changing some of the code so that the program can be more easily adapted for other countries that use the same platform for reporting and checking on local problems. That platform is Fix My Street, which StreetFix communicates with via Wget.
If you find any of Kevin’s software useful, why not consider rewarding him for it by buying some merchandise or with a small contribution.
