iBurgh-redux redux?

Since I was given such a straight line by Jon Geeting who points out a story in Allentown's Morning Call: Pothole problem? Allentown's got an app for that.

According to Jon: "Allentown Is 1st PA City to Have an App"......  Is he correct? Huh?  However one classifies any software in Pittsburgh here, you have to notice that the Morning Call story didn't feel that a mention of anything going on in Pittsburgh was warranted.  Not a single mention!  It is all yet another odd datapoint in the great Pittsburgh mystery I explained the other day where all the great technology in town is transmuted into a form of dark matter when it crosses the Rubicon into the region's public sector.

Does that mean iBurgh is kaput?  The Morning Call story could be like revisionist history.. it's more like it is saying it never existed in the first place.  If nothing else there is a PR problem here.  Maybe it is all just a semantic distinction with regards to who actually published the software. Allentown's publisher appears to literally be the city there, and not a third party in most cases locally. 

Anyway..  I should have copyrighted iBurgh once upon a time.  That or the idea of a pothole repprting app.

Thanks for the link Chris. Probably should've known better than to take the MCall's word of it, regarding the "1st city" status.

Quick, Professor Briem, you'd better copyright iPension. With the city's pension problems, it's likely they'll need an app to solve them.

Looks like Yinzcam is now focused exclusively on spectator sports apps; like iBurgh has been removed from most app stores and like a project called CityZen which was to be "by the creators of iBurgh" is stalled or on hiatus. JB, are you out there, you had iBurgh installed does it still function?
