At one point or another, everyone knows the feeling of misplacing an item. At best, the lost is inconvenient. At worst, the item can be deeply sentimental and irreplaceable.

By leveraging the MTA Lost and Found feed to create a centralized portal for filing a claim, our app enables commuters to visualize different categories of lost items and become notified when their item has been recovered.

Since the time that the MTA released this data, more than 180,000 items has been catalogued, yet only 60,000 has been claimed. We believe that our app can help close this gap.

Whether if you lost your wallet, keys, or a sentimental hand-knitted scarf, FoundIt will help make sure you find it.
