To raise awareness about local community issues
What it does
The YASSSS app which stands for You All See Something, Say Something -- inspired by our city's unofficial motto for public safety, and our team's favorite word of encouragement is a community platform to raise awareness and increase local resident's involvement in community issues. Top voted issues in your community are sent weekly to your local district representative to keep them in the loop as well as to expedite issue resolution. Team work makes the dream work.
How we built it
This app is built in Swift 4
Challenges we ran into
Brainstorming and finalizing the app concept and design took up the most amount of time. We initially tried to built out the full app and thought of a lot of features for it but there wasn't enough time to build it all out
Accomplishments that we're proud of
That we finished the prototype & presented YASSSS!
What We learned

What's next for YASSSS
Some of us will continue to work on YASSSS. Stay tuned!
