If you have been looking for a way to help aid the efforts in the Gulf, MapTheSpill.org has a free mobile app available. With the app users can send report logs, upload photos and map their locations. The information is gathered through MapTheSpill.org for public viewing in hopes of better understanding affected areas.
"Map the Spill provides an opportunity for individuals who are being affected by the oil spill to get the word out on the real-time repercussions as well as the collective clean-up efforts," said Rich Rudow, general manager of Trimble Outdoors. "Map the Spill empowers citizens in a way never done before, so entire communities can be a part of the reporting and clean up. Now individuals in the Gulf Coast can have an opportunity to take part in the oil spill story as it unfolds."
The app is free an currently available for download from the link below. We're not 100% sure what devices are supported, but the website states it is good to go for 16 devices. It should be popping up in BlackBerry App World soon as well.
