Create Apps For San Francisco! It Is A Contest, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom,

San Francisco City App Store & Contest

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, made a post on Techcrunch requesting all to join in a contest for creating Apps for San Francisco.

City has seen many new developments since his appointment and continue to do so in all departments. But if you read more into his campaign, you will notice that he wants do more, he wants to bring "EDUCATION" back to California, I am really looking forward to see that Mayor.)
Getting back to the City App Store and the App contest, the app contest is coming up in the foot steps of the success with City App Store  which became a hit in just six weeks. The City App Store utilizes data provided by
So far the response has been tremendous and Mayor want all the talented developer to join and make San Francisco a better place for everyone from Moms(Mom Maps) to Dads(Dadnab) and beyond.
