Although almost two years old, this describes an app that allows people to record photos of crime, especially motivated in a setting of riots. I include it because it includes some discussion of the liabilities of apps like this.
“People respond by going online or downloading the app on their smartphone and using it to send images and clips to “an electronic bucket,” as CitizenGlobal officials describe it, which police can sort through for evidence. Designers say users can post anonymously and should strip metadata from files they send.
“Developers acknowledge the possibility that content could be misleading or doctored, but authorities say they would investigate any tips they receive. Submitted photos and videos would be used to corroborate other information gathered during the investigation, authorities say.”
