iPhone app targets ASBO holders

iPhone app targets ASBO holders

By harvesting information from local authorities, a new iPhone app is able to tell owners what percentage of their local community has been branded with an anti-social behaviour order (ASBO).

The Asborometer app is also available from the Android Market and it is likely to offer home seekers a quick way of finding out as to how good or bad a particular neighbourhood may be before they make their move.

The app also lets buyers search for ASBO information on their home town, with a leaderboard ranking the towns in the UK based on ASBO rates.

31-year-old Jeff Gilfelt, who created Asborometer, said that although the app's name is "fun" it also has a "serious message."

Estate agents could find that the app has a significant impact on their businesses by allowing potential clients the chance to judge an area without even having to visit it.
