DigiTally lets users report problems throughout the city, and even send a picture of what needs to be fixed.

"Doing it through the DigiTally app makes it very simple for citizens. If they see an issue like pot holes, graffiti, a broken street light, they can snap a photo and submit it directly to the city departments,” said Carrie Poole with the City of Tallahassee.

But it doesn’t stop there. DigiTally is chock full of information residents might need.

"It's not just a place to complain about your problems, but you can there to find out information about things that are going on in the community in the calendar, find information about parks and facilities and trails, things like that,” said Vanriper.

Officials are now working to add a bus tracker and traffic maps to the app, helping users stay even more connected to their city.

"It's a more efficient line of communication that the city offers it's citizens with the goal of further enhancing our ability to provide quality customer service," said Poole.
