Bike Crash Phone App

A lawyer in Brooklyn has created an app that lets cyclists involved in collisions quickly gather the necessary information needed to support them in a court case. The app contains recording features that allow the user to film the scene, take witness accounts, quickly sketch the accident and compile all the necessary information in a manner more organized than just scribbling on the nearest piece of paper. Released in July, the app has been downloaded by over 400 people, mainly in the Brooklyn area. Available for both iphones and Androids, the app can be purchased in the itunes store here.
