The City of Charlotte’s “My-Charlotte,” a mobile application for accessing municipal services on-the-go, is now available on the Blackberry platform. In October, the City released an iPhone version of the application followed by a Droid version earlier this month. The Blackberry application is available for use on 5.0 or higher operating systems. For Blackberry users with an operating system below 5.0, they can access the application via www.abbycloud.com/my-charlotte.
 
Just like iPhone and Android users, Blackberry owners will be able to use the “My-Charlotte” application to:
  • Obtain flight and parking information at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport
  • Receive traffic accident updates from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police
  • Access a link to download the CATS mobile application for transit information
  • Access services via 311 to report graffiti, potholes and other neighborhood nuisances

The goal of the application is to give residents more options to access citizen service. Through investment in such technology, the City is able to manage its costs. A traditional call made to 311 costs the City $4.91 per call, while a report made through My-Charlotte costs less than 75¢.
