Spy and Snitch With Your Smart Phone With PatriotApp!

(Thanks to piglipstick for story and link.)

You can spy and snitch away on neighbors and strangers and the rest of us the hoi polloi, with a new smartphone app by Citizen Concepts' Patriot App. The application links your cell phone to the FBI, CDC, EPA and other agencies.

Citizen Concepts announces the launch of PatriotAppTM, the world's first iPhone application that empowers citizens to assist government agencies in creating safer, cleaner, and more efficient communities via social networking and mobile technology. This app was founded on the belief that citizens can provide the most sophisticated and broad network of eyes and ears necessary to prevent terrorism, crime, environmental negligence, or other malicious behavior.
"More efficient?" That smacks of allegiance- to- the- state- mentality -propaganda hyperbole. They close with these reassuring words, oh, and a blinking real time "terror alert" button:
PatriotApp encourages active citizen participation in the War on Terror and in protecting their families and surrounding communities.
