Will anyone use Toronto's new anti-graffiti app?

Posted by Chris Bateman / April 18, 2012

anti-graffiti app TorontoTaking the city's battle to clean up Toronto digital, Rob Ford visited a lane way near St. Clair and Lansdowne to unveil a new mobile app that lets citizens report unwanted graffiti instantly. Instead of coughing up for a phone call, smart phone users can now snap a picture and whisk it off to 311 for processing.

"This is as efficient as it gets," remarked Ford at press conference earlier today. "This will make it easier than ever to report graffiti vandalism and help keep the city spotless.

anti-graffiti app TorontoStanding in front of local residents busily painting over tags on garage doors, Ford pointed to a bridge on Scarlett Road near Lambton Golf Club as a clean-up success story he hopes to replicate across the city. "Once people know we mean business, the people that are causing this mess are going to learn a tough lesson," he declared.

anti-graffiti app TorontoThe app, which costs $1.99 (and is currently only available for iPhone), lets Apple smartphone users send photographs directly to the city with a request to remove of the offending material. If the property owner fails to clean up the tag, the city will - so they say - step in and bill the owner for the work.

anti-graffiti app TorontoThe fact the new app costs money to download (even though a portion of the money goes to the Toronto Library Foundation) might put some people off reporting problem tags. The fact it's only available for iPhone further narrows the app's scope to people with a particular brand of smart phone - possibly eradicating a chance to get people genuinely interested in reporting problems in their neighbourhood engaged. I also suspect the iPhone and graffiti-fighting demographics don't entirely cross over.

The other City-endorsed mobile app, the gratis "SeeClickFix", is also receiving extra promotion as part of the push for cleanliness. Interestingly, SCF allows its Blackberry, Android and iPhone users to report graffiti too, without the expense.

anti-graffiti app TorontoWould you pay to report graffiti in your neighbourhood? Do you think the City's new mobile-friendly approach to combatting vandalism will prove an effective tool?

unless the app developpers chose to donate their time for free, this is a classic example of gravy. And the idea of paying $1.99 to do something though an app that's FREE with a phone or a website just seem idiotic.

Cesar Palacio and Rob Ford... just add Doug and Mammo and you have a collective I.Q. less than their average shoe size... Interestingly posters have been appearing in Ward 17 encouraging folks to dump Palacio. About time!

Why would I pay $1.99 for an app that lets me take a picture and send it to the City, something I can do for free with my iPhone without the app if I want to?

This app freaks me out. Not that I'm against cleaning up graffiti or anything, but how long is it before you can instantly report any crime with an app? It's just another step towards 24/7 surveillance, and that worries me.

I have no respect for this arrogant, belligerent pig, or any initiative he launches. Try running a transparent City Hall you sonofabitch. Or maybe refer to Torontonians as 'citizens' instead of 'taxpayers'.

The graffiti vandalism on that garage just doesn't look "right". I don't know any writers who just scrawl "my turf" in one colour. No tags... I think this was done for the photo op.

Glad to see an actual graffiti artist putting up a piece once the door was primed! Why no mention of THAT in the article?

If only there was a was to send a free "Electronic Mail" type of telegram. Perhaps one that allows someone to send a textual message and attach a photographic image. That would be awesome. Someone should get to work on inventing it.

will people actually care so much to pay $1.99 to report something so silly?

i wish there was an app that I could snap photos of those youngin's doing drugs in my ally - get those kids educated about healthy living. I'd rather encourage those kids to make art!! Especially if it's on some boring white garage in an ally.

Let's encourage a healthy, happy city!

I may be in the minority here, but I actually like graffiti and wish there was more of it. I would much rather see the creative efforts of local people than to see corporate advertising everywhere. I wish there an app to remove ads around the city, but I don't think that's going to happen any time soon. I just don't understand the mentality of wanting to live in a sterile, boring environment. And before anyone says "how would you feel if *your* property had graffiti on it?", it does and I like it.

I would love an app or site where you could take a picture of some particularly obtrusive or offensive advertising, upload it(with your location sent as metadata or maybe as part of the picture post) and then local graffiti artists can browse the site and put graffiti over the ad. They can sign up anonymously and get 'points' or something for every ad they improve (though obviously this is the honour system, since there is no way to verify someone took care of it other than them saying they were the one to do it.)

I see graffiti this inane and pointless around the city all the time. "Fuck" scrawled in giant letters, random words or names, and so on. Even if it was applied for the photo op, there's definitely nonsense like that all over the city. Also, some of you may like graffiti but you should also respect that there are people don't want anything on their "boring white garage". Until you learn to appreciate both sides, you're just part of the same trash hellbent on defacing others' property.

How about a simple file upload form? I love that the city is getting on 'apps' now, when they should be moving towards simple mobile web based apps. Maybe I'll make an 'awesome toronto grafitti' app this weekend and release it for free. (I won't, because I'd rather not work on weekends). Finally, why not just roll it into seeclickfix?

I didn't say the graffiti is on the front of my house and the windows and door. There is a common understanding among graffiti writers/artists everywhere that private residences and places of worship should never be touched. But commercial buildings and other public spaces are fair game, especially if they are already plastered with advertising.

You may not like seeing graffiti everywhere and may wish it were all gone, and I understand that sentiment. But some of us feel the same way about the increasing presence of advertising *everywhere* in this city. I consider advertising in public places a form of visual pollution. Street art done by real people, often very creatively, I like.

I think the message that needs to get out is,that you could paint the Mono Lisa, but if you do not have permission of the building or business owner it is Graffiti vandalism. If a building owner or business request a mural it is now their decision and not the city's. Councillor Palacio did a great job on a very difficult issue, that being said the city should stop victimizing the victim.

There are two apps, one costs money, the other doesn't. If you want to report graffiti via an app, you have a choice, they both do the exact same thing.

That is one of the great things about the city's new Graffiti Management plan;its now between owners and artists. My sanity will probably be questioned, but I beleive this Mayor might become known as the Art Mayor.Not intentionally, but because of his antagonistic approach last year, artists, businesses, and city staff came up with a very progressive plan. The Mayor, along with the rest of the council deserve some credit;they voted unanimously for the plan. Toronto now has the opportunity to be the Graffiti Art, Art Mural and Street Art capital of Canada.

My walking tour company is trying to help Toronto become known as one of the great centres for street art and graffiti. Most people don't know the difference between the types of graf, and the depth of the subculture that is producing it. I am happy the city has created the new Street Art Toronto (StArT) program to help promote the positive community building aspect of street art. It seems weird that this initiative was started under Ford. Let's hope it lasts.

So let's have a look at the graffiti that's on your private property that you like so much. Let me save you the trouble, you won't because it's B.S. Though I would love to be proven wrong.

Other than this app being short-sighted, does it feel like we missed a valuable opportunity to streamline reporting ANY AND ALL problems to 311? Eg potholes and other problems?

You got it! Isn't it great? I used to have a house on a laneway and not only did we have to paint brick, because of wandering graffiti artists, but we had to continually paint it. The smart guy across the laneway hired someone to paint "art" on his wall and it was mostly left alone. And then, once we painted the entire side of the house (and kept a corresponding spray can on hand, always, to recover it from repeated graffiti), they started in on the wood fence. Time to sell the house on the laneway and goodbye Toronto!

I'm not surprised that some people think the graffiti is planted. "Fuck off" and "my turf" have too many letters in them for the "graffiti artists" in the St Clair and Lansdowne area. Usually it's just crappy tags or gang stuff like "MS-13".

Ford and Palaccio didn't have to set it up, there is already lots of crap like that on garages to get rid of. I can't tell where they went, but they should have started across the street from Earlscourt Park and the local community centre.

I use our city's graffiti reporting app almost daily. I detest graffiti - if you don't own it, don't paint it. Period. No debate.

Aside from that, graffiti works similar to the broken window theory. The more tags, the more it seems acceptable to break the rules, and then it snowballs.

I have probably reported over 50 tags in the past week.

I'd just like to point out that it took me all of 12 seconds to find the 311 Universal App on the App store. It's FREE, not specific to any city and does all the things the Rob Ford app promises. You click a picture, hit send and the app uploads the picture and sends the GPS co-ordinates your complaint and picture for you to the appropriate government office. It works for graffiti, potholes, abandoned cars, anything that's an eyesore or inconvenience in your neighbourhood that you're just tired of looking at. AND it's only 1MB of space taken up on your device. So yeah, I'm TOTALLY going to pay $2 for an app that only lets me report stuff in T.O.? Or not.

Seems like a pointless effort. Why not create more legal walls for graffiti artists ... it is so easy too, just pick a wall in a low-traffic area, designate it a legal graf wall and you're set. No app developing and smart phones and that bollocks. Certainly it won't prevent illegal graffiti but it WILL give kids a place to go when they just want to try it out, rather than painting in unwanted areas.

The good part about places that have done that is that often they get some really good artists who show up and they end up with a really beautiful, interesting piece of artwork. Doesn't help with taggers though. Some dude who wants to tag isn't just messing around, he's claiming territory or just intentionally defacing something.

I love the look of graffiti. Even random tagging- it really doesn't bother me at all. I think that Rob Ford spending money on cleaning up litter, like someone else said, and also start planting trees in areas void of greenery (like my street in Bloordale), the city would look much nicer and actually have a positive environmental impact. This seems like a big waste of time and energy.

Short answer: No.

"This is as efficient as it gets"? It costs almost $2 and is only available for iPhone. Depends on what Ford was describing as 'efficient'. The software, yes. The program, not so much.

Besides, not all graffiti is horrible. It adds character to a city; it's part of the urban landscape. However, some is tasteless, like in the photos in this article.

I'm still confused why people are completely fine driving by ING, Burger King, H &M etc. billboards all day long, never thinking twice - but when someone places something unique, one off and often times nice to look at (i'm talking about the street art...not the lame tags) they go off? And since when did we start labelling kids with spray paint cans inbred or degenerates....I honestly didn't think so many meat heads ready blog?

Not a bad idea, the only reason it won't work is because you need to pay for it. The problem with this is that the people who are reporting these issues are already taking out the time to do and having to pay to report seems alittle misleading...

This is so wrong for so many reasons.

1. This app only allows you to "snitch" as opposed to Washington's free app, DC 311, which has over 80 report areas including true customer service stuff, such as reporting trash, not picked up.

2. This app was developed by a third party with no city affiliation and the Mayor is using taxpayers' resources to shill for. Conflict of Interest again!!

3. As I mentioned earlier and mentioned by many others - DC 311 is free and this costs moolah.

4. The app didn't work. Three of us downloaded it for "research" purposes and it worked on neither iPhones or androids, crashing repeatedly.

5. The app is poorly designed, we found ourselves scrolling through repetitive (duplicate?) entries. Extremely confusing.

6. Public Leaf designed this. Who is Public Leaf anyway? Their website is pretty sparse and not very open or transparent.

7. The media and many commenters seem to have fallen for the mayor's spin that this app is a tool to help in the war against graffiti. Missed opportunity on what could be a good app offering an alternative channel for citizens to engage in positive activities with the City.

8. See Cory Doctorow's comments: http://boingboing.net/2012/04/19/torontos-dingleberry-mayor-r.html

desea con este equipo y cuando lo vean en sus manos disfrútenlo
todo lo que puedan ya que no alcanzará el tiempo para aprovechar todas sus opciones y utilidades que volverán
la vida realmente más sencilla y divertida.

This is so wrong! Im sorry but Im an artist and I dont see why people are wanting to rid the streets of some ones work. People say they dont want to be forced to see these pieces of work yet you dont see them complaining about the big billboards covered in commercials that no one wants to see. Would you not rather look at a piece of art on a wall then some commercial that some bigwig like Mayor "Ford" paid for. I understand not wanting to see that writing of foul words and stupid phrases but keep the real work that people used there talent to make.

This war on graffiti in Toronto is becoming really ridiculous. On the one hand, there is the mayor´s idea to use this paid iPhone app to fight against graffiti in the city, on the other hand that nonsensical panel, which will, in fact, decide which owners have to pay for the graffiti on their buildings. All summed up, the victims are going to pay(as it happens in every war) for the graffiti on their walls and in addition, they are supposed to pay for this app(should they buy an iPhone at once?) to be able to report vandalism on their property. Well, isn't it just wonderful? I bet that every city would give anything for such a wise mayor.

I think I would be more likely to use it if it were completely free. I just helped my brother do garage door repair in Calgary and I will not be happy if I find out it got tagged.

Very interesting. There are also plenty of anti-graffiti solutions with modern technology. This, of course, is more a matter of prevention methods. http://bit.ly/1amvAPV
