Citizen Next, a Microsoft Garage project, is a “technology for good” solution which is designed to help citizens connect to municipalities easily and effectively, to report issues or civic infrastructure concerns. The app aims to bring the power of ubiquitous mobile computing, Bing Maps and Bing’s location understanding services together with relevant and available government online services to make our cities and towns a better place to live in, which can be accomplished with your help! For example, take a picture of the pothole you seen on the road that is causing a traffic jam, or garbage you see on the road and post the concern to civic authorities. You can easily set the location of the problem on the map, even if you don't know the exact address. Your issues and your personal information may be sent to civic authorities who may follow-up. Microsoft will not be responding to or resolving any of the issues, other than passing them along to civic authorities that participate in the app. In the current version, only Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation(GHMC) in India is supported. Microsoft Garage turns fresh ideas into real projects. Learn more at
