WrApp it up: NYC free condom finder application for smartphones
DAA applauds the New York City Health Department who launched the NYC Condom Finder, a free smartphone app to locate the five nearest venues that distribute free condoms. When using the app you can either determine the nearest location through GPS (global positioning system) or enter an address. The application then provides specific directions to each venue (you can even choose from walking, driving or public transportation directions), the hours of operation for each location, the types of safer sex products available and helpful tips on condom usage. With almost 1,000 condom distribution locations throughout the five boroughs currently accessible through the mobile app, New Yorkers and visitors of the city will find that no matter where they are, they can always be protected from HIV. We encourage cities all over the world to follow the example of the city that never sleeps (but apparently is busy doing other things): distribute free condoms and make them easy to find. Hurray for another smart way to promote safe sex! Want to join the conversation? Go to their facebook page.
