ASBOrometer app launches for the iPhone and Android

A new iPhone and Android app has launched that takes government data on ASB statistics and presents it to consumers in an easy-to-consume map-based format.

In other words, the ASBOrometer will tell you just how many Anti-Social Behaviour Orders have been handed out to your neighbours, or in other geographical areas.

"ASBOrometer measures levels of anti-social behaviour at your current location and gives you access to key local ASB statistics", reads the official blurb for the app, currently available for free on the App Store with data good for England and Wales.

Creator Jeff Gilfelt, 31, told The Telegraph: "Although its name is fun, it has a serious message". Gilfelt sees the app as useful for house buyers who can get an idea of the scale of anti-social problems in any given area.
