London, Feb 19 (ANI): A new mobile phone app has been invented that can give its users information about thugs and nuisances that are present in an area.
The gizmo, which lifts information from Government databases before beaming it to mobiles, has been dubbed "the estate agent's worst nightmare", as it can tip off would-be house buyers about nasty neighbourhoods.
"It's the quickest way to find out how chavvy your town is," the Sun quoted tech writer Drew Cullen as saying.
The application, called Asborometer and based on postcodes, is free to download and works on the iPhone and Google's Android system.
"Although its name is fun, it has a serious message," creator Jeff Gilfelt, 31, added. (ANI)
