A recently released application, CityPin allows users to post and track faults and incidents within metros.
The app description reads:

CityPin reconnects people by using the power of mobile technology to allow concerned citizens to make each other aware of issues and problems in the place they are living, working and cultivating. CityPin is about you the citizen.
This app is a product of KURB KINGS. KURB KINGS wants to help you make a difference. One city at a time. We specialize in creative solutions for everyday problems through a variety of approaches. We are most geared towards nurturing/encouraging meaningful and effective community engagement.
