Phone app delivers ASBO alerts

A newly-launched app for the iPhone informs users of how many people with anti-social behaviour orders (ASBOs) live in their area.

The ASBOrometer pulls data from public domain government databases courtesy of the Home Office and delivers it in to your iPhone in a nicely-formatted table. Th app is also available for Google's Android.

It delivers maps of where ASBO hotspots are as will as the average population in a certain areas plus the level of anti-social behaviour based on "perceptions" statistics.

Jeff Gilfelf, the Asbo apps's developer, reckons that despite its "fun" name, it has a serious message.

We're just not sure what the message is.
