Palo Alto City Apps

The City of Palo Alto is gradually building a portfolio of useful apps for use by our community. Below you will find a selection of some of these apps. Along with the items listed below, the city also offers a variety of eServices that can be accessed by visiting the Online Services site.  As we progress with our digital city strategy we anticipate many more apps being deployed. While some apps will live here, we will ultimately host apps on apps stores such as the Apple App store, Android Market Apps, and the Windows phone and desktop stores.
