We are proud to announce the launch of the Hollaback! iPhone app! The iPhone App gives us a response to street harassment that will be mapped and heard, transforming the isolating experience of street harassment into an opportunity to tell the world that street harassment is not OK.

.When you sign into the iPhone app, you will be given choice to Hollaback! with or without a picture, describing the type of harassment: verbal, flashing, groping, assault, or other. A GPS mapping feature automatically tracks where the harassment is taking place, and maps it on iHollaback.org. Then, you’ll gets an email entitled “You Hollaback’ed!” where you are encouraged to tell the rest of your story when you are safely back at your computer. The iPhone app will pilot in the U.S., with plans to expand internationally. A Droid app is scheduled to launch later this week.
This app was funded, designed, and built by some incredible people. We want to give a special thank you to our 356 Kickstarter donors, our friends atRightRides and Orange Mico, and our volunteers Jill Dimond and Sophia Shoemaker. We couldn’t have done this without you.
