The City of Decatur has launched its own mobile app, available for iPhones and Android smartphones. The city worked with MyCommunity Mobile to create the app, which is intended for residents and visitors. It can be downloaded for free by searching for “City of Decatur official” on the App Store or Google Play.

The City of Decatur app includes a brief background on Decatur, the City Hall address and a link to the city’s website. There’s also a list of city services and department phone numbers, a list of the city’s recreation facilities with contacts and maps, a news section, weather, and a calendar of events.

Users will also be able to report an issue by taking a photo, recording an audio message or taking a video. A notifications section will allow the city to send information via the app during emergencies.

A Shop & Dine link is a complete list of Decatur’s shops and restaurants that include website links, directions and an option to place a telephone call
