Open Data
This is another great example of how the administration's efforts to "liberate" data for public use can lead to cool apps like this one.

Clean water
Many of us take clean water for granted, but I can see how this app would be essential in situations where waterways may have unexpectly become polluted. I bet Sochi visitors wish they had this to monitor their hotel tap water.

EPA app
Intersesting and useful. Clean water is something we really do need to be concerned about.
