EUREKA- Humboldt's very first smartphone app is now in it’s final stages of design. County residents were able to test out the app for the past month and leave feedback for the developers. Yesterday ended the public comment stage. The app is called My Humboldt and will work on both androids and iPhones. From the app you can make online payments, report potholes, access county agendas and more.

The app comes after a recent re-design of the county’s website in July. It is part of a packaged deal with the developers and the county is not paying extra for its creation. Developers hope to have the final version of the app available by January.

“We hope that people are going to start using it,” Humboldt County Public Information Specialist Sean Quincey said. “We always want people to be able to access information and services that the county offers and we think that having this mobile app will help do that and in future years it will be something that we always try to develop.”
