How EPA Will Use Your Input About Ideas for Apps
Thanks for providing your personal opinion about which ideas you like best. Please tell us your opinion so we can show your feedback to software developers. Then we’ll work with them to turn the ideas into apps. You can see more details about the ideas on the app ideas spreadsheet, such as the EPA data sources for each app. If you’re a developer you may want to check out the resources on Developer Central and Data Finder.
