Changing the world, one city at a time

Our mission

To become the world’s app for cities, communities, and residents.

We take the entire city and turn it into a single, simple app to which the city’s management, police, schools, non-profits, religious groups, and other city communities get direct access. Instead of polarizing, we unite and thus make every city a great place to live.

Our story

Simplicity App is used in over 120 cities and communities. Our founders asked themselves a simple question: “Today, we have our banks, taxis and movies on our phone, why not our city?”

Following its success in Europe, the company raised over $8.5M in seed funding for U.S. expansion, backed by U.S., European and Israeli VCs and Angel Investors.
